Featured on The Travel Channel — twice — as part of their series called “Cash and Treasures,” Fossil Expeditions in Florida offers the perfect adventure to take on a warm afternoon with the entire family … especially if you’re interested in hunting for shark, mammal and reptile fossils!
These guided Florida fossil tours take place in the Peace River, about an hour and a half north of Sanibel Island, making it an ideal day trip for those who want to try something a little “different.”
When you sign up for a trip from Fossil Expeditions in Florida, you’ll enjoy the day collecting real fossils from the Peace River, and a professional guide will teach you more about how these natural treasures came to be. It’s like exploring Florida’s ancient past, hidden within the beds of one of the most famous rivers in the state.
