Robert C. “Bob” Moran worked with famed treasure hunter Mel Fisher for over 20 years. He was the Exec. V. P. and sea-borne operations manager in the early 1980's prior to the discovery of the rich Spanish shipwrecks Atocha and Santa Margarita.
Captain Moran did the electronic magnetometer and side scan sonar search with his boat the "Plus Ultra" and flew his Grumman Widgeon amphibian seaplane and Piper Twin Comanche in air support for the search and recovery operations.
Bob is now retired and living in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
This is the true story of the incredible adventures of one man that led him to be part of the richest Spanish treasure finds in the history of the New World. It's estimated that the total value of the 1715 and the 1622 Spanish Fleet treasure recoveries could approach $800 million dollars and more is still being found by the divers today.
