  • A museum completely dedicated to the the amazing recovery of ocean treasures. The men who conduct the dangerous snd complicated operations are often there to share their incredible adventures. Countless examples of coins, pottery, cannons, and video examples of the actual recovery ship! A most exciting place for adults and children! No fee required but well deserved donations accepted. Worth it!
  • Very knowledgeable and friendly. A lot of interesting things
  • I enjoyed the place and cool but I encountered one person who is not in mood.
  • Really enjoyed the tour. Lot of great history.
  • Small but very informative
