What to expect:
Tour length: 2 hours
Capacity: 6 people
Rec. Ages: 4+
Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your Adventure. The boat departs promptly at the trip start time.
Come board the boat with Captain Ash as we set out to one secluded island covered in shark teeth and even more fossils, including but certainly not limited to:
sea turtle shell fragments
fossilized shark poop! (aka coprolites)
Ice Age remains (horse teeth, mammoth ivory, armadillo bones, and more!)
many other remains from extinct species up to 30 million years old!
General Tour Structure: Groups will receive 1.5 hours of fossil hunting time during the Adventure. Unlike our 2 and 3 Island Adventures, there will be no fossil identification session at the end of the 1 Island Adventure trips. Instead, fossil sorting containers will be available for purchase during booking so you may sort your finds during the trip after Ashby identifies them for you. Once we arrive back to the landing you can arrange final merchandise purchases or custom jewelry and fossil polishing orders.
Our style of fossil hunting is surface collecting. The water has done the sorting for us, uncovering new fossils every 12 hours. No digging or sifting takes place at all. Not only is that illegal in SC, but it's less efficient for these types of localities. Knee pads are provided for your comfort!
This cruise takes place on an open air boat. As such, we encourage you to be prepared for all weather types.
REQUIRED: closed-toe, laced shoes. We recommend an old pair of tennis shoes you don't mind getting wet and muddy.
Recommended items to bring:
Cell phone camera
Readers/Rx glasses for up close viewing
Weather appropriate clothing
Oct-April: Warm layers strongly recommended during faster boat speeds.
