Wreckless Marine offers a complete hydrographic surveying and mapping service.
Wreckless Marine is systematically surveying areas of interest on the South African coast. Using multibeam sonar we are mapping previously undiscovered reefs and wrecks and are building an extensive data-base of our seafloor. We share our data with the South African Council for Geoscience and the General Bathymetric Chart of the Oceans (GEBCO) – specifically contributing to its Seabed 2030 project.
Wreckless II is a fully fledged survey vessel.
R2Sonic 2026 Multibeam Echosounder
Our R2Sonic 2026 Multibeam Echosounder is state-of-the-art, providing detailed bathymetric imagery of the seafloor. We use this for seabed and habitat mapping and for shipwreck surveys.
R2Sonic 2026 Side Scan
The R2Sonic 2026 also has high-resolution side scan capabilities, which is extremely useful for characterising the makeup of the seafloor and identifying marine habitats.
JW Fishers Proton 5 Magnetometer
Our Proton 5 Magnetometer is a great tool for shipwreck detection, particularly where wreckage is buried beneath sandy overlays.
Technical and scientific diving are key activities at Wreckless Marine and we offer a full range of diving services.
Our dive club, Wreckless Divers, is one of the most active dive groups in South Africa and we welcome visitors and collaboration with other dive groups who share a passion for dive exploration and adventure.
Wreckless Marine is well positioned to facilitate and partner on a wide range of ocean exploration expeditions and projects.
We are passionate about exploration and discovery and actively collaborate with like-minded individuals and institutions to further our objective of expanding the knowledge of what lies beneath our seas. As such, we are an ideal partner for marine expeditions and research projects alike.
