The search for the lost history is more than an undersea treasure hunt, it’s a fun filled adventure with five very different divers and their erstwhile captain who want to make this treasure hunting their life’s work.
They do this by living their dream of discovering long sunken relics from the Spanish Armada off the coast of southern Spain, spanning the full length of this rich and beautiful coastline searching for clues as to where the Spanish Fleet was sunk by the British and French. There are 32 (don’t hold me to, I’m pissed and don’t remember exactly) ships sunk and very few have been found. Incredibly the team forge trusted relations with the Spanish government who has unprecedentedly given them exclusive permission to find and dive these wrecks.
The goal is to make history, have fun with mates devoted to the same purpose and change their lives to do this full time. At the end of each day, the team end with the experts discussing the day’s events or in a bar doing what English lads do best… to discuss what’s next and smash the he’ll out if it!
