CA coasts might not be the best place but at places like Caribeans or Mediteraneans or English Channel or South China sea there must be tons of sunken ships, no?  Is it possible to make a business hunting for those treasures?

People do it. The ones that are real serious about it have large ships, robotic submarines and sonar. They are pretty expensive to setup and run. I don't think it is something you can just start doing one day at a profesional level. I know that their is more  gold on the ocean floor then on land but I think most of it that is in divable depths is  long gone. I think they had a tv show on for  a while that followed some treasure hunters.
