For over two centuries, teams of searchers - including Franklin D. Roosevelt - have attempted to crack the code that will unearth the treasure believed to be buried on the small island off the coast of Nova Scotia.

Armed with the knowledge of those that came before them, the muscle of heavy machinery and decades of engineering know-how, the Laginas and their partners may be closer than anyone in history to finding the treasure that has so far claimed the lives of six men.

Rick, Marty and the Oak Island team are back for the biggest season yet bringing with them more determination, resources and technology than ever in their quest to solve the 224-year old treasure mystery.

After seismic testing conducted at the end of last season revealed a possible sunken ship buried in the triangle-shaped swamp, the team will use sonic core drilling, strategic dives and finally a historic big dig to find out what could be buried below.

Now fully partnered with fellow land owner, Tom Nolan, the son of the late, Fred Nolan, Rick, Marty and Craig Tester will have unprecedented access to areas of the island that they hope will yield answers and treasure.
