Archaeological Discovery Ventures

Archaeological Discovery Ventures, LLC is a private, Florida-based archaeological research, location, excavation, salvage and historical preservation firm. We have been in continuous operation since 1989 and are considered one of the most successful treasure salvage operations in the country.

We are extremely discerning as to which projects we pursue and with whom we do business. As such, we do not operate elaborate corporate offices and do not take unannounced meetings. If you are interested in speaking with us about a potential project, about becoming an investor or a sponsor, please contact our Chief Financial Officer, Dr. Branon A. Edwards .

While Dr. Benilous remains the President and CEO of ADVL, he does not accept direct phone calls, emails, or requests for meetings. All communications must be directed to Dr. Edwards.

Thank you for understanding that we are extremely busy. While we appreciate that there are plenty of people who love shipwrecks, treasure, and history as much as we do, we unfortunately cannot answer all requests, emails, and messages. Please understand that we spend as much time as possible researching our projects and recovering artifacts in archaeologically sound and environmentally friendly ways.

As time permits, we will certainly respond to legitimate, serious, and relevant requests, but please do not be offended if much time elapses between your first contact and our response. We are frequently at sea and on expedition and personally review all contacts. Needless to say, that often results in delays.

Thank you for your interest and your consideration.

--The Archaeological Discovery Ventures Team
