Seafarer intends to attempt to renew its permit with the State of Florida to explore and recover a wreck site located just off Juno Beach, Florida that has already yielded several interesting artifacts. Based on artifacts recovered to date, management believes and theorizes that the wreck may be a sunken Spanish ship dating to the late 1500s. It is historical fact that several of the Spanish Galleons which sunk between 1500 and the 1790s carried passengers, crew, livestock, unique tools and treasure in the form of dated coins, gold, silver, and emeralds.
There is however, a great deal of additional exploration and documentation that will be needed to confirm the type of ship, its country of origin and whether or not it was carrying any valuable cargo. It also unknown at this time whether or not this particular shipwreck is entirely located on this site or if it broke up and is scattered over a wider area, including outside of Seafarer’s permitted area.
