It is with a heavy heart that I have to inform everyone of Alan’s tragic passing. Unfortunately Alan was lost at sea in the Port Royal Sound area April 28.

The US Coast Guard, DNR, Beaufort County search and rescue and not to mention many of Alan’s friends in their personal boats searched for him almost 6 days before the Coast Guard suspended the search. His body was found washed up on a deserted beach on Mother’s Day. Thank you to everyone who was a client/friend who helped my husband fulfil his dream of becoming a fossil dive captain.
Please keep our family in your prayers.

God bless you. – Kim Devier

Happy Hunter Testimonials

“What a day on the river…or I should say “in” the river. Thanks Captain Alan Devier for another awesome day! Not only did I find a 5 1/2 and 6 1/2 inch meg tooth (heartbreaker with a missing corner), I witnessed Justin Hurst bring up one or the rarest artifacts I’ve ever seen…a banner stone.”

“I have been interested in fossils ever since I was a kid and have been diving since a young age.  I never imagined that the two things could be combined!  After seeing Alan being featured in Johnathan Bird’s Blue World, I knew he was the man to make it happen.  His passion makes the whole thing so appealing and his knowledge of the creek makes it so worthwhile!  The diving itself is some of the most exciting and challenging I have ever done – very rewarding.  Thank you Alan, I WILL be back!”
