Contrary to the option A is indeed mentioned but not what A says, this option is basically opposite. The contrary to A lines in the passage:

When the wreckage was discovered in 2007, the archeological remains closely matched the historical record of the ship. According to anthropologist Geoffrey Conrad, "All the evidence that we find underwater is consistent with what we know from historical documentation, which is extensive."

So it is clear that historical records are actually reliable for the identification of shipwrecks. Eliminate A

While the lines:

the ship's remains, which are 70 feet offshore and under 10 feet of water, will be a no take, no-anchor cultural preserve. This arrangement protects the rich biodiversity of the surrounding reef systems.

and

including cannons and anchors that are now home to coral and other aquatic life.

Are clearly supporting B.

Thank you!
