In the 200 years Spanish galleons sailed to Spain laden with gold and silver, over 2000 ships went down. Only 10% of those ships have been found. Eighteen hundred treasure-laden vessels remain lost at sea. Off the coast of Florida, at the southern extremity of the Bahama Islands, there lie, under the water, sixteen Spanish galleons, their cargo holds filled with wealth undreamed of in jewels and gold. Treasure seeksers pore over old maps and shipping routes in hopes of finding wealth in the deep. In 1985, Mel Fischer and his Treasure Salvors discovered the wreck of one, The Atocha, with cargo estimated at $450 million in gold, silver and emeralds.
So, when you're next on the ocean, you might wonder if you are above such treasure!
