The Cooper River…
…offers divers the unique experience of searching the bottom of the river for giant megalodon fossilized shark teeth, whale fossils, mastodon fossils and many other fossils. There is also a great opportunity here for the treasure hunters searching for Indian artifacts, Colonial artifacts, antique bottles, Revolutionary & Civil War relics. We also offer quality books for fossil and shark teeth identification, as well as books about The Megalodon, right here on the website.
Many of the fossils have been documented to be millions of years old.
The Cooper River is close to many attractions including The Hunley Museum, The Mepkin Abbey, Cypress Gardens, South Carolina Aquarium, and historic Charleston, SC. The wildlife is great for the photographer enthusiast, and bird watchers.
When choosing an operator for your Cooper River adventure be sure to confirm your boat will have shade from the sun (or at least sunblock), liability insurance, O2 and that the operator of the boat has a current Captain’s license. If in doubt ask to see proof of insurance and Captain’s license.
