Research and recovery of historic shipwrecks experts Seafarer Exploration Corporation says that Seafarer's Quest, LLC has successfully been granted a three year research permit for the shipwreck site south of Cape Canaveral from the Florida Bureau of Archaeology Research.

"We are so excited about this site!" exclaimed Kyle Kennedy, CEO of Seafarer. "The complexities of this particular permit dictated a much longer time horizon, but hopefully good things come to those who wait. The long awaited issuance of this permit allows Seafarer to begin the investigation, research and archaeological excavation of this very exciting historical site. There have already been several artifacts discovered, some solid silver and a pistol with a visible date of 1709 and the name of the maker," he added.

Previous research of this area produced artifacts of significant importance that led well known archaeologists to believe there is an 18th century historical shipwreck in this vicinity. "These artifacts are currently being held by the State of Florida and will be pictured on our website. In addition, video of the underwater work being done at the Juno Beach site has been added to the website as well," stated Mr. Kennedy.

"We are extremely thrilled to get started on this third site. Weather permitting, work will begin immediately. The site will require a lot of work, time, and testing to further understand the characteristics and difficulties of this particular site," added Mr. Kennedy.

Furthermore," Mr. Kennedy continued, "Seafarer Exploration wants to personally thank the Florida State officials and employees for their help and guidance throughout this process. We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to Director and State Historic Preservation Officer, Robert Bendus, and Bureau Chief and State Archaeologist Dr. Mary Glowacki for their timeless commitment to responsible archaeological preservation and for working with us to ensure all issues were properly handled."

"Seafarer is strongly committed to using proper archaeological techniques because it is important to preserve the historical and archaeological integrity of the site. We commit ourselves to making sure their trust in our company is warranted."
