Venice Shore Dive
Join us for a fun day of diving for fossilized shark’s teeth, bones, stingray barbs/teeth, and more! Venice Beach is the self-proclaimed, “Shark Tooth Capital of the World!”
Ten million years ago when Florida was underwater, the area was surrounded by sharks. When the land was eventually uncovered, so was their teeth. Storms and waves eventually pushed the fossils along the coast and onto the beach and into shallow waters with a fossil layer running 18 to 35 feet deep.
Adventure Outfitters has found hundreds of sharks’ teeth, ranging from bull sharks, to lemon sharks, to tiger sharks, to megladons! We also have found rare prehistoric horse teeth, dolphin teeth, and rostrum spines. While collecting teeth, you may also come across baby bat fish, sea robins, lizard fish and sea hares. We have even spotted manatees along the shoreline!
This is an easy dive – great for beginners – and will be at a depth at about 18 to 25 feet. The trip includes a divemaster guide, buoy, a goodie bag, and a air fill/tank. If you wish to pair this trip with a course, Adventure Outfitters will provide a 5% discount on the course. This is a great trip to pair with peak performance buoyancy!
If the dive is cancelled due to weather, the trip will be rescheduled.
