Have you ever imagined what it would be like to scuba
dive 10 million years ago? Now you can dive where the
ancient Megalodon once lived and recover fossil
evidence of its massive teeth. We are headed to the
clear waters off the coast of North Carolina to a rich
trove of fossil teeth. In 2012, divers averaged
80-100 teeth recovered per trip - three to five inch
teeth are frequently found, with an occasional monster
exceeding six inches!
recovered over 190 complete teeth from Megalodons, as
well as prehistoric Mako and Great Whites while diving
on the fossil ledge. Brian Bondy being
the most experienced fossil recovery diver on the
Huron Scuba crew has
collected a combined total of well over 550 teeth. Several of
the teeth and bones are on
display at Huron Scuba as well as a monster that is on display at Ann Arbor's Public Television station
CTN. Come check them out, put them in
your hands and you will see for yourself why people who
have come on this trip in the past, always sign up for a
second, or third or forth year ! Tooth-fever is
incurable and we are proud to spread the infection to
our dive travel teams every year. Join us for Meg Quest
Megalodons were about 60 feet long, and weighed as much
as 77 TONS, preyed on whales and large fish.

Each trip includes three days of 2-tank shark teeth
hunting diving at a secret location in the clear ocean
off the coast North Carolina and 3 nights lodging.
Even with room for 6 divers now, this will be a trip
that sells out fast. Minimum of
Deep Diver certification
is mandatory, as these are working dives between 80-110
feet with minimal decompression possible. Due to the
nature of this trip, it is by application only - no one
is guaranteed a space until his or her paperwork and
deposit have been received, reviewed and approved by
Brian (may require an in person meeting to review
certifications and dive history). If your
expereince and qualifications do not meet the
your deposit will be refunded immediately.
Other fossil diving trips drop you in a murky river
to deal with snakes and alligators while you hunt for
small fossils in dark, no-vis, fast-moving water. On
this trip, you'll be in the open ocean, with great
visibility for your hunt. One drawback to open ocean
diving is the weather - historically, conditions allow
meg teeth dive boats to go out about 60% of the

Once your payment in full has
been made, you will be given the exact location for
our accommodations and diving as this sometimes changes.
Special equipment advice will be provided regarding
cylinders, tooth collecting equipment, and reels during
a "pre-trip" meeting to be scheduled on TBD.
If the boat captain cancels a day
of diving due to weather or mechanical issues, divers
will be refunded $TBD (2012 refunds were $135) per lost day of diving.
Due to the cost of fuel a surcharge should be
expected. This is not covered in your trip fees
but will probably only range in price from $5 - $20 per
person per day depending upon the price of fuel and the
distance we go each day. (There are multiple locations
for teeth, some further)
