The structure sparked moment debate and drew crowds of diving archaeologists, media and curious hobbyists, none of whom were able to determine its identity. A squad of expert divers found that they are five subsurface archaeological sites near three offshore islands.

Professor Masaaki Kimura, a marine seismologist of the University of the Rykyus, stated that “Out a number of symbols, such as a plus sign and a V shape, that seems to indicate that human beings worked the stone and could have been made by wedge-like tools called Kusabi.”

Between 1980 and 1990, Nautical Archaeology Program at Texas A&M University in cooperation with the Institute of Nautical Archaeology (INA) and JNHT called Jamaica National Heritage Trust conducted underwater archaeological investigation of the submerged portion on Port Royal, Jamaica. Present evidence suggests that while the areas of Port Royal that lay on the boundary of the harbor slid and scrambled as they passed, the area investigated by TAMU / INA, located more or less distance from the harbor.
