Tampa, FL – – The Florida Aquarium is excited to partner with the State of Florida and the U.S. Navy on the proposed creation of an underwater park on the wreck site of a Civil War ship, the USS Narcissus. The archaeological preserve will be Florida’s twelfth, but marks the first time the U.S. Navy has allowed one of its vessels to be recognized in this way.

“People who visit the wreck will be amazed to see what’s still down there after 150 years,” said
