The Curse of Oak Island follows the investigation of a 224 year old buried treasure lurking beneath almost impenetrable mysteries and rubble. So, this season – in what the History channel called their largest excavation to date – the Oak Island team didn’t hold back. Using advanced scientific strategies like seismic testing, sonic coring, and ground penetrating radar, Rick, Marty and Craig Tester got more access to the Money Pit than any year before. These archaeological efforts hoped to uncover all the secrets that were still hidden beneath the murky swamp.
Today’s episode gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at Oak Island. The team sits down to discuss challenges, iconic moments, and significant discoveries from their intense treasure hunt.

And as if ancient riches weren’t enough, this long-running show with the treasure-seeking Lagina brothers also has a connection to Michigan wine. The Lagina family owns Mari vineyards, which opened in 2016 on the Old Mission Peninsula, north of Traverse City. The family dream is to create world class red wines. So try the Gamay Noir and signature Row 7. The winery has the elegant look of an Italian villa and the staff offers tours of the wine cellars (a treasure all of its own).

Rick, Marty, and the Oak Island team are back for the biggest season yet – bringing more determination, resources, and technology than ever to solving the 224-year-old treasure puzzle. After seismic tests revealed a potentially sunken ship was buried in the triangular-shaped swamp late last season, the team will conduct sonic core drilling, strategic dives, and eventually a historic major excavation to find out what might be buried beneath it. Working closely with landowner Tom Nolan, son of the late Fred Nolan, Rick, Marty and Craig Tester have unprecedented access to areas of the island that they hope will provide answers … and treasure.
Even more extensive metal detection is used to search the island’s surface, while extensive archaeological digs are being carried out near the historic homesteads of Daniel McGinnis and Samuel Ball.
The cofferdam at Smith’s Cove is being expanded to allow the team to conduct an even more thorough investigation than last year, which uncovered numerous man-made structures from more than two decades before the money pit was discovered in 1795. The Oak Island team won’t find any more of the old slipway, but look for the box drains and artifacts – like the 14th century lead cross found two years ago. You will also be drilling and digging above the beach to find what is known as the point of convergence, where the box drains are believed to converge into a single flood tunnel that leads back to the original money pit.
In the Money Pit area itself, they will be performing deep ground penetrating radar to search for the flood tunnel, and using state-of-the-art surveying technology and heavy digging machinery, they will be early 19th century search shafts the original money pit. This will lead to the largest and most extensive digs Rick, Marty, Craig Tester and the team have ever carried out to find the fabled Chappell Vault once and for all.
After 224 years, the Oak Island mystery now has the greatest chance of finally being solved.
