Rick Lagina read about the mystery of Oak Island when he was very young, and that’s when he decided to solve this mystery.

They own most of the island, to be precise the own 78% of the island. Oak Island Tours Incorporated is a company that makes tours for many people that visits Oak Island. The people come to the island to learn about the history and the treasure. They take them on guided tours all around the island, where they can learn a lot about legends and everything that has to do with the treasure hunt.

There isn’t any information about how much does Rick or any other cast member earns from residuals, and it is also unknown how much cast members earn per episode.
But it doesn’t matter how much they earn because most of the fans believe that Rick and his brother Marty invest a lot of the money, they earn into the fund for their treasure hunt. That’s the reason this TV show exists, the love that they feel for this island, and the passion they have for the treasure hunt. Both brothers enrolled in this adventure because of the thrill, and not because of the money.
