A huge fossil bed offshore from Venice, full of fossil shark teeth, manatee ribs, whale bones, stingray stingers and bite plates, occasional horse teeth, and if you're lucky- megalodon teeth! The bottom surface varies from black fossil coral to tan sand, and the fossils you're looking for are black. Stirring up the bottom to find fossils can quickly destroy visibility, so you should try to hover a foot or so off the bottom and keep slowly moving as you stir up sediment. Keep an eye on your compass heading so you can find your way back to the boat. The bottom here is about 25-30 feet. The visibility is not great, and there is not a lot of life to see, so come for the fossils!
