About the chapter

S.O.S Picton is a group of individuals from Picton and the surrounding areas who are passionate about our marine heritage.

Our current goal is to install proper moorings on the known wrecks in the Picton area to preserve the wrecks for future divers and history buffs who want to learn more about the ships that have sunk.

We meet virtually the second Monday of every month to catch up with each other, discuss fundraising and event ideas and to discuss our love of the wrecks.  If you’re in Picton or want to help save the marine heritage in that area join our chapter.
