I received a call for a lost ring in beautiful Georgian Bay, It was lost in Allenwood Beach.
I spoke with Dane, Katherines husband and he told me how she lost it in the water. it was priceless to her and really wanted it back. I set out first thing in the morning and spoke with her mom who was onsite keeping people out of the search area for me. She had put two markers down where they suspected it might be. I began gridding the search area.
After about an hour of searching in medium waves,
Gorgeous Heirloom engagement ring returned
up came the ring and a beauty it was. Her mom was excited as was I. Its a great feeling when you find someone’s precious lost item they expect never to see again. A quick call really helped me to pin it down. Katherine was very happy to have it found and the feeling is mutual.
More pictures coming of the happy couple when they return to Allenwood beach to collect the ring from Katherines Mother inlaw.
Jessica and Jackson had just become engaged within the last week. Jessica had just put on some sunscreen and felt her Engagement ring was OK to leave on her finger! Not too long after, her ring slipped off her finger through the deck boards and into the waters below. Jessica Panicked but she was smart enough to put dimes down and placed a nail with rope/washers in location she felt her ring fell through the deck! Jessica then googled “Lost Ring and waters“, “The Ring Finders” directory came up and she called me immediately!
She was extremely upset when she called and inquire about The Ring Finders services!! PANIC HAD SET IT!
I made arrangements to come up the following evening immediately after work! I assured Jessica that she would not be going home without her engagement ring!!
I arrived in good time, set up all my scuba dive equipment and dive detecting equipment as the dark rain clouds moved in! Jessica’s Father was a huge help with my equipment!
Into the waters I went! Up once after a few minutes to re-check my position as there was ZERO VISIBILITY !! Could of targets later… THAT TONE!!!
Check out the video!!
Lots of patience and removing a few targets and there was her beautiful 10k white gold and diamond filled engagement ring!!! A very happy young couple indeed! CONGRATULATIONS Jessica & Jackson on your very recent engagement!!! ❤️💍❤️

2nd 🇨🇦 CANADA DAY 🇨🇦 Ring recovery request came in just as I was finishing up the Lake of Bay ring recovery!
Lauren had messaged “Hello. I was pointed in your direction in help of finding my lost white gold and diamond ring. July 1 at Wasaga beach area 1. I took it off momentarily and placed it in my sons cap. He then put it on his head and it fell out in the sand, I realized immediately but was unable to find it. It would be in the stretch of beach you see in the photo below. It could be between the water and approx 3/4 of the way to the sidewalk. It may have even stayed in his hat and fell out but we did not leave this area. Please let me know if you can help“
I message Lauren back that I was just cleaning up from a ring recovery in Muskoka and then I would give her a call.
I left the Muskoka area and called Lauren on the phone to get the details. I was on my way but time was of the essence at Wasaga Beach #1! I was crazy jam packed and the heat was incredible! Lucky to have had free parking for the day and found a spot close by!
Unfortunate, she she did not GPS the location but she did have a photo of where they were sitting! That was a huge help! When I arrived I FaceTimed Lauren as to the location.
When I was speaking with her, a lady beach goer that was sitting beside Lauren came up to me and said “are you looking for what I’m thinking you’re looking for?” and I said “yes I am and I’m the phone with the owner right now!”
The lady assisted by advising me where Lauren’s beach towels were!
One of the other ladies offered to video as I started my grid search. The second target in under 2 minutes I knew it was something sweet! Solid 6 on the Equinox800 and only 2 inches down! I pulled out my pinpointed and cleared the sand away…exposing the ring!
Check out this video of me finding the ring and then FaceTime in Lauren back!!! PRICELESS!!
I FaceTimed Lauren again and put the ring up to the phone! The tears & screams of joy from Lauren and her husband were heard!
I then made a plan with Lauren to meet her on my way home to return her beautiful engagement ring back to her!
Lauren was aware I have a “pay it forward” program on top of my call out fee. They made an extremely generous donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation which goes to help breast cancer patients with their financial support. (Wigs, medications, taxi, daycare, food, rent, etc) Lauren will then receive a tax receipt for the amount!!
I received a Facebook message from a City of Brampton co-worker Jayne L that her Vancouver, British Columbia Cousin Joel W was in town visiting Family back in Ontario. The Family gathered at their Mother’s home in The Blue Mountains, Thornbury, Ontario.
Joel and the Family were having a great time. He was out in Georgian Bay on the paddle board when he suddenly fell off. Joel watched his tungsten wedding fall off his finger to the depths below approximately 350′ from shore.
A few weeks passed and Jayne and her Mother (Carolyne’s Sister) were up visiting her Aunt Carolyne, (Joel’s Mother). Aunt Carolyne told them what happened to Joel’s wedding band. Jayne immediately advised her Aunt about her co-worker Alison that is registered with The Ring Finders and does land and water ring searches. Jayne left me that message to contact her Aunt ASAP.
I called Carolyne the next morning and made arrangement to be at her location in a few hours after getting my scuba tanks filled in Parry Sound.
Here’s a link to the video from my YouTube channel;
The underwater scuba detecting ring recovery took approximately 50 minutes. Much to the astonishment of Carolyne it was pure joy as that day August 13th was Joel & Victoria 7th wedding Anniversary!!
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY. #OutOfTheDogHouse

Received a call yesterday from a gentleman who had lost his ring near grand bend. The story sounded promising so we decided it would be worth the 2 hour drive.
After a couple hours on the road we m et with him and he showed us the approximate location, we had to swim out with all of our gear past a deep section to get to the shallower water where a football was being thrown the day before.
Within moments of being shown the location of where the ring had fallen off I had a strong beep so told the owner “I have a good beep here but it might not be the ring” as to not get his hopes up that fast. Sure enough when I looked down into the sand sifting basket I saw gold sitting in the bottom.
About a week ago we received a call from a pretty upset couple who had lost their wedding ring in Sauble Beach. We drove up that day to search and within a few minutes had a strong beep, we instantly dug the signal knowing it would be good and sure enough we pulled up a beautiful gold wedding band.
Excitedly we called back the owner and sent them a photo to hear them respond in a sad tone and say “That isnt my ring” Turns out in the same location we found another wedding band!! We continued the search that night and came out empty handed. We returned a few days later and searched another 6ish hours creating a grid and expanding the search as far as possible in the directions we were told they went. Again we came out without a ring.
At this point we were beginning to wonder where this ring could be, we knew the last chance to find this ring was to call them up and see if they would possibly drive 2 and a half hours to meet us at the location. They both kindly agreed to this and left there home town at 5:30am to meet us on the water at 8:00. My dad and myself new the ring wasnt in the location we had thought it was, the last hope was to have them redo their entire actions from that day and eliminate all the possibilities.
We met them at the beach and began right away by asking many questions,
when did you notice the ring was missing?
Where were you when it fell off?
Did you walk away from the area at any point?
After many questions we figured there was a few options, the ring was lost walking to get food, around their main on land location or it was out further than we had searched due to aggressive waves and a miss communication over the phone in terms of how deep he was actually out.
We gridded off the land with no luck and decided to move out much deeper than we searched previous days, the husband and wife both went out into the water with us (which was not super warm) and within five minutes of searching where he believed it was lost we found this amazing gold wedding band.
Moral of the story is never give up, continue to expand the grid and ask as many questions as possible!
I received a call a few days ago from a guy who had lost his wedding band in Lions Head ON. Myself and my father both avid users of metal detectors decided to take about an hour drive up to see if we could locate this item. We soon came to realize that the beach we were metal detecting had some large rocks making for a difficult search. The water depth in this location also dropped off very fast making it challenging to check further into the water. After about a steady two hours of searching as well as using goggles to go under and see if we could locate it by eye we decided to call the search off for the day as we covered pretty much all the area that we believed the ring was lost in. I had my suit about half off when he told us there was one more spot he would like us to search. The family created a rock statue and threw the rocks back in after they were done. I quickly suited back up and went over to the location the rocks had been thrown into. Within roughly a couple minutes I had a very strong beep ringing up at around a 63 on my Garrett AT Pro. I spend a small amount of time locating what rock this beep was coming from. I bent into the water and lifted a rock about the size of a football. Sure enough if his platinum ring and diamonds was not under that rock sparkling in the sun!!
We are very pleased to have helped this gentleman and look forward to many more searches to come!
