9780974341422: A Guide to Responsible Undersea Exploration

A Guide to Responsible Undersea Exploration was written to help educate divers who may happen upon what they believe to be undiscovered treasure or artifacts. It is not just university-trained archeologists that make discoveries; it is everyday people like you that may happen across wondrous events that were hitherto lost in time. The proper documentation of your find gives it meaning and historical context. This book tells you how. The author arms you with the tools and knowledge to proceed into areas of the unknown where true explorers may find themselves.

About the Author:

Captain Dominic Addario is the original principle investigator and project director of the Jupiter Historic Ship Wreck Exploration. Captain Dom is an Explorer and seafaring New Englander. Born and raised in the North Shore area. He is now literally diving into history off the treasure coast in South Florida. His expedition s goal is to research the identity and to document the loss of a hitherto, unidentified and unknown ship that foundered off Jupiter Inlet in 1660. This ship appears to be of Spanish Origin and laden with King Philip the IV s Treasure. In the mid 1990s Captain Addario opened an Authorized PADI Dive Center specializing in diver training and undersea exploration of the near shore environment at the Jupiter Beach Resort, located 200 yards from the Jupiter Shipwreck site. He initiated a PADI authorized Distinctive Specialty Diver Training Course surrounding underwater artifact identification and tools of the trade using the scatter pattern of the Jupiter Shipwreck site as an example. Many resort dive store instructors and dive training facility operators have requested, after the publication of Treasure Diving with Captain Dom, that he write a training manual, so that they may educate their clientele pragmatically about the wonders of undersea exploration and how to proceed responsibly when they encounter and or discover objects of interest that may lead to hitherto undiscovered or unrecorded events.

Review:

In A Guide to Undersea Exploration, Dom Addario shares his enthusiasm for shipwrecks, diving, and exploration of the unknown. He discusses the techniques and science he has personally used to successfully document wreck sites and preserve artifacts. At the same time, he also addresses modern issues like responsibility, conservation, the law, and ethics. With all the pictures of coins and artifacts, divers will find this book inspiring. --John Chatterton Professional Diver ( Shaddow Divers)

Finally, a book that reveals that there is more to treasure hunting than silver, gold and finders keepers. It s nice to hear from first-hand experiences of someone who has taken on the State of Florida (and won). The author writes of the less glorious parts of treasure salvage such as costs, permits, salvage techniques and more importantly, ethics morals and safety issues. This book is testimony to the fact that locating treasure is just the beginning. --Sean Loughman Undersea Explorer and President of The Pirates Chest - premier seller of undersea treasures - St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands
