B.Y.O.B. Island Adventure

Fossil Hunting in Charleston

B.Y.O.B. = Bring Your Own Boat!


Are you a boat owner in the Lowcountry? If so, then you have access to fossil sites that most residents can't visit. Take advantage of our best trip option for 2021: hire out a paleontologist to accompany you to these sites to discover more about the fossils you're collecting!

Ashby Gale has been a trusted guide in the Lowcountry for nearly a decade. This is your chance to hire Ashby as a guide to travel with you to fossil localities, on an hour-by-hour basis. Have a boat but no fossil site? No worries, Ashby will work with you on choosing a site that is accessible by boat, and picking the optimum time to visit.

Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to have a private, guided fossil hunting experience in Charleston. This tour may only be available for 2021, so book yours today!


Recommended Items: Water, sunscreen, water shoes or strapped sandals, raincoat/umbrella, snacks, camera/cell phone! And of course, your boat!

We supply collection pouches for you!

Due to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, in 2021 our trips are restricted to single family groups. This means we won't combine your family with another household on your trip.
