"Sunken treasure, cannibalism, prison ships, Nazi submarines, the Bermuda Triangle - all are tied into the lore of shipwrecks along Florida's coasts. Here are the stories of 30 of the most interesting shipwrecks - from young Fontaneda, who was wrecked in 1545 and held captive by Indians for 17 years to the Coast Guard cutter Bibb, which was sunk off Key largo in 1987 to create an artificial reef and diving site. The Atocha, flagship of a Spanish treasure fleet, sank in a hurricane in September 1622 and was found, along with $100 million in gold and silver, by Mel Fisher in July 1985.

Each shipwreck story has a map pinpointing its location and is illustrated in a full-color painting by renowned artist William L. Trotter.
