Ring finders,
My family and I visited St Pete Beach in June and I lost my wedding ring in the ocean . We spent about an hour looking for it and wife was super pissed at me. I happened to give my information to a gentleman who was going to be staying there longer than us. We were on our way back to Chicago about a week later and we got a call with the great news your group found my ring. Thanks so much! The ring would never be replaced.

Mike was amazing! He was a total stranger to me yet he drove for an hour to where i was and went into mucky water under a dock and found it! I will be forever grateful to him. Thank you Mike Miller!
These guys are legit. Found my brother-in-law’s ring at Mad Beach within 2 hours of our calling. Couldn’t believe it! Truly amazing. Thanks guys!!
On Oct 11th I was playing volleyball on Clearwater beach and my bracelet snapped sending little sterling silver balls EVERYWHERE in the sand. I spotted two men in the distance with metal detectors and thought it was worth asking them for assistance locating the pieces of this sentimental bracelet. Mike and Bill happily walked over with me to the volleyball courts and spent at least 30 min searching the sand successfully locating every single piece of my bracelet. I’m so grateful to these two kind men who made my day. Thank you so much for all you do!! Thanks,

- Peg
