Join Jack Jones and his crew in this modern-classic adventure as they follow in the footsteps of old pirates and go in search of long-lost treasure!
When a message-in-a-bottle washes up on their local beach, Jack Jones, his sister Emma and best buddy Albert discover that it just might lead to a Spanish galleon ship that has been lost for centuries!
With some help from their parents - who just so happen to be Professors of History and Archaeology - and an old family friend, the three set off on a Caribbean adventure, hoping to solve the mystery and uncover the lost ship, and perhaps even find the treasure still rumoured to be aboard.
Will Jack and his crew decode the clues left by pirates to reveal the hidden location of the ship? Can they succeed where many have failed, or will they fall into one of the traps left behind by those trying to protect the ship and be lost inside a hidden cave on Forbidden Isle for all eternity?
