A Maritime Search And Salvage Operation In One Of The World's Most Prolific Shipwreck Zones

Uruguay is a relatively small South American nation on the Atlantic coast, just south of Brazil and north of Argentina. The wide brown waters of the Rio de la Plata (River of the Silver) define its southern and western borders.

The Rio de la Plata, at its mouth is nearly two hundred miles across. Just inside this massive opening lies the English Banks (Banco Inglés), a dangerous area of shallows and underwater sand dunes bending across nearly twenty miles of the river's gaping yaw. Directly next to these shallows stretch the cautiously marked shipping channels leading 18 miles to Montevideo, Uruguay and 120 miles to Buenos Aires, Argentina.
