Screen sift or snorkel in one of Florida’s shallow rivers or streams, find remains of ancient sharks, whales, dolphins, fish, saber-tooth cats, jaguars, mammoths, mastodons, camels, tapirs, horses, sloths, giant armadillos and much more.
Join us and discover your own piece of history– one that you can actually hold in your hand! Unlike a fishing trip, you’ll always come home with something- these day trips are safe, fun and educational. Experience genuine Florida eco-tourism.
We offer walk-in or canoe fossil tours. These tours generally take place on the Peace River in the towns of Zolfo Springs, Wauchula, and Arcadia and are approx. 1 hr east from Sarasota. [Learn More]
Our purpose is to educate and create a sense of appreciation for Florida’s paleontological history. Programs strive to be both fun and educational. Question and answer sessions to further explore related topics in geology and archaeology are always encouraged. [Learn More]
Fossils, display materials, shirts, books and more. Many of the products featured on our online store are available during our tours- just ask! How about a gift certificate for someone special? [Visit Fossil Store Now]
