Tobago 1677 explores a dramatic moment in Caribbean and world history, when European nations battled for domination of the New World. Now, three centuries later, a team of archaeologists, filmmakers and scientists journey back in time, diving on twenty French and Dutch battleships that now lie covered by mud and sand in less than 60 feet of water in Scarborough Harbor, Tobago. Using historical re-enactments, high-end CGI animation, expert interviews, archival imagery, artifacts and state-of-the-art technologies, the film focuses on one of the most cruel and bloody sea battles ever fought by two European nations. The film also deals with the enormous wealth of artifacts uncovered, as these shipwrecks are windows into the world of our forgotten past.
