Shipwrecked: North of Forty is a window into the fascinating undersea world of a career treasure hunter. Capt. Robert MacKinnon, professional diver and maritime salvor, takes you along with him into the waters off mainland Nova Scotia, Cape Breton and New England to the final resting place of hundreds of colonial era ships, some having wrecked on our shores as far back as the 1500s. You will experience with him the anticipation of finding treasure lost for hundreds of years and the excitement of finding a Spanish galleon that was never even recorded. Share the thrill of finding precious gems and ornate china, or picking up a 'pine tree shilling' dated 1652, one of the first coins to be minted in the English Americas. Capt. MacKinnon expertly relates the history of many of the tragic maritime events that took place along our shores, then vividly relates his own personal story of finding these shipwrecks and their treasures.
