Coastal Fossil Hunt
June 24, 2023
Mount Pleasant, SC
The barrier islands around Charleston Harbor have some of the richest deposits of ancient shark teeth, fossils, sea shells, and colonial artifacts in the country. Join Captain Zach for the day as we venture out to Morris Island and spend time combing the sands for these relics. Enjoy possible encounters with some unique coastal wildlife like Strand-feeding Dolphins and endangered shorebirds like Least Terns & Wilson’s Plovers. On a good day you can walk away with more than 100 Teeth! Common teeth found belong to ancient Great Whites, Makos, Tiger, Bull, Hammers, and more. You might get lucky enough and find a Megalodon Tooth; it’s been known to happen!
