Cost For My Service

All Recoveries are on a REWARD System - so we DO ask for a reward based on what the lost item is worth to you and what you can afford. I charge a $35 call out fee to search for your lost item.

All travel and incidental fees will be agreed upon prior to rendering any services.

We gladly accept VISA, Mastercard, American Express, Discover or Cash.

Call us as soon as you can! As much as you may want to, it’s best not to dig through the sand (it can dislodge, sink or even move your item making it more difficult to find). Be aware that people may have seen that you’ve lost something valuable and they may return when you leave, so time is of the essence! Be sure you only reveal the location of your valued item to a trusted source - the sooner you call us, the better our chance to successfully recover your lost treasure!

Search Types

Beaches, Ocean/Lakes (up to 3ft depth), Yards, Parks and Athletic Fields. With permission... Private property and some Parks and Athletic Fields

Search Locations

Emerald Isle, NC Atlantic Beach, NC Morehead City,NC Hubert,NC Jacksonville,NC , Surf City
