The fascinating, unbelievable story behind Barry Clifford’s discovery of the long-lost treasure ship— the Adventure Galley—of the world’s most fabled pirate, Captain Kidd.

With larceny in his heart, Captain William Kidd and a band of pirates sailed to the Indian Ocean on the Adventure Galley, a ship built specially for piracy. But months later, Kidd found himself with a ship on the verge of sinking, and his crew members threatening mutiny.

With the Adventure Galley filling rapidly with water, Kidd ordered her to the tiny island of Sainte Marie off the coast of Madagascar. Soon thereafter, Kidd’s beloved ship sank in the harbor, disappearing beneath the waves never to be seen again…Until 302 years later, when undersea explorer Barry Clifford arrived to uncover the ship’s secrets.

Barry Clifford is an undersea explorer who discovered and excavated the Whydah, the first pirate shipwreck ever authenticated, off the coast of Cape Cod. He established the Expedition Whydah Sea Lab and Learning Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts, where he also owns and operates a pirate museum.



Paul Perry is an internationally bestselling author who has co-written nine books on near-death experiences.
