Roger Miklos

Discovery

Roger is a treasure hunter who has been excavating shipwreck sites since the 1970's. As a former Reno, NV police officer, Roger developed an interest in treasure salvage in the early 1960's and his passion compelled him to relocate his family to Cocoa Beach, Florida. While searching for coins on the beach, Roger met famous treasure hunter Kip Wagner. Impressed by Miklos’s perseverance, Wagner offered Miklos a job salvaging the 1715 Fleet alongside him. Through Kip Wagner, Roger also met Astronaut Gordon Cooper and the two bonded over their mutual enthusiasm for treasure hunting, even appearing together on The Merv Griffin Show in 1978. Roger has been involved in some of the most valuable discoveries of the past four decades and has since passed his treasure hunting knowledge and experience to his son Darrell.
