Response from Attendee
"I have read countless books on sunken treasure and the ships and men that carried it across the oceans. Brad and Carl make it come alive and show you first hand the academic and technical aspects of locating and examining sunken treasures. Then... they make the classroom come alive and take you out on actual Galleons and show you what they actually look like today and walk you through the history while in the water. This was a dream come true, and you will not find any like dive trips out there at this value. Brad and Carl are people you just read about in books and this was my chance to actually learn from them and dive with them over something most people will only read about. I will sign up every chance I get!" - Robert Calamia

In the next session we will discuss current techniques for locating the treasure shipwreck. The fifth session will address recovery procedures and techniques. And finally we will share how to document and preserve recoveries.
We will then take a lunch break for an hour and meet up at Capt. Slate's Scuba Adventures to hop aboard the dive boat and extend the classroom session out on to actual treasure shipwrecks from the 1733 fleet. The water in the tropical Keys is always warm and gin clear, so make sure to bring your cameras or underwater video equipment. After the interesting classroom sessions now we will extend it to exciting classroom sessions out on actual sunken treasure galleon wreck sites from the 1700's. Here we will provide and actual hands on classroom session and discussion.
After returning to the dock we will meet up at a local restaurant/bar (TBD) to regal the adventures of our day, answer any questions, and have fun. We will also issue the certificates signed by both Captain Bradley Williamson, Captain Carl Fismer and Divemaster Marc Littleton.
