Dive on the wrecks


2 wrecks : Adventure Galley and Serapis

Adventure Galley Captain Kidd’s english vessel, fitted with 36 cannons and 70 men. It gone to Indian Ocean for an assignement of upstanding privateer. Money lacking for his assignement, Kidd decid to attack french and pirate’s vessel and raised a fortune. He will be hanged in London above the River Thames, his body lay instate of seafarers to deter them from following such a path. Kidd’s legend is such more important that a story says that his treasure is hidden somewhere between United States and Canada. Deeply damaged by attacks, it was until the stop in Sainte Marie in 1698 that Kidd voluntary decided to sink Adventure Galley to leave with a new one. American archeolog Barry Clifford and his team organized 3 shipments to Sainte Marie between 1999 to 2000, and discovered five vessels wreck : Flery Dragon, requested by the pirate « Billy One Hand » and Adventure Galley. The three other explored sites was Ruparrel, Mocha Frigate and New Soldado. Diggins were focused on Adventure Galley and a new expedition was organized in 2010. The team stay at Princesse Bora Lodge and Spa and Fifou’s contribution will be valuable for organisation. Barry Clifford is known like the « United State’s Nicolas Hulot » since 70’s. He participated to many wreck discoveries which have allowed to advance pirate’s knownlegde. He works nowadays on the Santa maria’s wreck, Christoph Colomb’s vessel. The team hope that one day they can create a piratery museum in Sainte Marie with discovered’s relics.
