Lost Go Pro 4 in Aulani Disney Resort Ko Olina Lagoon...FOUND!!!

  • from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)

This hunt began when I got a call from Alex at Aulani Disney Resort. He told me a gentleman named Christian lost his Go Pro 4 with all their vacation photos while paddle boarding in the lagoon. I told him I could be there around noon to look. While en-route I got stopped at the freeway entrance as President Obama’s motorcade was heading to the North Shore. Thankfully the wait was only 15 minutes. Not many route options on the island of Oahu. When I arrived I went down to the beach to get the locating data and to meet Christian. The lagoon was extremely murky from the high west surf and visibility was only about ten feet which is horrible in Hawaii. Alex paddled out to the area as I snorkeled out. The depth was about fifteen feet so I started my search. I bring my metal detector in case the camera gets covered in sand and silt. As I started my grid the Go Pro came into view lying among some rocks. I put it inside my wet-suit and continued my metal detecting for other lost treasure. This time I only found a tungsten wedding band, a pair of sunglasses and a few coins. Never know around here what you might find. Christian and his wife were ecstatic that I found their Go Pro. It was still on when I found it. Aloha to Christian.
