Fossil Ledge

The fossil ledge is known for its large quantity of sharks teeth and whale bones. A lot of Megalodon and other various sharks teeth litter the bottom. There are also a bunch of fossil whale bones including ribs and huge vertebrae. Some spots of the fossil ledge have been searched thouroghly so the amount of teeth vary greatly from site to site. I've seen a few teeth over 6.5 inches come off the site. Back in the early days divers were finding over a hundred teeth per trip but those times are gone. Some areas of the fossil ledge are the prettiest ledges in SE North Carolina so even if teeth are no where to be found it can still be an incredible dive.
