View video footage captured by the Little Hercules remotely operated vehicle (ROV) and camera platform during the April 26, 2012, ROV dive from NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer during the Gulf of Mexico Expedition 2012.

The dive was conducted at site 15577 -- a recently mapped but never-before-seen shipwreck in the western Gulf of Mexico. The dive revealed the remnants of a copper-sheathed sailing ship, likely from the early to mid-19th century. While most of the wood has since disintegrated, the oxidized copper sheathing remained along with a variety of artifacts. These included plates, glass bottles, guns, cannons, the ship's stove, navigational instruments, and anchors. This was a spectacular dive that represented a truly remarkable find.
