Biscayne National Park’s Maritime Heritage Trail is a new beginning into the United States scheme of managing submerged cultural resources with a major focus on the education of the resource users and protectors. It is believed that the past management plans put out by the United States governing agencies were flawed because of their failure to protect the submerged cultural resources. This report focuses on a portion of the Maritime Heritage Trail project including the Historic research required to fully understand each vessel and the geographic mapping that helps park visitors to be aware of their surroundings. This report also makes suggestions for the future of management of the submerged cultural resources included within Florida state waters and the Contiguous Zone of the Untied States.
