As a part of the institutional project, 'Application of Geological and Geophysical methods in Marine Archaeology and Underwater Explorations, (OLP 0008)', exploration and excavation of shipwrecks have been carried out from 23 Jan 2006 to 21 Feb 2006 for 11 days in Sunchi Reef, Amee shoals, Aguada bay and Cabo, off Goa waters (India). The objectives of the survey were three fold: (1) To locate and explore new wreck sites which are mentioned in the Hydrographic chart No: 2020, (2) Further explorations in and around the Sunchi wreck site to find new antiquities and artifacts, (3) Deployment of echosounder to understand the seabed topography of the region. Positions of all underwater explored sites were obtained in Global Positioning System (GPS). Artefacts found during exploration were collected for further research and analysis.
