Had an emergency call from a girlfriend I hadn’t seen in a couple of years as she lost a very sentimental ring into a Georgian Bay lake in beautiful cottage country of Muskoka, Ontario. (respecting her privacy / area not to be named)
She tossed a line into the water to tow her SeaDoo back to the dock. Unfortunately her ring flew off her hand into 15’ of cold water. She had the smarts to immediately note two landmarks and called me immediately!
I was excited to head up to her location with brand new gear to test out along with finding her precious ring.
I made arrangements for the following weekend even though waters were roughly 12C. I met her at the marina and headed to her beautiful home!
All my gear was set up, checked and off I went with her as my spotter. My new DIve BLU3 Nomad Hookah system worked great alongside the new underwater metal detector the Nokta Makro “Legend”, and my underwater circular gridding tool.
On the 3rd outing after I moved my circular gridding tool closer to shore, I had a solid double tone! I was hoping this was it because I was starting to get cold! Second grasp of silty debris and I had the beautiful ring!! Now the surprise…
Check out the video;
I came up and handed over my gridding tool and detecting, went into her dock area and then the surprise!! Priceless! She was absolutely thrilled!!!
I am extremely grateful for the incredible donation she made to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation as well as her wonderful hospitality!
Dhawal & Khushi we’re visiting the beautiful Sibbald Point Provincial Park on the shores of Lake Simcoe for the very first time last Saturday!
Dhawal had applied sunscreen all over as well as his hand area. The group headed into the water, talking photos, swimming and splashing about. Dhawal then noticed his 22k engagement band was missing!
Another Ring Finder Stephane was called and re-directed Dhawal to me. I discussed with Dhawal that I needed Parks permission and proceeded to apply in writing as directed by the Parks Superintendent. We immediately heard back and we’re ready to attend the location after work!
Luckily the waters were calm on Lake Simcoe, started grid searching back and forth moving easterly. Found a pair of prescription reading glasses which I notified Parks office in hopes to return them to their rightful owner.
After a Parks Ranger stopped by and checked my credentials, 3 minutes later I had a solid 34 on the new Nokta Legend at 4” to 6” inches down! Then it was surprise time!!

Dhawal & Khushi we’re thrilled to have this incredible 10 gram 22K gold engagement ring back we’re it belongs!
John was walking his dog in a school yard park in Maple, Ontario yesterday. He stopped to brush his dog and noticed his new gold engagement 10k gold band from his Fiancé Christina went flying off.
He purchased a metal detector and had no luck finding his ring on his own.
After speaking with Shawn from Carry-all Canada Shawn suggested he contact Alison from the website TheRingFindersDotCom.
John reached out late this afternoon and I flew over on Hwy 407 to meet him within 45 minutes!
Proceeded to the area he felt he lost his ring and as I am a struck heavy grid searcher, I always start anywhere from 10’ to 30’ further back!
Sure enough and just under 1/2 a minute and…. BAM!!! A solid double tone on my new Nokta Makro “Legend” metal detector!!
Check out the video;
One very happy young man!! We immediately sent his Fiancé Christina a photo of him and his ring back on his finger where it belongs!
