Where to Find Sunken Treasure
To locate sunken ships and read stories about lost treasures waiting to be found, check out the International Registry of Sunken Ships. They have a database which currently includes 113,210 “wrecks” worldwide.
While you have to pay a small fee for detailed reports relating to whichever state or country you’re interested in, there is a lot of free information too. For example, if you click on the “Treasure Stories” link, you can read about a wide variety of treasures still waiting to be uncovered.
If you want a report that is strictly on treasure ships, be sure to let them know. Otherwise you’ll get a complete list of sunken ships including fishing boats and cargo freighters. On the other hand, you might find some unexpectedly-interesting items on these ships as well.
