5. Consolacion Shipwreck
Pirates wreaked so much havoc in on the seas, they could actually make their enemies sink their own boats. In August of 1680 a ship called the Consolacion sunk off the coast of Ecuador. The galleon was encountered by a group of English pirates, after it had picked up a large amount of gold from Lima, Peru. Before Pirates could get their hands on some of the treasures they were seeking the Spanish, set the ship on fire. They’d rather have the boat at the bottom of the sea then hand it over. A crew of explorer eventually salvaged the wreck in 1997 near the Santa Clara Island of Ecuador. Large amounts of gold and silver coins were uncovered and are even on sale online.

4. Montego Bay Pirate Treasure
Montego Bay located on the island of Jamaica is an infamous place where pirates commonly lurked so it made for an excellent location to search for pirate treasures! A group of American treasure hunters set sail in the jamaican waters hoping to snatch some booty. The 17th century English vessel named the Manticore, was badly damaged and found in international waters just outside the Jamaican border limit. One of the scuba swimmers, Rick Miller, describes it as being an amazing experience, with gold and silver everywhere! Treasure’s one could only dream of! Just the weight of the precious metals alone is worth 187 million dollars.

3. Black Beard’s Ship in North Carolina
In 1966, a an important piece of history was brought to the surface with the help from underwater divers off the coast of Beaufort, North Carolina. The vessel of, Queen Anne’s Revenge finally saw the light of day once again. This time, the boat came from Blackbeard himself and it is a true miracle this artifact from the past was brought to surface. They came across the heavy cannons, some weighing 2000 pounds each. 30 cannons were found total. Each cannonball that was fired, weighed at least 6 pounds. More than 280,000 rare historical facts were found. This pirate met Davy Jones locker in a gruesome fashion. British soldiers displayed is severed head on the ship where he was executed as a warning to pirates. That’s just a pirate’s life for you. This replica is what it possibly would have looked like at full strength and would have struck fear in any sailors heart! His flag was also gruesome.

2. Pirates Hand
While doing a little bit of cleaning, a Florida couple in Tampa Bay were going through their attic when they came across a startling discovery. In the attic was a wooden box with a treasure map. Spanish coins and the strangest of all; a severed hand with a ring on it! Could these be some artifacts left from the legendary Jose Gaspar, a legendary Spanish pirate who would sail off the west coast of Florida, although it’s still a mystery of whether he even existed at all. Before you start jumping to conclusions, the authenticity is hard to prove. Pirates weren’t too well-known for openly documenting their every move. The Tampa Bay History curator, told WFLA news that he believed the coins are too thin to be authentic. And who knows if that hand thing is even real?! Is this finding a morbid hoax or possibly an unbelievable pirate hoax?

1. The Whydah Discovery
The Whydah was a British slave ship that was originally captured by “Black Sam” and was found off the coast of Cape Cod in Massachusetts in 1984 by Barry Clifford. He actually credits a pirate treasure map that many discredited as being false. It seems to be the holy grail of pirate discoveries! Priceless artifacts were discovered including 200,000 individual pieces were received under only 14 feet of water. Rare gold and silver coins, gold jewelry and artifacts, cannons, sword handles and even a boy’s leg! The boat is believed to carry the plunder of 10 ships. Spanish Galleons were relentless looted by Black Sam until him and his crew were swept away by a strong storm in 1717. Divers pulled together huge clumps of gold coin masses that stuck together from years of being underwater. A museum exhibition called “Real Pirates: The Untold Story of the Whydah, from Slave Ship to Pirate Ship”, toured the United States. Barry believes there is more treasure out there from this wreck.

  8. party spirits on July 29, 2023 at 1:02 pm

    Number 3 is not correct, blackbeard’s ship was found in 1996 not 1966

  9. Freedom Works on July 29, 2023 at 1:05 pm

    Its like the real pirates of the Caribbean in Disneyland

  10. Gallabatorix on July 29, 2023 at 1:07 pm

    The queen Anne’s revenge was not discovered in 1966 it was dicovered by intersal inc. November 21 1996 . Are you too lazy to even do a Google search for correct information. 30 years is more than a minor mistake…. especially since it takes less than 30 seconds to get the correct info .

    The history, of individual, British persons, indicates, that, they were demonized. In fact, the religion, of Western Europeans, was Demon Worship..Jesus, is a demon. Christianity, is the worship, of Satan.

    Stay in school kids, or one day you might be terribly narrating bad historical videos on YouTube at a rate of 15 mistakes per minute, thus revealing your dumbness globally to a lot of people. Who made the mistake of watching it.

    "Could we be looking into the face of a pirate?" Or, maybe the face of a (future) politician?

  29. Auddie Pryce on July 29, 2023 at 1:32 pm

    A slave took most of Black Sam gold and it was taken from them

  32. babyrazor on July 29, 2023 at 1:32 pm

    That story, the #1, when they pulled up the cannons they found that some had the bore seal with lead. The supposition being that these were used as safes for valuables. However the contents, if any, were never revealed.

  33. DravenDank on July 29, 2023 at 1:34 pm

  41. BS fishing on July 29, 2023 at 1:44 pm

    Fishing weights I don’t think that they use fishing gear I mean I definitely would have if they have the technology in that time but I’m not sure they had lead making materials I mean nothing I knew was made of lead

  42. Janet Rooney on July 29, 2023 at 1:45 pm

    Also to note captain Kidd was also a masonic grand master who built a lot of old NYC including the trinity church where several of his fellow freemasons are buried, also good to note is the use of skull and crossbones in freemasonry is the same as pirates including Blackbeard (Edward Teach). Different styles of the flag correspond with the various lodges of the Scottish rite

  43. Jamie Palmer on July 29, 2023 at 1:46 pm

    He wasn’t executed being executed is like being lined up put on your knees and shot or hung or put in a electric chair. He died in a battle on a ship where he was shot 3 times and stabbed multiple times while killing and fighting a captain
