Side scan sonar works like an underwater radar and is the best tool in existence for locating submerged items as small as a 5 gallon bucket. Regardless of visibility in the water the sound pulses penetrates hundreds of meters to each side of the sonar tow fish. An incredibly accurate and high-resolution picture of the seabed and any objects lying upon it is displayed on a computer screen. Massive areas can quickly and efficiently be surveyed.


GPSCharts has been providing hydrographic and geophysical survey services for more than 20 years.
Through the use of Side-Scan Imagery and Underwater video we offer the service of Professional underwater artifact location and recovery. For objects as small as a five gallon pail to boats, motors, pilings, cars, trucks, and our least favorite, Persons.
