Our photo gallery depicts some of the highest quality images of treasures recovered from Spanish galleons lost in Florida waters. These photos were taken by Dr. John de Bry, who is director of the non-profit Center for Historical Archaeology in Melbourne, Florida. Dr. de Bry has extensive experience in photographing artifacts recovered from Spanish shipwrecks.

I’m so happy to see these images here. My Grandfather is the late Art Hartman, who was integral is bringing up the Maravillas, as well as the 1715 Fleet. I, actually, have originals of these very photos in my hands right now; I was looking through them as I am packing to move. It appears that I have some photos that you either don’t have or haven’t posted. These images make my heart happy. Thank you for sharing them with the world!
