Hidden deep beneath the sea lies the wreckage of mighty war machines, each with untold stories of battles, glory and demise. Join us on the hunt for these antiques of the deep, and unlock the mysteries and the history waiting on the ocean floor. Each episode of QUEST FOR SUNKEN WARSHIPS features authentic historical footage, CGI illustrations and archival materials of the battles being investigated, along with high-resolution underwater images and live-action, on-site explorations of the sunken wrecks by our team of courageous divers.

[edit] Torpedo Alley

In 1942 German U-boats turned the waters off Cape Hatteras North Carolina into a sea of death. For six months the marauding U-boats patrolled the area unchallenged, sinking countless ships that littered the ocean and beaches with oil, cargo and bodies.

[edit] Operation Hailstone

In February 1944, the World War II tides are turning as the U.S. makes steady inroads against the Japanese in the South Pacific. But hiding among the islands is Truk; a self-contained fortress with a deep lagoon, high islands and circling barrier reef.

[edit] USS Oriskany

The massive aircraft carrier rests in 212 feet of water in a north-south orientation on the sandy bottom. With an overall height of 151 feet, there is plenty of ship to view within recreational dive limits.

[edit] USS Murphy

A team of divers set out to examine what they thought was a sunken supply ship. They find the hull of a World War II United States Navy Destroyer instead. They've also found a mystery because according to Navy records the USS Murphy never sank.
