What you'll do

We will meet at the location and review safety concerns and what species of shark teeth you might find. We will then walk out to the desired location and start our search! If you don't find at least 3 teeth, it's free! You may book a private group so that nobody else can join your group, but I definitely welcome more than one group if someone else has already booked. Due to the nature of the tides and weather, we may have to update the times and/or dates as necessary. If the tides are too high, it can be dangerous to make our way to the best hunting spots. However, if that is the only time that you can make it then we can hunt in other areas safely. Please be aware we are hunting near to towering cliffs and climbing/walking over slippery surfaces. I will do my best to escort you safely so we may have to avoid certain areas to maintain a safe experience.

Jonathan

Being a local, I know the best spots and times to find the best shark teeth. I have been on many trips and have found over 1000 teeth and fossils ranging from pencil tip size to about 2 inches. I have been to all of the local museums and done research to learn the different species that the fossils belong to, along with history on how the cliffs were formed and why there are so many teeth present. I will assist you as much as you need in finding and identifying the many types of fossils the cliffs hold. I also know the tide schedules and when recent storms happened, which means I know when the best times to go are and where to look. Also, please let me know if there is a date you are interested in that is not on the calendar as I may be able to make it available for you.

What's included

Drinks
Water bottles
Equipment
Rake made for getting the teeth onto the beach, and bags to collect the fossils if you don't have your own.

Where you'll be

You'll walk next to the huge Calvert Cliffs (up to 80 feet high) formation overlooking the beautiful Chesapeake Bay and find teeth that are millions of years old from the cliffs! You may have to climb over, around or under trees and rocks. Depending on the tides and weather, we may have to look in various areas.
