    Waccamaw River

    I’m going to be in Myrtle Beach this summer and would like to scuba dive in the Waccamaw River. Does anyone have information about this? I’m especially interested in a charter or going with an experienced group. Thanks!
  2. My neighbor and I are both getting ready to make some dives off of Venice, Florida to find some shark teeth. My neighbor just moved in, and I'm only recently certified, so we were wondering if anyone could share some GPS coordinates of places to make our first dives in Venice. He already owns a boat so taking a charter seems like an unnecessary expense. Any help would be great!

    Found while tooth diving

    I found this while diving off of NC for Meg teeth. Any idea what it is?
  4. My diving day was filled with technical difficulties. But after a frustrating morning I dove down to a fossil rich spot. I had to wait a bit to get back in due to tide changes, but this mammoth tooth was sitting right there for the taking!
  5. My friend joined me for a weekend of black water diving. She found a couple massive heart-breaker megalodon teeth her very fist time! Perfect conditions all weekend long made it a great time on the water.
  6. I got to do my first Meg Ledge trip yesterday. The weather was nasty on the “offshore” ledge, so we hit the “inshore” one. So ~25 miles out instead of ~40. All three dives were at ~100’. The attached pictures contain the haul from my final dive of the day. Almost got a 6” tooth. I’m curious to see how they look after they’ve been cleaned up.
  7. I'm hoping to dive the Cooper River in the next month or so. Most of my questions were answered by watching a bunch of videos on Youtube and perusing the internets. The main question that I'm left with is "how much lighting do I need?" I see a BIG range, in terms of the brightness (or lack thereof) of lighting setups that people are using. From people using a ~500 lumens main light, to people using a helmet with a 6,000 lumens main light and two 1,000 lumens backups. I've currently got a 1,000 lumens light with a glove for my primary and ~600 lumens (I think it would
  8. Been awhile since I posted anything so I thought I'd drop some pics of the nice teeth from my trip two weeks ago. The makos are both a little shy of 3" and were laying about twelve inches from each other on the bottom. The nicer one was sticking up out of the bottom and if you look closely, you can see the discoloration on the tip where it was exposed. Those were the only teeth I found at that spot besides a 6" shamer that was split in two, so I was really happy to find them. The big one was a really lucky find. I was on an older spot that I'd hit before so I tried go
  9. I know there are megs off of Venice beach and I get so jealous of the finds people post after diving!! They are gorgeous teeth!!! Curious- can these megs be scooped up without scuba equipment? I would love to get certified but right now it's not in my budget...

    River Diving Northeast FL

    Hi everyone, I recently moved up to Fernandina Beach this fall. I've been having decent luck finding fossils along spoil piles on islands and beaches. But as an avid diver, I'd like to take it underwater this spring/summer. The only fossil diving I've done so far is out of Venice and some snorkeling in the rivers in Central Florida. I know that the current is ripping through the St. Mary's and St. John's and it is a blackwater dive, but I've heard of people diving them for meg teeth. I've got my boat and all my dive gear here waiting for the wa
  11. Dove the St Marys river Sunday with Subpay charters and had a productive day finding lots of megs, makos, great white, mammoth and whale teeth!

    New to North Carolina

    Me and my wife, Navy Corpsman, were recently moved from San Antonio to Jacksonville, NC. I'm glad to be back on the east coast. I've checked out Onslow Beach and the Aurora Fossil Museum and their piles outside. I've had luck at both but want to switch my focus back to the creeks, rivers, and perhaps quarries. I've been interested in checking out GMR for quite some time but don't have the screens to properly search right now. I'd love to get to the Tar River and find some inverts, specifically ecphora, which I've always loved finding. I'm also itching to get back into the rivers and dive. I ha

    SC Shark Teeth Article

    Collecting in SC, small controversy. http://www.thestate.com/latest-news/article205982124.html
  14. Hi All, While diving South Carolina rivers, I've collected a group of bones which seem to have the same general characteristics: Roughly hourglass shaped, tapering lengthwise (like a doorstop), most have perceptible grooves if viewed from the correct angle. Are these just random bone frags that coincidentally eroded to roughly the same shape? Or can they be identified to a specific body part such as an ankle or foot ?

    Another Meg Ledges Trip

    A couple of members have been asking about my recent trip to dive the ledges off Wilmington. Here is a quick trip summary. We chartered a fast 43ft boat that took us out 42 miles to an area that is a little over 100ft deep. That takes two hours of running to get there. Then we dive using big 120cu ft HP steel tanks filled with Nitrox (air with more oxygen mixed in it), so that we can stay on the bottom a bit longer than if we were using air. We did two dives on the first day, and returned back 5 more days in a row, diving 3 tanks every day after the first day. We dove 17 dives in six days, a

  17. Fossil divers do it in the mud... or rocks... or sand... pretty much anywhere there's teeth. The point is, we crawl over a lot of stuff in the course of a dive. This weekend I was doing the normal thing looking for teeth while tyring to appear unappetizing to any passing sharks or gators when something scrunched under my right kneepad. I crawl over about a million and five rocks each dive, and usually ignore stuff like this, but that little fossil angel that straddles my tank said, "Better check that one out." So I did, and doggone it, that was a tooth down there! 3.9" fresh out of

    Limb Bone from Cooper River SC

    Hello Forum members, I found this limb bone while diving the Cooper River in SC. I initially thought it likely to be a deer bone based on the overall size and proportions, but I'm unable to match it to any deer bone descriptions I've found. Any ideas?

    SC River Mammal Tooth

    Hi All, Another Mammal tooth found river diving in South Carolina, and I'm not sure what it is:

    Cooper River SC Mammal Tooth

    Hi All, I'm currently on a dive trip to the Cooper River in SC. I found this tooth the other day. The guys I'm diving with believe it to be a horse incisor. To me, it seems too straight to be horse.
  21. Hey all, I'm planning a trip to dive the Cooper river April 1st and 2nd. Four dives per day. The boat is already reserved, and there are open seats if anyone is interested. For details please contact me. These are my finds from a single dive during my last trip,

    SC River Finds

    Hi All, Had a great trip to South Carolina for river diving last weekend. The water was cold, and we had to dry-suit it, but nonetheless, everyone made some incredible finds, and had a great time. I've got three items I'm looking for the forum's expertise and wisdom on. 1. The first six pics are of what I believe to be a Camel Metacarpal, or Metatarsal. It looks to be in very pristine condition, so much so, that when I first found it, I assumed it must be modern and almost didn't bring it up. After returning home and investigating, I learned that it m
  23. I'm taking some time off work and making a road trip down to Florida at the end of the month. I'll be trying to hit several sites along the way but will be in the Venice area sometime between these dates. I'll be doing some shore diving in the mornings if anyone is interested in joining me. I generally dive solo but having the company is nice on those long swims to and from shore. I have a fair amount of experience with these dives so if you have experience or not, you're more than welcome to join. Daniel
  24. I will be traveling to Florida 10/26 through 11/1 and planning to attempt to find my first meg. Any advice on charters that have been good or bad, gear rental, better from boat or shore, snorkeling options, etc are much appreciated. Thank for your help!
  25. Hi everyone- Does anyone know if there are any rappelling trips in the U.S. or Internationally to see fossils? also does anyone know if one can rappell down a cliff face to view the K-T boundary? I know its exposed and visible in Raton Basin, Raven Ridge and Trinidad Lake State Park but has anyone done rappelling on a fossil hunt? looking for a combo of fossil hunting, excavation and adventure! Any really super adventurous fossil hunting trips advise will be appreciated. thanks.
