Treasure Diving Workshop To Be Held In February 2016

Have you read author Robert Kurson‘s latest book, “Pirate Hunters: Treasure, Obsession And The Search For A Legendary Pirate Ship,” or’s interview with two of that book’s subjects and caught the treasure hunting bug, but don’t know how to start?

Ocean Divers in Key Largo, Florida will be offering a special workshop next February on the techniques used in treasure diving.

The three-hour workshop will cover topics like how to find a shipwreck, choosing a project, raising money for that project, and documenting and preserving anything you recover. It will feature Brad Williamson, who worked as an adviser for the movie “Fool’s Gold,” and Carl Fismer from the TV series “Treasure Divers.”

Following the workshop, participants will head out for a two-tank dive to check out the wreck sites of a pair of Spanish galleons sunk off of Key Largo.

Ocean Divers held a similar workshop earlier this month, and due to its popularity has scheduled another one for February 13, 2016.

The workshop and dives will cost US$195/178.33 Euros per person. You can sign up for them via Divers Direct here. If you need accommodations, email about discounted room rates at nearby hotels.
