Shallow waters = body of water , hence requires where.

I'm confused about the use of "anyone...whether archaeologist, treasure hunter, or blah blah blah"

So you don't have to use "a" or "an" in front of these people?

since the part you are talking is non-underlined one for which we should not worry.

B makes sense.

B

because of "more" in non-underlined part we require "than"... so its between A and B.

"them" in A has no clear antecedent. It could refer to shallow coastal waters or archeological remains.

B for me .... just looked at the coastal waters part, and what comes after it should reference the fact that the shipwreck lying in shallow water is what makes it so easy to find

Only A and B are applicable here.
So I go for B as B is clear and concise.
