Did a shore dive on 6/17/12 and the vis was the best we've ever experienced near shore at about 20+ feet. We walked in right in front of the yellow house with blue shutters on the north side of the pier and dropped down about 10 yards past the sandbar. The first thing we saw was a shell bed and lots of teeth about 1 inch in size. We swam west but didn't go past the buoy because vis was getting worse the farther we went out. We stayed at 17-20 ft depth. The winds were out of the west that day at about 8 MPH and the water was flat. There had been no swells for over 48 hrs. We did a 2nd tank because it was so good. Between my husband and me, we found almost 500 teeth and the largest was a 2 inch snaggletooth shark tooth.
