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.
