Overview

Together with best-selling author Clive Cussler, James Delgado hosts an international television series, The Sea Hunters, that takes viewers along on dives to discover and explore famous shipwrecks. The dramatic stories in this book are based on Sea Hunters episodes and on Delgado's own underwater explorations. The shipwrecks are situated around the world, the most famous being Titanic, 2 1/4 miles beneath the surface. Especially intriguing is Vrouw Maria, which sank in 1771, carrying a secret, precious cargo of art belonging to Catherine the Great. The oldest wreck is from the year 1281, one of the hundreds of warships from the fleet that Kublai Khan sent to invade Japan.

One astonishing discovery is the wreck of a forgotten Civil War submarine that somehow ended up in Panama. Even more unusual, and harrowing, is the story of diving into the flooded tunnels of an underground concentration camp, where prisoners were forced to assemble the infamous v-2 rockets fired on Britain. Diving on the warships sunk by atomic bomb tests at Bikini Atoll is a chilling experience, and the dives at Pearl Harbor, a tragic battlefield and sacred graveyard, are heartrending. In describing these and many other shipwrecks, Delgado offers a spellbinding and fascinating combination of history, archeology and the adventure of diving. He brings to life the story of each ship and the people connected with it, recounting both the events of the sinking and the search for the wreck. Then Delgado takes readers on thrilling, you-are-there descriptions of the dives themselves.

    A reviewer

    This book wouldn't be so disappointing if the title wasn't so misleading. What adventure? The author discovers nothing new and takes no risks. Sea Hunter? He is merely making visits to previously discovered shipwreck sites and gives his assessments. So what. For true adventure try any book by Robert Marx. And please, why must we always be told that tired old bureaucratic 'shipwrecks are sacred gravesites'. They are accident scenes, just like plane crash sites.

    Please read

    Pro-his dives are awesome
    Con-he describes first person acounts of the ship wrecking so its VERY graphical (EX: one persons skin melts off)
    Con: chapter eleven isnt about shipwrecks, its about how Hitler forced people into slavery and making them build a rocket, and its pretty much all about him and his cruelty :(
