A luxury resort in Bermuda this summer has arranged for guests to explore a shipwreck that dates back to the 17th century.
Guests at Rosewood's Tucker's Point resort can dive to see the historic Castle Harbour shipwreck of the Warwick. The dive package is available through July 24.
The ship's believed to date back to the Armada of 1588. When it set sail in 1619, it ran into a hurricane, which sent the ship to the depths of the sea off the coast of what is now the hotel.
The research team is back this summer to continue uncovering the mystery in a partnership with the National Museum of Bermuda and the Institute of Nautical Archaeology.
