Armed with the latest underwater technology, driven by boundless curiosity and steeled with courage, the DEEP SEA DETECTIVES travel the globe to visit long-lost shipwrecks and other enticing treasures of the deep. With their incredible expertise and experience, John Chatterton and the other Detectives bring tales to the surface that have been submerged for generations.
Settled 2,500 years ago, Nan Madol is a living memorial to the prehistoric Micronesians--and an abiding mystery. 100-foot high basalt structures rise from the deep to form artificial islands. Far below the surface, underwater tunnels filled with untold riches and ancient artifacts are rumored to connect this complex. But how did the Micronesians build this imposing fortress? Where did they quarry raw materials? Do the tunnels exist? And can we find them? Join veteran divers John Chatterton and Richie Kohler as they investigate this underwater mystery.
