S01 E23 – Fishing For More Treasures After Hurricane Ian Metal Detecting New Smyrna Beach

Stuff Found on this episode


Part 1 of 2. See damaged sea walls and our non-stop finding items buried deep in the sand. Hurricane Ian cut the sand down quite a bit to reveal treasures buried and removed a lot of the dunes along the edge of the beach.

Hurricane Ian / Tropical Storm Ian pummels Florida and drops rain that is considered a “1000 year rain occurrence”. The Detecting Duo +1 headed down to the beach to see how New Smyrna Beach changed after the storm and try to find older treasures on the beach.

In this treasure hunt we were able to find two silver rings, a nice chain bracelet and a variety of coins that have been on the beach for a while. An evening to night time treasure hunt on New Smyrna Beach as we find treasures in both the wet and dry sand areas. Always interesting things are found!

New Smyrna Beach Florida is the shark bite capital of the world and one of the best beaches we love to hunt.
