Megan was sitting out on a dock with a pile of Friends when someone fell into the lake. She jumped up to help and her cell phone fell into the waters dockside in Gibson Lake, Port Severn in beautiful cottage country of the Muskoka Lakes region in Ontario!
I headed up after work with my underwater metal detector and decided to use my new DIVE BLU3 NEMO hookah system with the 10’ hose instead of all my scuba gear! The Blu3 Nemo hookah system is around 15lbs and is perfect for any recoveries 10’ or less!! Beats dragging all the gear and heavy scuba tank(s)!! I love this little unit!
During my underwater grid search I had a visit from Mister Bass. I pulled up some cans, bungee cords, a hot wheels car and finally managed to find Megan’s cell phone in 10-15 minutes! Hopefully the bag of rice I supplied will help save her phone/photos from damage being in the water for a few days already!

I have a call out fee. When I recover the lost item, I don’t take a reward! Instead, I request the client to ‘pay-it-forward’ with an immediate online donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation! The client then receives a tax receipt for the amount donated!! This is my 13th year snowmobiling for the Kelly Shires!
I received an email from Adrienne that her husband Michael lost his platinum wedding band in the silty waters dockside at their cottage in Lake Rosseau!
Lake Rosseau is an absolutely beautiful area in Ontario’s cottage country!
Michael was covering up their boat on a cold day and his wedding ring slipped off between the boat and the dock into the silty waters six feet below.
They made attempts to find the wedding ring themselves with no luck. A Friend suggested to contact my through The Ring Finders Dot Com website in which Adrienne connected with me!
Ontario cottage country was ablaze with the various trees “fall colors” on my trip up to Lake Rosseau in the Muskoka Lakes region!
I brought along my brand new hookah system called the “BLU3 NEMO”! This unit has a total weight of 10-12lbs total! I still had my fill scuba gear just in case!
Michael showed the exact location on the dock where he watched his wedding band fall into the water.
I proceeded into the water with the hookah unit and my Minelab Excalibur2 underwater metal detector. Five minutes later the wonderful “tone” of platinum sounded off in my headphones after I pulled two nails! BINGO!!!
I proceeded up from underneath the dock with the beautiful wedding band leading the way!
Here is the video of this beautiful wedding band recovery for Michael & Adrienne;
Happy smiles all around!!
Thank you so very much Michael & Adrienne for entrusting me to recover this beautiful wedding band but also your very generous donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation! I am humbled at your generosity as a credit to my metal/scuba detecting skills!
Michael and his family rented a cottage in the Port Carling, Muskoka Lakes Cottage country area in Ontario!
The cottage was nestled in the pine trees with an incredible view on Lake Joseph!
Michael had gone for a swim and later in the day he realized his custom wedding band crafted from an engine fan blade of an F-16 fighter jet was no longer on his finger! He and his wife Heather searched their cottage and boat with no luck!
Michael somehow got talking to my Friend Don “The HULSTER” Hulse whom works at the transfer station. Don advised Michael to call his Wife Laurie for my information!
I received a message from him and agreed to head up very early the following Labour Day holiday morning to search in the water!
Happy to have pulled off the surprise in recovering Michael’s unique wedding band!!
Check out the surprise In this video link…I reversed it up from my normal routine!!
Another donation coming into the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation 🌸💖🌸
Thanks to my dear Friend’s Laurie & Don for their recommendation 🌺❤️🌺 #LakeJoseph
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!!! ❤️💍❤️
Another donation coming in to “The Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation” shortly for my “PAY-IT-FORWARD” campaign as I forgo the ‘reward’ in recovery their lost item! Tax receipt provided by this awesome Foundation! 🌸💖🌸 Thank you again Jessica & Jackson! 🌸💖🌸
I received a phone call from Parker asking questions if I am able to come up to Lake-of-Bays near Baysville, Ontario in the Muskoka Lakes region which is beautiful cottage country!!
Parker had tried on her mothers custom silver ring which was custom made in Vancouver by an acclaimed artist. She put the ring in her baseball cap For safe keeping on a table on the dock. Forgetting it was there she put her baseball cap on and heard the ring hit the dock and felt it dropped into the water. There happens to also be a crib of rocks which supports the dock.
I headed up early early Canada Day morning and surprised the roads were not heavily travelled. Saw a doe with her two babies at the side of the road. Prepped and tested my dive gear As it was underneath the dock and about 6 to 8 feet deep in the location of the drop area. I did some searching and the visibility was poor at times after I used up one tank I came out of the water and asked Parker if she actually heard the ring hit the water after hitting the deck which she did hear. She said no, then I suggested we start checking in between the dock boards.
Parker’s Mother let out a loud scream “oh my God, here it is!” Sure enough there was the ring stuck in between the two dock boards underneath a table where Parker’s grandfather sat when I arrived!
Here is a short video;
Asking as many questions as possible is very important to figuring out where the loss item could be! I always learn for every recovery!
Parker and her mother were very happy to see the beautiful custom ring back!! They were very generous in a donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation! I have a “PAY-IT-FORWARD” campaign which I use my metal/scuba dive detecting hobby to raise money for this wonderful charity in assisting patients financially!!
Thank you very much Parker & Mom for contacting me, for your kind hospitality and for your generous donation!!
Mass & Joanne were at their Friends cottage on beautiful Stewart Lake in Mactier, Ontario in the Township of Georgian Bay in absolutely breathtaking Muskoka Region.
They were enjoying a lovely day on the dock when they heard a click and a clang. Mass realized his 18k yellow/white gold wedding band had slipped off his finger, hit the deck and dropped into the water below.
They searched that day with no luck. They were up early to search the next morning with again no luck. Joanne googled “how to find a lost ring” and “THE RING FINDERS” directory came up. We traded emails throughout the week and set a date and time!
I arrived and shortly after Joanne and the cottage owners arrived! We brought all my gear down and here’s how it went….
It too 22 seconds to hear “that” distinctive gold tone on my Minelab Excalibur2… Then 36 seconds to get safety get under the dock to grasp the wedding band amongst the debris!!
Happy to help this couple out and grateful their charitable donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation!! PAYING IT FORWARD!! Thank you Mass & Joanne!
Had a message come in through the ring finders site from Ellen after she had google lost ring.
Ellen & Stephen was recently married on their lovely property by the waters of Port Carling, Ontario. She had asked her Son Andrew to be the Best Man and surprised him with his late Grand Father’s wedding band. After the nuptials, Andrew decides to go for a swim to cool down but the ring had slipped off his finger to the murky bottom. Two days later he advised his Mother the devastating news. I met Ellen & Stephen two days later on the property. They had advised the ring was in 3′ to 4′ of water… it was just over 5′ up to my ears. I had the tone with my Minelab Excalibur 2 in just 5 minutes but it took another 8 minutes to scoop the ring out between sticks and boards.
This sentiMental Heirloom 10k white/14k yellow late Grandfather’s wedding band is back were it belongs…with FAMILY !! Pleasure to meet this Family and thanks to
Here is the video from this ring recovery & return!!
Another donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation greatly received for my “Pay-it-forward” fundraising campaign!!
