Our Story

After years of searching, underwater explorer Barry Clifford and our project team made world headlines with the discovery of the pirate ship Whydah.

Wrecked in a storm off Cape Cod in 1717, the Whydah is the only pirate shipwreck ever found, and her treasures are still being archaeologically recovered. With the discovery of over two hundred thousand artifacts including sixty cannon, over ten thousand coins, 400 pieces of Akan gold jewelry, and much more - our project has completely revised the world’s understanding of pirates.
