Googling the Gulf: #2

As you can imagine, the water surrounding Florida has become a graveyard of sorts for many a shipwreck.   

In fact, scientists estimate that more than 4,000 shipwrecks are now resting on the floor of the Gulf of Mexico, casualties of centuries’ worth of shifting sands and treacherous storms.  

Since a large part of the Gulf is right over the North American Continental Shelves, the water is fairly shallow — Good news for both archeologists who want to study these vessels and adventurers who want to explore for hidden treasure!
