Aresty Speaker & Shipwreck Hunter David L. Mearns Talks Finds

David L. Mearns, a USF graduate student alum and the holder of three Guinness World Records for shipwreck finding, including one of the deepest ever found, put on a spellbinding talk at the Mahaffey Theater. He and his company, Blue Water Recoveries, Ltd., are the protagonists of many shipwreck documentaries, including the British television documentary How the Bismarck Sank H.M.S. Hood.

The event began with suspense as the audience was treated to a recreation of the final moments on the Titanic.  As patrons entered the theater, the band played on!  Learn more about David Mearns.

The event was FREE and open to the public.
