Shark Tooth Seminar and Dive

Venice Dive Center will be hosting a Shark Tooth Seminar and Dive.  Venice, Florida is known as the “Shark’s Tooth Capital of the World” due to the millions of shark teeth that wash up on our sandy, white beaches.  There is even a Shark Tooth Festival held April 10th-12th. And while finding these amazing gems along the shore is incredible, how would it feel to actually find one yourself on the bottom of the ocean?

Each day, Ben Schultz, local fossil expert, dives down to discover more teeth and fossils beneath the surface.  Ben has spent countless hours below and has a wealth of knowledge that he will be sharing with friends of Venice Dive Center for 2 free special events.

Ben Schultz, Local Fossil Expert, Shark Tooth Seminar and Dive

Join us on Wednesday, February 24th at 7:00 for the Shark Tooth Seminar as Ben explains what types of fossils can be found off of Venice and Nokomis shores and why.  He will also discuss techniques for finding teeth.  Doors will open at 6:30.  Registration for the Shark Tooth Seminar and Dive is preferred.  Please call 941-497-5985.

On Saturday, February 27th at 8:00, join us for a DONUT DIVE.  Ben will be leading the Shark Tooth Fossil Dive off Service Club Park Beach, 1190 S. Harbor Drive.  Ben will take divers to a dive spot where there are fossils.  New found knowledge can be put to the test as divers work to find fossils for themselves. Registration for the free Shark Tooth Seminar and Dive is preferred.  Please call 941-497-5985. Feel free to come to one or both of the classes. Gear, tanks and airfills not included.

*A minimum of Open Water Certification is required for the Beach Dive. Venice Dive Center has rental gear and air tanks available as early as Friday a.m. if needed on a first come first serve basis, but please arrange for pick up prior to Saturday’s 8:00am dive.

3 Reasons to have a SaleJoin Venice Dive Center as we CELEBRATE!  3 years ago , 2012, the current owners purchased the Venice Scuba Quest store, renaming it “Scuba Quest of Venice”.  At the one year anniversary, May 2013, the shop changed it’s name to Venice Dive Center.  Last year, on the 2 year anniversary, the shop moved to it’s current location at 902 S Tamiami Trail in Nokomis.

A lot may have changed in a matter of 3 years, but the essence and adoration for Scuba Diving and the ocean has not.  The staff at Venice Dive Center strives to bring you the experience you have come to expect, the equipment you depend on, and the comradery to share in your passion.

Artificial Reefs: Benefitting the Aquatic Life and Recreational Fishing and Diving Industry

Sarasota and the local Gulf Coast has a variety of scuba diving opportunities. Have you explored the many Artificial Reefs established in the area?

Artificial reefs have been constructed in Sarasota County to increase and enhance recreational fishing and scuba diving areas as well as to create and restore marine habitat lost to coastal development. Remember to use proper catch and release fishing practices. Funding for the construction of artificial reefs comes from the Florida Artificial Fishing Reef Grant, Saltwater Fishing License fees, the Sarasota Bay National Estuary Program, Sarasota County Coastal Resources, Eternal Reefs, Inc. and private donations.
