Juno Beach, Florida
On November 14, 2017 Seafarer was granted a full admiralty judgement for exclusive rights for recovery of artifacts from a shipwreck site in 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 English, French, or Spanish ship dating to the late 1500s. It is historical fact that several of the English, French, and 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. Seafarer has identified a significant number of artifacts on the site, which suggest a mid 1500’s Spanish wreck.
On July 19, 2021 Seafarer announced that it had received correspondence from the Florida Division of Historical Resources conceding that they did not have the authority to permit or deny recovery activities on the Juno Beach Shipwreck site.
