  • Land/Shallow Water Search
  • Diver/Underwater Search

Cost For My Service

For land and shallow water I work on a reward basis, that means you pay what its worth to you and what you can afford if I find your lost item. If the item isn't found I do ask for $25.00 to cover my gas fee to get to your location.

For any service that requires my scuba diving skills to find your lost item I do request a fifty dollar Scuba suit up fee in waters over five feet and then on a gratuity basis when your item is found.

I will work with insurance claims on a percentage basis that will be negotiated prior to the search.

Search Types

Beaches, parks, lakes & yards any where I can use my metal detector to help you find what you have lost...I'm also equipped to search deeper waters as I'm Scuba certified.

Search Locations

Northern suburbs possibly others locations if requested.
