History of Message in a Bottle:

Fragile as it is, a well-sealed bottle is one of the world's most seaworthy objects.

It will bob safely through hurricanes that can sink great ships; and for most practical purposes, glass lasts forever.

There is no way to predict where a bottle might travel, and that is part of its mystery. This mystery has intrigued people for as long as there have been bottles.

Ever since humans have had the "vessel" for a letter, the ability to write and the time to do it, we can assume that messages have been dropped into the sea.

Messages inside of bottles have been floated over a long period of time by a variety of people, for a variety of reasons. The earliest known sender recorded was the Greek philosopher Theophrastus who, in around 310 B.C., threw sealed bottles into the Mediterranean to prove that the inland body of water was formed by the inflow of the Atlantic.

Queen Elizabeth I of England in the 16th Century used bottles to carry intelligence reports. Messages in bottles have been chronicled for centuries and include some of the most faous names in history. For example, Ben Franklin, used message-carrying bottles to compile a basic knowledge of East Coast currents in the mid-1700's, and to this day is still used by the U.S. Navy.

Today, you can capture that old world spirit using modern technology to ensure your message reaches its final destination.
