"Sunken Treasure.... No words in the language hold more magic. Who hasn’t dreamed, some time or other, of diving into one of the lost galleons of the Spanish Main loaded with precious cargo of gold and silver. Millions......no, billions of dollars worth of treasure lies at the bottom of the sea buried beneath the coral of centuries.” Sir Arthur C. Clarke.


 With over 30 years of treasure search and salvage experience, Captain Carl Fismer is one of the most respected and knowledgeable diving professionals in the world. His specialty is shipwrecks...especially Spanish shipwrecks. During his career, he has worked over 300 shipwrecks in the United States, Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, the Indian Ocean and Central and South America. He has recovered millions of dollars in Spanish gold, silver, jewels and other artifacts. "Fizz”, as he is known to friends, directed part of the salvage diving of the Santa Margarita, sister ship to the Nuestra Senora de Atocha which was discovered by Mel Fisher. Then in 1986, he led an expedition to the Silver Shoals in the Dominican Republic, and there located the famed galleon, Concepcion which sank during a hurricane in 1641. In 1992, he traveled to Sri Lanka and dived with Sir Arthur C. Clarke of 2001: A Space Odyssey fame, in association with the Great Basses Reef Treasures.  Listed below are some of the major wrecks Carl has worked on.
