Many books on scuba diving/maritime disasters have been published over the course of time, almost since the beginning of the scuba era. The Scuba News Canada will post these “nostalgia” books considered a “blast from the past” on a regular basis, and we want you, our readers, to make suggestions of “older nostalgia diving books” you have enjoyed, or believe our readers will. We will publish it and add your social media/website link to the article if you send us the proposal. Contact us.

Captain Robert MacKinnon, a world-renowned diver and treasure hunter, has reclaimed sunken caches from the dangerous shallow waters off Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, for more than four decades. The Death Coast is known for its treacherous reefs and raging currents, and its rocky bottom is layered with shipwrecks and untold riches.

Robert MacKinnon’s Treasure Hunter recounts the risks and challenges—both nautical and legal—of exploring shipwrecks dating back to the War of 1812 and before the Revolutionary War. MacKinnon vividly captures the excitement of discovery and conveys his passion for preservation in the still-developing field of underwater archaeology as he salvages the secrets of the sea.

Treasure Hunter is a fascinating voyage into an amazing undersea world. It is a compelling chronicle of modern-day adventure.

In short—a treasure hunter’s paradise.

Treasure Hunter was originally published in 2013 and is available on Amazon in Kindle, Paperback, and Hardcopy formats.
