18: Captain Greg Bounds Interview

gregbounds-600Greg Bounds is captain of the Goldhound, of the Gold Hound Treasure Divers company. Captain Bounds has worked some of the most renowned shipwreck discoveries in modern history, including the Atocha and Santa Margarita, both off Key West. Among other major finds in his career, Captain Bounds was responsible for discovering millions in treasures in a single day off the Santa Margarita. Those treasures included fine pearls, rare gold broaches, and over 30 feet of solid gold chains, all preserved for nearly 400 years in their sunken hiding spots. Bounds has spent the majority of his professional salver years as a Captain for the legendary Mel Fisher, considered the most successful sunken treasure hunter ever, before venturing out in search of his own legacy, which Bounds believes will be major discoveries from the 1715 Fleet.

Captain Bounds found 48 gold coins worth $250,000 off the Turtle Trail Beach Access in Indian River Shores, Florida.
