Venice beach is a nice place to get shark teeth just past the pier...

Google up the "regina" its a pretty decent shore dive off of anna maria beach. Its a sunken sugar barge. My boyfriend and I have done it a few times. We saw a Goliath Grouper once.

Yes my friends have talked about that wreck... off Anna Maria Island. Unfortunately when I was living there I did not have my scuba certification. I plan on going this December. Anna Maria Island is a great little beach town. Some good places to eat are Ocean Star, Omas Italian, and of course the popular Ed Chiles Corporation which include Beach House, Sandbar, and Mar Vista. I used to work at the Beach House they’ve got an awesome view of the gulf and live entertainment every night.
