While I was diving for a lady’s engagement ring and wedding band in the Middle River at Maryland Marina, located in Middle River, Maryland, a gentleman named Tim had lost his iPhone 11 off his boat nearby.
Tim walked up to my dive spotter, Jason, while I was underwater and asked him if he could chat with me. Once I ascended to the surface, Tim explained to me that he was stepping onto his boat on the other side of the marina when his iPhone fell out of his pocket and dropped down into the water.
The distraught gentleman then asked if I was available sometime during the day to dive in his boat slip and attempt a search and recovery of Tim’s lost smartphone. I was happy to help the fellow out.
As it turned out, my dive time was cut short that day based on the quantity of boats that were coming into port that afternoon. So, after packing up my gear, Jason and I hauled my dive equipment over to Tim’s slip to setup for my next search.
When I got over to Tim’s boat, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that he was dating a woman named Chrissy whose family owned the marina. I had already connected with her very kind father because of needing permissions to dive at the marina. Chrissy’s family members have been extremely supportive and encouraging regarding my recovery operations off their docks.
Once I got all of my gear back on, I stepped onto the swim deck of Tim’s fantastic boat and descended down his boat ladder. Next, I grabbed my underwater metal detector from the deck and headed down below to seek out the gentleman’s smartphone.
Tim, Chrissy, Jason and two other friends of the couple waited above with anticipation as I searched the water below. The depth was less than 10 feet with zero visibility (very common in the Maryland and Virginia areas).
I used a down line that Tim supplied which we tied to one of his tie offs on his boat closest to where he dropped the phone. This helped me to remain oriented as to where I was positioned down below. After picking up a few random pieces of metal that I detected with my Excalibur 2 metal detector, I encountered an excellent signal that sounded similar to other cell phones that I had previously found in the deep.
Convinced that this particular signal could very well be Tim’s iPhone, I took out my pinpointer and detected the exact location of where the target signal was coming from. Then, I reached with my hands to grab the object and it was at that moment that I was confident I had found the missing phone! The shape of the target felt like a smartphone and it also had the weight of one as well! Carefully, I ascended towards the surface with the item in hand.
Before the others could even see my dive mask, they saw the phone in hand as I slowly emerged from the water! There was a resounding applause and a huge feeling of complete relief felt by Tim and Chrissy! They were extremely grateful for my successful recovery of the phone!
I was so happy to recover Tim’s very important piece of property! The best part of the story is that after the phone had been submerged underwater for 6 hours, it still worked perfectly! Once news of the recovery hit the ears of the owner of the marina (Chrissy’s dad), I was proud to have earned a few extra points with Chrissy’s dad, the owner of Maryland Marina!
What a wonderful afternoon it was to help out this very sweet couple!
