      During the American Civil War, the Confederacy commissioned ships specifically designed to beat the Union blockade of Southern ports. The Sea Hunters look for examples of this evolution in naval warfare: the Nola and Mary Celestia, blockade runners built for speed, and the Alabama, the Confederacy's deadliest raider.
    • Facing the technical challenge of finding light aluminum structures after almost 70 years under water, the Sea Hunters search for the remains of the Akron and Macon--two dirigibles that fell into the sea a continent apart in the 1930s. They represented the Navy's last experiments in deploying flying aircraft carriers.
    • The flagship of Czar Nicholas II's navy, the Russalka mysteriously vanished in 1893. Apparently defying gravity and physics, it seems to have sunk vertically and now stands upright in the ice-cold waters off Estonia. The Sea Hunters explore this odd wreck, perhaps the best-preserved example of a sunken ironclad.
    • Laden with artistic masterpieces bound for the Russian empress's collection, the Vrouw Maria sank in 1771 and now lies almost perfectly preserved on the Baltic seabed. Working with the Maritime Museum of Finland, the Sea Hunters attempt to answer key questions: Did the paintings survive? And are they salvageable?

      Immortalized by the bestseller and hit movie The Perfect Storm, the swordfishing boat Andrea Gail sank somewhere in the North Atlantic in the monstrous meteorological confluence of 1991. The Sea Hunters try to provide closure for the crew's friends and family by probing a fabled ships' graveyard for the boat's remains.moreless

      On April 15, 1912, the passenger liner RMS Carpathia bravely raced through ice-choked waters to save the survivors of the Titanic. Sunk by a German U-boat six years later, it might still lie somewhere off the Irish coast. The Sea Hunters aim to find its final resting place.
