Late one night, off the coast of Ecuador, the Capitana hits a reef and begins to sink. Aboard his own ship Padre Rivadeneira watches in horror. A year later, still attempting to travel to Spain, he boards the 900-ton galleon Maravillas at Cartagena. In a freak collision the ship is lost on the wild shoals of Los Mimbres, Bahamas. Lost also are 600 people and five million pesos in treasure. Unable to swim, the padre clings for his life to a floating hatch cover. He is one of only 45 survivors. 300 years later, Dave Horner discovered Padre Rivadeneira’s diary.

In 1996 and 1997, Horner and his colleagues discovered and salvaged the much sought-after treasure of the Capitana. SHIPWRECK is an authentic retelling of the padre’s story and the modern-day exploration of shipwrecks sites.
