Ever wondered what hidden gems lie beneath the serene surface of a waterfall? Well, wonder no more!

In this thrilling video, our favorite river treasure hunter takes us on an exhilarating adventure as he dives into an Arizona waterfall with his trusty metal detector.

Spoiler alert: there’s an iPhone, rings, sunglasses, coins, and even a pocket knife involved!

Dive in with us as we break down the highlights of this incredible underwater treasure hunt.

The Journey Begins

The adventure kicks off with a rocky mile-long hike up to the waterfall. It’s no easy feat, with treacherous terrain and the constant threat of getting hit by passing kayakers. But our intrepid explorer is undeterred. As he suits up and dives into the turbulent waters, you can almost feel the excitement and anticipation build.

Unveiling the Treasures

Right off the bat, the underwater scenes are mesmerizing. There’s something oddly calming about watching someone uncover lost treasures from the depths. Among the first finds are a pair of vintage Body Glove sunglasses and a little bracelet inscribed with “ddb bears.” These discoveries, while fascinating, are just the appetizer for what’s to come.

The Jackpot: A Working iPhone 6s Plus

And then, the moment we’ve all been waiting for: the discovery of a working iPhone 6s Plus! Lost for nine months and buried eight inches deep in the sand, it’s a minor miracle that the phone, encased in a waterproof pouch, still powers on. The excitement is palpable as our diver carefully extracts the SIM card, manages to track down the owner, and arranges for its return.

A Heartwarming Reunion

Enter the phone’s owner, who is nothing short of ecstatic to be reunited with his long-lost device. His gratitude is so immense that he treats the entire Man + River crew to a lavish dinner. Watching the joy on Ahmed’s face is a touching reminder of the impact these recovered items can have on their owners.

The Thrill of the Hunt

But it’s not just about the treasures. The video captures the sheer thrill of the hunt, the beauty of underwater exploration, and the joy of unexpected discoveries. Our hero also finds a pristine pocket knife, some coins, and two rings – including a sleek tungsten carbide one. Each item tells a story, each discovery a new adventure.

Closing Thoughts

This underwater escapade under an Arizona waterfall is by far one of the most exciting river treasure dives we’ve seen. From the initial hike to the joyous reunion with the iphone’s owner, every moment is filled with excitement, surprise, and heartwarming human connections.
