Guide to Finding Sharks Teeth at Casey Key Resort | Gulf Shores Resort


Shark's Teeth are considered, 'the find' for many vacationers and beachcombers. They are actually quite easy to find by children and adults. It is not unusual to find several in a short amount of time.


Here's how...
Sand rakes come in convenient sizes for both children and adults, either plastic or metal works fine.

Step 1: Get the Right Sifter

Nokomis Beach Bait and Tackle (just a couple blocks away on Albee Rd.) will have what you’re looking for. Or most big stores like Walmart also carry them. Any sifter will do, some say the plastic hand-held ones are comfortable for children. Look for something sturdy that will resist permanent bends or break by scooping or with some weight of wet sand in it.


Step 2: Know What to Look For

Some are surprized to find that the pearly whites on sharks on tv are not what we are looking for in the water. Sharks teeth are usually black but also sometimes appear brown and come in many shapes and sizes. Most are about the size of a human thumbnail. Sometimes they will be chipped, or imperfect, so look really close.


Step 3: Look in the Right Places

Generally, there are two places to scour:

a. On shore along the seashell line is quite common. Some sharks teeth will be sitting among the seashells where the water left them at high tide. You won't find as many here.
b. Get adventurous and get into the water! Find the middle of the drop-off. Just a foot or two into the water, the sand contour suddenly drops a couple feet down. In the middle of the drop-off, use your sifter to grab a pile of sand. Then sift off the sand along the waterline to see if you're scooped a prize, see your shells and sharks teeth.
