    S 1 : Ep 6 - 5/8/11

    At the bottom of Lake Ontario lie two icy gravesites known as The Hamilton and The Scourge. These wooden schooners served in the War of 1812, but were victims of a violent storm that claimed the lives of 80 sailors. Two centuries later, the Dive Detectives embark on the first scientific mission to enter the wrecks in hopes of revealing why the ships sank and why so many men perished. One giant obstacle stands in their way. The site is off limits to divers. Penetrating the vessels will require a remotely operated $350,000 camera and one very steady hand.moreless

    S 1 : Ep 1 - 4/3/11

    In the fall of 1975, the Great Lakes freighter S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald sailed into a terrifying winter storm, split in two, and vanished. There were no witnesses, no survivors and, decades later, still no answers. Father-and-son diver explorers Mike and Warren Fletcher investigate the lost ship made famous by Gordon Lightfoot’s ballad, “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.” Working with naval engineers, meteorologists, and wave experts, the Fletchers uncover clues suggesting that the ships’ sinking was not the fault of the crew, but potentially a rogue wave.moreless
