NBC Today Show in Key West
The Today Show filmed with Mel Fisher’s Treasures here in Key West. Al Roker, one of the show’s hosts, dove the Atocha wreck site with Kim and Sean Fisher during a pre-show film shoot on Saturday July 25. He dove along side our treasure hunters and saw first hand the excitement that is involved in recovering treasure from the most famous shipwreck in history. During his first dive Al, with the help of a metal detector, found two Atocha silver coins! He then made a trip to Emerald City to sift for beautiful, green Columbian Emeralds that had been lost at sea since 1622 when the Atocha sank. During his two hour search he was able to uncover 3 emeralds from the site! The Today Show aired live from Key West Tueday July 28 from 7-11am on The Westin property. The live segment of the show featured approximately $7 million in treasure including the artifacts that Al found himself! Sean Fisher explained various aspects of the wreck site and provided insight into the Federal Admiralty claim the Fisher oranization has on the wreck site. He was also sure to point out that he was waiting for the boat Captains to call any time telling him they had found the other half of Atocha's cargo, the Sterncastle.
