  • Land/Shallow Water Search

Cost For My Service

I work on a reward basis and the reward is agreed upon in advance. So, other than a local trip charge of $35 to cover my gas expense, if I'm unable to find what you lost, no matter how many hours I spend looking for it, you won't owe me a thing for my time.

This service anything on land and up to chest deep water only.

Any thing above chest deep water we'll need to use scuba equipment for that service there's a $100 charge to suit in advance.

Search Types

Beaches, Parks, Yards, Homesteads, Campgrounds and Jobsites

I'm also a certified scuba diver if needed. With Hawaii's unique environment most detectors have a tendency to give off a lot of false readings causing a lot of wasted time and energy.

I use detectors by Minelab that are proven to work well on the islands.

Search Locations

I cover the whole island of Oahu

Don Bryant's Bio

Aloha and welcome to TheRingFinders

I'm originally from Northern California and moved to Hawaii in 2006

I have about 25 years of experience metal detecting in a lot of different environments from freshwater lakes, hunting for relics from the gold rush of California and now on the Beaches of Hawaii.

Being able to return an item of value like a wedding ring or engagement ring for someone on vacation or just out for the day is extremely rewarding....the look on there face when the item is found is priceless!

Unfortunately i'm not able to return most of the items I find to the original owner....but hopefully we can help return yours.

Mahalo....Don Bryant

    Received a call from Vytas on vacation from California he called me around 4:30 pm so I rushed down to Turtle Bay Resort before the sun went down. I literally put the coil on the sand and took 3 swipes and found the ring I think it took me about 10 seconds. Another happy customer!
