Jake Koehler, better known on YouTube as DALLMYD, lives and breathes to dive and explore new destinations in search of lost valuables, and because of that he will be honored with the “Visionary Award” at this year’s Beneath the Sea dive show.
Treasure hunting caught Koehler’s eye a few years ago, so he took a GoPro action camera on dives of the rivers and lakes around where he lives. In doing so, he discovered the many odd things that people lose or throw away.
Koehler began creating cool videos of his discovery dives and posting them to YouTube, which in turn attracted hundreds of thousands of viewers around the world. The video that made his mark was finding an iPhone and returning it to its owner. In fact, a lot of the stuff he finds he tries to return.
So far, Koehler’s YouTube channel has amassed nearly seven million subscribers and his videos have been viewed more than 600 million times. Check out one of his videos below.
Beneath the Sea will take place March 29-30, 2019 at the Meadowlands Convention Center in Secaucus, New Jersey. For more info, go to beneaththesea.org.
