Welcome to the South African coast, known for its diamond-rich seabed and the many hopeful sailors who seek to claim some of the precious stones for themselves. Oh right, and there's also razor-toothed sharks, armed and dangerous pirates, and ferocious waves that could swallow almost any boat.
When you think of the words “mining” and “treasure” the first images that are swirling through your head are probably of coal-covered faces, pickaxes, and shiny rocks plastered on the walls of dark caves
The ocean floor is filled with strange creatures we have yet to discover, but there's also something else lingering down there - shipwrecks. From stories as recent as the Costa Concordia to the legendary Titanic, the depths of the sea have many tales to tell when it comes to sinking ships.
"Diamond Divers" chronicles the dangerous expedition of this enterprising maritime crew as they trek halfway around the world, from Washington State to the infamous Skeleton Coast off the dangerous coast of South Africa, an area renowned for shipwrecks and legendary storms, to mine for diamonds. Meeting them in South Africa are two young, hotshot divers from Houston, TX, who will need to adjust to having to report to Captain John. They will target what is believed to be the original mouth of the Groen River, a coveted spot thought to have an untouched jackpot of diamonds hidden deep in the trenches of the ocean floor. The crew is contracted by the international company Panda Marine, a diamond mining and exploration company specializing in marine mining.
