Hilton Head Island, South Carolina is known for being a place where people who like to find things have some great luck. Hilton Head Island hides all sorts of treasures underneath that murky water, from civil war memorabilia to Megalodon teeth. 

At least twenty different species of sharks call Hilton Head Island home. 

Port Royal Sound is thought to be a popular breeding region for great white sharks as well, and historically, Megalodons swam right through the low country before it was low! 


With all of this shark activity and history it is no wonder shark teeth are scattered about Hilton Head Island. However, these teeth are not easy to find unless you have invented a device that makes it possible to see under the murkiest of water. 


If you want to find sharks teeth in Hilton Head, you have to put on your dive gear, sink to the dark bottom of the water, and then feel through the mud until you feel something that might be a shark tooth. Owning a Megalodon tooth can be a bragging right, but getting your finger caught in a stone crab’s claw is probably not worth the risk!
