legend this famous pirate was an officer in the Spanish navy in the late 1700's and for political reasons was wrongly convicted of crimes. Jose escaped from a Spanish prison, along with several followers, and turned to a life of piracy and declared a one man war against Spain. He was very successful and was responsible for many attacks against Spanish merchant and treasure ships. Over time he amassed a fortune in treasure. More can be read about this legendary pirate in our section, "Treasure" and the article, "Pirate Jose Gaspar".

To our knowledge we are the first company and production team to investigate the famous legend of the pirate Jose Gaspar. We have received a lot of support and interest in this project. This famous pirate legend is even celebrated once a year in Tampa, Florida. Tampa is part of the area in which the legendary pirate based his operation. The legend is celebrated in Tampa by a large pirate festival which last for several days and
