This world is covered with vast bodies of water, weather it is oceans, seas, lakes, rivers, quarrys, or what ever. And in these bodies of water R trash and treasures of today and back when. What is your best find.

I found $20 bucks at the bottom of a quarry during a dive once. I have found mask, weights, anchors, but the best thing I found diving was plenty of friends!

A frisbee ... well my dog loved it anyway.

Sounds like some good finds

A wallet without ID with $400 in it. We've find a number of them during spring clean-up of one of the local rivers. If it has ID we return whatever we find.

found a broken snorkel once

The only thing that I have found is the bottom. Well, ok so I did find 2 5lb soft weights still in the BC pockets. Never figured out why someone would have left them. I know they don't have enough weight to get back down but I would think that their buddy would.

sunglasses, a mask, weights, and once an old brewery bottle from a place that shut down in the 70's

Around where I dive we find tons of old bottles; some of them are fairly modern, but there are also plenty of others that date back to 1900 or before. I'd post pictures of the few I have, but my camera is out of commission.

I haven't been diving for too terribly long.....about 18 dives so far. I LOVE to find treasures above water so I am sure I will be excited when I find something underneath. Can't wait...

So far I have found a fishing lure and a couple bottles(trash)-still looking for other stuff though.

Here are a few pics of the bottles I've found. Nothing really cool like the bronze bust my friend pulled up during a cleanup dive, but it's what I've got.

I found a megalodon tooth, off of Venice, FL.

That was a fun dive.

Last working dive I did I picked up a .25 automatic pistol, a .40 stainless Kahr pistol, a Highpoint 9mm pistol and a Cobray M11 pistol and one stolen county police walkie talkie, a jar full of pennies and approximately 125 pounds of lead fishing sinkers. Oh, and a credit card. Guns are at the crime lab for analysis.
