Receipt of permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers clears way for excavation on the historic Lantana Beach shipwreck.

In addition, the company has also received  an underwater easement agreement from the Board of Trustees of the Internal Improvement Trust Fund.

The permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, a five-year approval ending on June 18th, 2018, represents the last step in Seafarer's quest to excavate the shipwreck site.

The site has recently been surveyed using a Geometrics 882 Cesium Vapor Magnetometer and this survey work showed compelling evidence that a large part of the ship lies buried in a relatively compacted area.  Having completed phase I of the mapping survey and underwater video, Seafarer is now beginning phase II known as digging and identifying the wreck. Items found and documented on this site in past explorations by third parties suggest the wreck might be a French or Spanish ship from the late 1600s. However it will require significantly more work and time to determine what is actually contained on the site.
