a visit with a 360 video of the San Jose 1733 Fleet Wreck cannon now a mini artificial reef 🐠🐟
Because San José sank in 30 feet of water, little of her general cargo was recovered in the efforts of divers to save most of the silver coinage on board. Since no portion of the hull remained above the waterline after salvage, San José was not set afire like other wrecks. The wreckage of San José eventually became buried under the sand until 1968 when treasure hunters located some large magnetic anomalies with a magnetometer in 35 feet of water off Tavernier Key. At first, no evidence of the ship was visible on the bottom, but excavation through grass and sand turned up ballast and timbers. For several years they worked on the wreck, exposing a ballast pile 135 feet long, 40 feet wide, and six feet high in some places. At least 23 cannons lay strewn over the site. Two anchors were found on the eastern edge of the wreckage. Some 200 yards to the south, where San José must have originally struck the bottom, they discovered the ship's 25-foot long rudder. Modern salvage of the wreck produced many interesting artifacts, along with inevitable legal disputes.
