Dive With Us

Steer out to the Gulf of Mexico and dive into an underwater adventure!

Join us on our shark tooth dive charter for a personalized exploration with fossil expert, Ben Schultz! You’ll meet at Venice Fisherman’s Wharf, Slip #3, 509 North Tamiami Trl, 34285 at 7:00 a.m. and depart for your adventure promptly at 7:15 a.m. You’ll travel to various spots between Venice and Manasota on a four-hour adventure 2-tank dive.  Ben will discuss each site with you and give you direction on the best way to find megs and other fossils for both sites.  This is not a guided dive, but a dedicated DM is available for a small fee.
