Evaluation

*Average:    3.79
It took me 3 trips and about 9 dives before I broke 100 teeth per trip with a 3 dive trip, but I finally did it. It took my girlfriend 2 trips and 4 dives to break 100 so I guess you know who has the eye. We dove off the public beach with great parking. You just need to be there by 8am to get a spot. The walk to the water was a little long but worth the effort and the vis was between 10-15 foot until you stirred the water up, so a little current was nice. Don't waste your air if you're looking for teeth until you get to the swim area buoy line where the water is about 14 feet deep and a line of 4 foot square blocks runs up and down the beach about 20 yards west of the buoy line. We found a lot of teeth and fish around these blocks where the current moved the sand. Use a flag on every team or every diver if the vis is bad and go up and down to keep track of your buddy. We found several kinds of teeth as well as other fossils. A great collecting trip if you want to have something to take home, also if you dive in season the stone crab are in every hole you find and taste sooo good after a long day. Enjoy!
