  • Land/Shallow Water Search
  • Diver/Underwater Search

Cost For My Service

The cost for my service is a call out fee depending on distance and a fair finders fee we can discuss before we meet.

If it’s a water search it will cost more but reasonable.

I require the call out fee up front before I search and finders fee when the item is returned to you.

It is most important to search as soon as possible as the longer it's lost the less chance of recovery so call me asap.

Search Types

I search Parks, beaches, picnic areas, Parking lots, Water detecting and scuba Diving. yards, farms etc.

Search Locations

I will search Wasaga Beach area, Collingwood, Penetanguisine, Orillia to Port Severn and as far south as Bradford, Simcoe County area.

Ted Gaudet's Bio

I am a professional ring finder and I have over 10 years experience metal detecting on land and water. I’m a certified scuba diver and have recovered many artifacts from land to water searches for people and as a hobby. My favorite thing is the joy I bring when I return a lost valuable to the people who lost it. My favorite was for a couple who both lost their rings in the water at their cottage. After a few hours I found both. They were very pleased to have them back as they were their wedding rings. It was a long search but worth it.

  • I would highly recommend anyone who has lost jewellery, keys, etc. to contact Ted ASAP!! (2020)


    What an amazing ending to such a horrible event. We can’t thank you enough Ted for everything you did for us. I would highly recommend anyone who has lost jewellery, keys, etc. to contact Ted ASAP!! He was very friendly and helpful on the phone he even wanted to come out right away it really felt like Ted cared about finding the ring as much as we did. We decided to hire Ted as he seemed very confident there was a high probability he could find the ring. After talking a bit we decided it would be better to come out in the morning as the sun was just going down. Unfortunately we had to return to the city the next day so Ted met with our mom in the morning who showed him the rough location of the lost ring. Ted went to work right away and within an hour he had found it!!! He called us to give us the good news and we really couldn’t believe it. Ted has managed to do the unthinkable!! After talking to him all we kept thinking was how happy we were that we called him and gave him a chance because without Ted our wedding ring would still be buried under the sand and water in Georgian bay. Thank you again Ted we will never forget what you have done for us!!!

  • I would highly recommend contacting Ted for any water retrieval ! (2017)

    Ted was a very experienced diver and helped me find my lost metal weed cutter with his professional submersible metal detector within minutes. It was in deep water with no visibility and weeds. I was so relieved to have it retrieved as it is very sharp and was a danger to my family who swims in the area it was lost. I would highly recommend contacting Ted for any water retrieval !
