Cooper RIver / Megladon Tooth Trip, July 16-19, 2021

Ready to do some underwater hunting into the past?  Come dive the Cooper River in search of fossils, artifacts, and shark teeth! Our annual trip to the Cooper river has us staying in a comfortable house at the rivers edge just feet away from the pontoon taking us up and down the Cooper.  Hunt for teeth, experience "black water" diving, and see the floral and fauna where fresh and salt water meet.  Artifacts from prehistoric, native American, and Civil War era have all been found.  Some times on the same dive!  This trip is for experienced divers.  The boat captain (and house owner) has requested that all divers be trained in Solo diving (or equivalent, this includes Dive Master and/or Tech Training).
