Trivia

Dish TV channel descriptions categorize shows with two different plots and locations under "Treasure Quest: Snake Island:" Both involving searching for buried treasure in South America. One show actually revolves around "Snake Island," and the other searching for a cache of Jesuit treasure around and underneath the site of an ancient Jesuit mission. See more »

Disappointing
8 September 2018 | by mark0457See all my reviews

I just started watching this show from the beginning. I understand editing to make something more exciting but editing can also make something look real when it is not.

I think this series is at best a re-enactment of what happened and possibly is all made up. The "galleon" anchor is a 19th century one not 16th. We never see any artifacts in place (the Spanish coin cookies). The anthropologist, Meghan, doesn't seem to contribute anything but visual candy. She should have been able to look at the pottery shards they brought up and identify type/era and figure out the age of the wreck. Unglazed earthenware is terribly common and has been used for centuries.

There was no attempt to conserve the silver coins that were in coral matrix. The size of the anchor could be used to calculate the size of the vessel. The fact that there was a flimsy iron chain on the anchor reinforces the fact of its recent age. My guess is that a ship had to cut an anchor loose to either get away from the coast quickly or it had become wedged and couldn't be recovered.

I won't be watching the remaining episodes.
