Long Description: 
Segment 1: Queen Anne's Revenge: Blackbeard's Shipwreck. Jonathan joins a team of underwater archaeologists on a project to excavate the remains of the Queen Anne's Revenge, better known as Blackbeard the Pirate's ship. Jonathan assists the archaeologists at the site off North Carolina and learns some of the techniques involved in underwater archaeology! Segment 2: Night of the Mantas. At night off the Kona coast, divers use lights to attract vast clouds of plankton, which in turn attract dozens of Manta rays to feed on the plankton. Jonathan travels to Hawaii to meet these Manta rays, including one particular animal named Lefty who has been coming to this site since 1979.
