Odyssey Marine Exploration, Inc. and Discovery Times Square invite you to travel beneath the surface and explore SHIPWRECK! Pirates & Treasure, an interactive, multi-media exhibit containing more than 500 artifacts from deep-ocean expeditions around the world. This not to be missed exhibit brings the world's most amazing deep-sea discoveries to the crossroads of the world at New York City's Discovery Times Square.

If you plan on visiting New York City or live in the tri-state area, you should bring your family to this wonderful exhibit. Children ages five and up will be fascinated with all the original artifacts from actual shipwrecks!

With the help of Odyssey's unparalleled deep-sea archaeological and technological capabilities, SHIPWRECK! offers visitors a unique look into the depths of the ocean through a mix of actual historical artifacts and hands-on, interactive computer games and exhibits. Artifacts found at the exhibit, such as rare bottles, porcelain figurines, and a 300-year-old carpenter's folding ruler, will transport visitors back in time as they get an up close and personal look at over 2,000 years of nautical history. Treasure seekers will find a stunning collection of gold and silver recovered from the deep, including the first ever display of silver recovered from the SS Gairsoppa over three miles deep.

"We're really excited about bringing SHIPWRECK! to Discovery Times Square in New York City. During the past 20 years, our team has discovered hundreds of shipwrecks in the deep ocean ranging from 2,000 year old Roman wrecks to WWII U-boats, and last year set a world record by recovering over 40 tons of silver from a shipwreck nearly three miles deep. One of our company's goals is to share our amazing work in the deep ocean with the general public and Discovery Times Square is a premiere venue.  SHIPWRECK! allows visitors to get up close and personal with the artifacts we've discovered and to learn about the team, tools and technology necessary to explore the deep ocean," said Greg Stemm, Odyssey Chief Executive Officer.

One of the highlights for the children is the hurricane simulator! They can feel what it is like to sustain 75 mile per hour winds. They will want to do it again and again.

    Greg Stemm, the co-founder and current CEO of Odyssey. Marine Exploration, and John C. Morris, the co-founder of Odyssey Marine Exploration, were both sued by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

    It appears that Neptune Minerals is insolvent.

    Oceanica is extremely unlikely to get an environmental permit.

    Oceanica’s cofounding shareholder, DNA Ltd, Inc, is tied to a Panamanian entity whose principal members are connected to a number of alleged financial crimes – why did Odyssey Marine Exploration structure it this way?

    Isn’t it weird that Odyssey Marine Exploration has been unable to address any of the serious questions posed by concerned shareholders?

    It’s concerning that John Morris, the founder of Odyssey Marine, is currently being sued by members of Seagrass Recovery.

    Odyssey Marine Exploration and Neptune Minerals have been tied to brokerage firms with many FINRA sanctions, this is very alarming – would you invest in this company? Buyer beware.

    Odyssey Marine Exploration has disappointed 100% of the time on its estimated project recoveries, can you trust anything they say?

    Why does Odyssey Marine Exploration have opaque and unexplained offshore subsidiaries in the Bahamas and Panama? These are completely unnecessary for Odyssey’s operations.

    Based on its current cash reserves and negative cash flow Odyssey Marine Exploration could very well go bankrupt in 2014.

    Odyssey Marine Exploration was held in contempt of court after it lost the Blackswan case.

    World-class phosphate mining companies have previously evaluated and passed on the Oceanica asset – Odyssey is the only company interested in this uneconomic asset.

    Didn’t Odyssey’s chairman Brad Baker get exposed for signing on both sides of a deal?

    Why does Odyssey Marine Exploration use an auditor that has been sanctioned multiple times by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board?

    Based on accurate historical records, there was never any secret army gold aboard the SS Central America.

    It’s alarming that Odyssey Marine Exploration started as a shell purchased by Timothy Brasel, who was later cited by an SEC civil action for stock manipulation.

    It’s shocking that the predecessor of Odyssey Marine Exploration, Seahawk, went bankrupt – but it’s even more shocking that every other reverse merger treasure hunting company (six in total!) have also gone bankrupt.

    It’s alarming that Odyssey Marine Exploration has lost nearly $200,000,000 of shareholder capital while insiders have personally made millions – how much longer can this continue?

    Isn’t it ironic that Odyssey Marine Exploration has posted enormous financial losses but CEO Greg Stemm makes enough money to afford five houses for himself and his family? That doesn’t seem fair at all.

    Why does Odyssey host closed conference calls in which only their investment bankers get to ask questions? Why won’t Odyssey answer questions from other shareholders? Are they hiding something?
