Got to spend another weekend diving the Cooper River in South Carolina with Alan Devier. If you dive the Cooper or want to dive the Cooper, Alan is the guy to go with. He is a class act.    Found a bunch of good teeth and was an all around good time.

Is that your dive helmet?  (tell us more about it!)

 

How deep, how cold?

 

Is that a Great White tooth?

Yes it's my helmet. I made it from a Dive Rite helmet. 6k lumen main canister light and two 1k lumen side lights.

Cooper ranges from 15 to 45 feet where I dive. Water temps are going up. It was 58 Saturday and 59 on Sunday at the bottom.

I found some great whites but the one I was holding up is a Magalodon

I’ve been diving since the 70’s.   I only started diving for fossils last year.  I’ve been tech diving for several years though.

Very cool finds.

Do your face and neck get cold pretty quick? Seems like they’d almost go numb. I use to dive years, but gave it up because my husband didn’t want to learn and felt uncomfortable even trying it.

I dive three tanks a day for two days and only my pinky fingers got cold (previously frost bitten in Alaska).  

You should get your hubby into the sport.
