With countless shipwrecks lining the ocean floor, some still undiscovered, a new docu-series premiering on DISCOVERY hopes to shed some light on some of the worst marine disasters in recent history.
Disasters at Sea takes Captain Chris Hearn, Master Mariner, on a journey recreating some of the most treacherous shipwrecks to happen in modern times. Having spent 15 years at sea Chris brings his knowledge of life as a mariner to help decipher various marine reports and the intensive investigation process.
Taking a deep dive in hopes to discover how some of these ships ended up on the ocean floor, Chris takes viewers on a journey through the history of these ships and how their maintenance over the years may have decided their fates. Though some investigations give no concrete reason for a ships sinking, the fact-based series seeks to prove and disprove theories of these real-life events.
The six-episode series promises to take viewers on a mysterious, edge-of-your-seat journey through the investigations of modern-day shipwrecks. Be sure to tune in on Tuesday, April 16 at 10 p.m. ET on DISCOVERY for the series premiere.
