And what a treat it was to connect with today’s guest. As owner operator and Skipper of Salty Dog Sea Tours here along the South Shore – I’ve had a great chance to experience Tony Sampson’s stellar skills on the sea and his incredible wealth of knowledge when it comes to the mysteries of Oak Island and the waters that surround her. In fact it’s Tony’s passion for the ocean and treasure hunting, – as well as his vast experience in commercial diving – that led to his being a part of the History Channel’s smash series THE CURSE OF OAK ISLAND – with cast and crew status on each of its blockbuster seasons. So we’ll talk about all of that and so much more including his affinity for shipwrecks, his stance on ghosts, and his most recent underwater find. Plus we’ll learn what delights him most about his guided tour business and how his love of scuba diving delivered the love of his life. We’ll even get to first things first and spins some of his favourite tunes while we’re at it. So with all that ahead – we best get to it. Here’s my conversation with the one and only Tony Sampson. (you’ll find the player at the bottom of the post)
