Who we are and what we do:
Sea Beneath Marine & Heritage is a newly formed small business, based in Bowser, BC. We provide commercial scuba diving, marine, and terrestrial archaeological services across the province. Our current HCA permitted projects are located on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. We have multiple terrestrial AIA and SAP projects in progress, with projects secured through to 2024 and beyond.
Principals and Archaeologists Rob Field and Kim Berg: As company owners, we are directly involved in every aspect of our marine and terrestrial archaeological projects from initial stakeholder liaison, through to permitting and fieldwork, analysis, final reporting, site registration, and project closure. We have over 40 years of combined archaeological project experience in all industry sectors and are eligible permit holders and field directors in all cultural areas of BC. Beyond 25 plus years in consulting archaeology, Rob’s experience as a commercial and advanced technical diver is also extensive, with more than 1200 career dives logged.
We are focused and engaged in our profession and strive to provide prompt, respectful, and quality service to the indigenous communities with whom we work, to our clients, and to the Archaeology Branch. We are both members in good standing with the BC Association of Professional Archaeologists (BCAPA), the Underwater Archaeology Society of BC (UASBC), and the Archaeological Society of British Columbia (ASBC).
Sea-Beneath is committed to working collaboratively to meet Project objectives and timelines and equally committed to the protection and conservation of First Nations’ cultural heritage. This balance allows a Project to proceed while minimizing impacts to heritage resources. Upholding these commitments requires integrity, respect, transparency, and careful consideration of stakeholder needs. We understand the big picture, strive for balanced solutions, and honor open, honest, and genuine relationships.
