In the Summer of 1700, the slave ship, Henrietta Marie, sank shortly after unloading a cargo of enslaved Africans in Jamaica. In 1972, Mel Fisher discovered its wreckage. Later researched and excavated by members of the National Association of Black Scuba Divers, the shipwreck and its artifacts have become a part of a national traveling exhibit. This tour is sponsored by General Motors. Below is the Tour Schedule for 1997 thru 1999.
