Goofs

The story takes place in the Arctic. But the lat/long coordinates on the back of the gold bar (62°41'19"N, 164°10'38"W) are for a location in southwest Alaska, which would not be reachable by land. Later when West is locating these coordinates on his topographical map, we can see the Copper King Glacier on the map (near the lower right corner). The Copper King Glacier (56°36'0"N, 130°37'0"W) is in northern British Columbia. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
MacGyver: I was ready for a lazy week of serious scuba diving off the Grand Keys. A Spanish galleon load with treasure had gone down over 4 centuries ago, and I was gonna spend my vacation lookin' for it. But, Pete Thorton had another idea. It also involved treasure hunting, but he told me I could leave my Hawaiian shirt at home.
