Fossil Collecting Tours

Tour Options


We guide you to the beautiful beach at Flag Ponds Nature Park located on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay where you will find your very own 15 million-year-old fossils! You'll be the first person in the world to ever see and hold these amazing fossils.

You'll be transported back in time to when this area was covered by a vast ocean and was teeming with life. Along the way we will see a fantastic diversity of trees, flowers, and wildlife. The occasional otter and bald eagle may be seen on our trips.

All tours can be customized to fit your needs. If you want to make adjustments to our options available or you want to book a large group just send us an email or give us a call and we'd be happy to help you!
