Ship salvor and underwater superstar Barry Clifford’s done it again; the most prolific man in the history of shipwreck seeking believes he’s got confirmation that he just found Christopher Columbus’ flagship, the Santa Maria.
Clifford’s search for the ship has lasted over ten years; the Cape Cod native first identified the shipwreck in 2004 as potentially Columbus’ – this from aerial and UAV photos of the ocean floor near Haiti – as part of the Discovery Channel’s “Quest for Columbus” program. Now he’s back with funding from the History Channel, and we expect the same methodical, careful salvage operation and historic preservation that Clifford has built his career on as he starts bringing America, Spain, and Italy’s history to the surface.
