About Yvonne Addario

YVONNE ADDARIO is a world traveler, undersea explorer, and part owner of a treasure ship that is still being recovered today. Yvonne writes about a popular niche in history. Her readers always long to hear more about “the golden age of piracy” from the past to the present.

Aside from slinging anchors and hoisting ropes and sails, she has had the unique privilege and pleasure to journey to destinations along the routes these explorers and pirates traveled, tasted the foods and taken in the sights. She has recreated native recipes from their Caribbean island haunts, not only to make them ‘piratically fun’ but also esthetically pleasing for guests on her research and recovery vessels and for shipwreck business parties.

Yvonne writes for local newspapers and Lost Treasure magazine, and authored the successful book, Treasure Diving with Captain Dom - Special Archival Section and publishing Diving for Sunken Treasure: Excerpts from the Jupiter Wreck Trilogy for the cruise-ship industry, where she and Captain Dominic are often invited as “Enrichment Speakers” aboard Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, and Regency cruise lines.
