USNS San Miguel 3D Model
On August 3, 2015, a four person maritime archaeology team began searching for the shipwreck site using towboard and drift dive surveys in the area where the Mission San Miguel was reported lost. After thoughtfully planned search and survey, the team identified one substantial and largely intact portion of the vessel, as well as numerous concentrations of disarticulated wreckage scattered over a relatively discreet area. At 523 feet, this is the largest ship reported lost in PMNM, and an interesting glimpse at one of the World War II era workhorse vessels of the United States Navy with a history that reflects the frantic pace of wartime shipbuilding efforts and role that petroleum played in military strategy.
