Michael worked with AdventureQuest to found and develop the Cocos Island Project that will recover one of the world’s greatest lost treasures, the Loot of Lima.

This amazing treasure has eluded countless treasure hunters over the years, but with the combination of a real treasure map passed down through the Forbes family generations revealing the location of the treasure, combined with the most advanced technology available, our team will locate and recover the treasure in partnership with the Government of Costa Rica.
