​Your Guide

Hello and welcome to Coastal Fossil Adventures LLC located near Jacksonville & St. Augustine, Florida!

Fossil collecting is addictive.   Very Addictive and Very Fun.   For over 40 years, I have hunted the fossils of the Southeastern United States and spent the last 25 + years making Florida my home.   Florida spoils the fossil collector with its rich abundance of the remains of really old dead animals; in particular, fossil shark teeth.   It would be my great pleasure to share these fossil riches with you.   Either walking along the beach in very limited access areas or exploring by kayak, you are sure to love the adventure.   I will teach you the techniques for finding fossils and help you to identify them.   You will also learn about the animals that once lived here and the environment they called home.   As an added bonus, I promise to only throw in a few bad jokes along the way.   But remember my warning, fossil collecting is addictive and you may get hooked for life!
