What my readers havae to say

Dr. Ray McAllister, Professor Emeritus


This is a good layman's account of the equipment and procedures for underwater shipwreck salvage, applicable both to the underwater archaeologist and the treasure hunter, although the latter are a dying breed."

"I found “Treasure Diving with Captain Dom” to be a very interesting and entertaining book. The author takes you through some of the history behind the ships and shipwrecks, describes in plain language, vessel types and the kinds of cargos, explains how the wreck hunter performs his research, and the tools he uses to find them. The book is an easy read with large print and lots of photos, including many underwater shots. This book will be enjoyed by adventurers of all ages!"

This year, diver Yvonne Addario reported recovering over 500 coins from a 1600's shipwreck in Jupiter, Florida. In her latest book, she shares the experience in an effort to draw younger undersea explorers to begin the quest for sunken treasure. "Now more than ever, explorers need to know and understand that they can indeed find and recover their own treasures." Addario writes.

"The thrill of a treasure hunt! I found this book to be an eye-opener to the world of undersea exploration and treasure hunting in Florida waters. Captain Dom and his author wife Yvonne Addario have written a very informative "how to" treasure dive book. I absolutely enjoyed reading this book!"

"This book explains the basics of treasure diving through the experience of a modern day pioneer who found treasure off the coast of Florida. His love of the sea and history brought him good fortune, but more importantly, a productive quest for innovative techniques so that others can enjoy treasure hunting. After reading this book, I feel that it is possible for anyone to stumble upon their own little piece of treasure--be it historic, a natural phenomenon, or gold coins. I moved to Florida three years ago, and have grown to love the ocean. I have taken up fishing, boating, sailing, snorkeling, surfing, and now look forward to dive lessons this summer. This is the only book that I have found that explains in easy terms the basics and background for treasure diving. My husband and I are excited to begin exploration. What an inspiration!"

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book!, April 20, 2008



"Personally I think the Second Edition of Treasure Diving With Captain Dom - Special Archival Section has more for your money in content. Both first and second editions are well written in easy to understand language. I found both books very informative with beautiful color photos. The glossy stock which is used in the second edition as opposed to the mat finish paper stock used in the first edition are more vivid and clearly printed on . The second edition has 4 more pages and is priced more moderately. All and all, the second edition is a better value. Treasure Diving With Captain Dom is a wonderful book for both young and old alike. Captain Dom inspires all of us to follow our dreams."
