Lost Gold Wedding Band at Nai'a Lagoon Koolina Resort...FOUND!!!

from O‘ahu (Hawaii, United States)


This ring find began when I got a call from Gordon who resides in Anchorage Alaska and was vacationing and visting friends at the Marriott Ko Olina. While going for a snorkel in the lagoon his wedding band came off and he assumed it must have come off just as he was entering the water. Traffic was a mess and it took me nearly 2 hours to get to Ko Olina from town. When I arrived Gordon met me at the Tiki Bar and we walked down to the beach to hunt for the ring. It was sure to be easy if the ring came off early otherwise scuba tomorrow would have been the option. I started a grid search from the water’s edge to chest deep water. I just cleaned this lagoon out a few weeks back so the first two targets were shiney new pennies. On about the 4th leg I got a nice tone in knee deep water and one scoop down there was Gordon’s gold ring in the scoop. I picked the ring from the scoop and held it out so Gordon could see it where he was sitting on the shoreline. An eruption of applause roared through the beachgoers and Gordon came running down to get his ring. Comments of “Awesome” and “That is so cool” echoed through the crowd and all Gordon could say was “I’m out of the dog house now”. Another vacation saved. Aloha to Gordon!
