Shipwreck Locator

Prop Labs, LLC
[ This app is no longer available for download ]


Shipwreck Locator by Prop Labs is a application that visually displays all know locations of shipwrecks, obstacles, and debris fields. The data included is based on NOAA's Office of Coast Survey's (OCS) Automated Wreck and Obstruction Information System (AWOIS) database. Data includes locations in the Great Lakes, around Florida, Delaware, California, in the Gulf of Mexico, and EVERYWHERE IN BETWEEN!

With over 15,000 mapped datapoints all around the United State's coasts, we believe this isTHE most comprehensive wreck and obstruction database ever created!

If you're a scuba diver looking for an unexplored wreck or you're a fisherman looking for that great honey hole, this application will guide you in the right direction.

Features include:
- Interactive map view
- Latitude and longitude
- Depth
- Ship name
- Brief description of the history
- Year sunk
- Name search

To use the interactive map view, simply navigate the map to the desired location and click the 'Refresh View' button. The application search for and display the nearest pins dynamically (there are simply to many data point to show all at once!). NOTE: This is a change from the previous version which used to update the view automatically. That feature was causing sporadic issues and has therefore been replaced.

We appreciate any and all feedback and we're constantly working on adding new features and functions, so if you have an idea and would like to see it incorporated into Shipwreck Locator, drop us an email at

What's new in version 1.3
- Removed the auto-refresh view and added a button to refresh. This fixes the "perpetual loading icon" issues some users were reporting.
