Is there gold on the ocean floor?

Yes, there is gold in the ocean.
Ocean waters do hold gold, but it's difficult to say exactly how much. The ocean, however, is deep, meaning that gold deposits are a mile or two underwater. And once you reach the ocean floor, you'll find that gold deposits are also encased in rock that must be mined through.

How do you hide gold from a metal detector?

10 Hiding Spots for Gold and Silver
Dig a hole 3-4 feet deep and bury your stash. Fill the dirt back in, and at 1-2 feet deep, bury a few miscellaneous items. That way if a metal detector is used, most likely the thief will stop/give up after digging up the items closer to the surface.
