Nancy, Bess and George travel to Key Largo to help their friend Delia catch the person who's been poaching rare orchids from the island. George leaves her friends to help a married couple find the mother lode from a centuries' old shipwreck. However, a modern-day pirate may get to the gold and jewels before George and the others do.
