Everyone loves a treasure hunt, but did you know only a small percentage of people in the world have ever found real buried or sunken treasure? Now, you can learn how! The author shares firsthand experiences of the trials and jubilations of recovering an ancient shipwreck that sank in 1660 just off the coast of Jupiter, Florida. We all have a sense of curiosity and a call to explore. Many readers know of the great undersea explorers of all time, Jacques Cousteau and Mel Fisher, with their quests for sunken treasure worth tens of millions of dollars. Now more than ever, explorers need to know and understand that they can indeed find and recover their own treasures, many of which are still out there waiting to be found. Chock full of large photographs; includes an educational glossary "This is a good layman's account of the equipment and procedures for underwater shipwreck salvage, applicable both to the underwater archaeologist and the treasure hunter, although the latter are a dying breed." . . . Dr. Ray McAllister, Professor Emeritus, Ocean Engineering

Then one day, his life changed forever. Two surfers had told a local lifeguard about a cannon and an anchor that stuck out of the sand in only ten feet of water. The lifeguard asked Captain Dom for his help and advice.
This could be an ancient shipwreck! the captain thought. His journey had begun.
Captain Dom was appointed the first federal substitute custodian of the abandoned shipwreck site. Later, the court substituted Jupiter Wreck Inc. (JWI), a newly formed Florida corporation, for Captain Dom's name.
At that time, neither the lifeguard nor Captain Dom knew that the discovery laws would undergo a major change and play a large part in the rules affecting the future rights of others who researched and recovered historic shipwrecks. With the change in laws, the captain became the last person who could "stake his claim" on a shipwreck in the state of Florida.
