“For 200 years, there’s been a lot of marine traffic in the waters off New Jersey,” including an untold number of lethal mishaps, says dive-boat operator Steve Nagiewicz of Brick Township. “So there’s a pretty good maritime history down there.”

Nagiewicz hosts one of two Web sites that serve as excellent portals to the thousands of wrecks that lie beneath the waves. Njscuba.com and njscuba.net share Cousteau-like photographs and maps and a treasure chest of information about maritime history and marine life of interest even to those who never plan to dip a toe in the surf. Nagiewicz says he gets up to ten requests a week for those needing help on homework assignments or simply fascinated with the undersea world.
