When the Museum opens, we will be installing an exhibit of underwater photography: “Shipwrecks of the Outer Banks: A Diver’s View” by Marc Corbett that will run through March 2021.
Corbett is a shipwreck researcher, writer, scuba diver, and underwater photographer. He’s lived on the Outer Banks of North Carolina since 1994. Corbett also is an avid surfer and skateboarder. Combining a love for history and diving, he dedicates himself to hunting and identifying shipwrecks, and researching and exploring wrecks in shallow and deep water. To date, he has identified five shipwrecks. Corbett has spent the last ten years researching Outer Banks wrecks. The work will culminate in a book on nearshore shipwrecks.
Corbett is a regular speaker at the museum and takes part annually in the Underwater Heritage Symposium that the museum holds annually on the first Saturday in April. He has a BS in Biology from Virginia Commonwealth University and is a carpenter by trade. He also works on the dive boats Lion’s Paw and Under Pressure out of Hatteras inlet.
We look forward to unveiling his exhibit at the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum. In the meantime, enjoy these images from his portfolio of southern Outer Banks wrecks.
