In the 1960s, Gordon Cooper was one of NASA’s original space pioneers. While on a mission he discovered something extraordinary; a series of anomalies around the South Caribbean. These anomalies were dark patches that appeared on his photographs of the earth. He believed them to be sunken ships, including the lost fleet of Christopher Columbus.
The team behind Cooper’s Treasure well share their compelling accounts of taking part in the recovery of these ships, which includes over half a billion dollars in treasure and witnessing firsthand, the wreckage site of the RMS Titanic-1912, the Nuestra Senora de Atocha-1622, and the recovery of her sister ship, the Santa Margarita-1622.

Wednesday – Saturday: 12:00pm – 3:00pm & 5:00pm – 7:00pm,
