We took my two boys 5 & 6 for two days. They had the best time. We found all kinds of fossils not to mention hundreds of sharks teeth. A few megalodon teeth as well. Fred was so knowledgable. Knew what everything we found was and the private tour was worth the extra money. He even dug for my boys... More

I booked a july 7th canoe trip with fred after stumbling across his tours via youtube. I drove us up fron Bonita Springs which as about a two hour trip but it was totally worth the price and time! We ended up going into a Paynes creek state park, where we met up with Fred and launched our canoe. It... More

We went out with Fred on a mid-week sharks tooth excursion with my wife and two kids (10 & 7). We had a great time finding all sorts of sharks teeth (over 500 in total). My daughter found a full megladon tooth that was about 2-3 inches in length and I found a 1/2 a megladon tooth as well. We... More

We had the best time with Fred. If you are looking for something unique to do with the family it is worth the time and cost. What am experience pulling river sand dollars and different extinct animals teeth out of the water. Awesome experience. WE WILL BE BACK FRED! !!

Blown away by our adventure with Fred. We drove down from Ponte Vedra Beach to fossil hunt and this trip did not disappoint. There were ten of us in all (2 families with kids ranging from 5-10) and not a single one of us wanted to leave when the day was done. Fred's knowledge of the area was incredible, his... More

Hard to believe that we already did this a week ago. Experience was truly amazing minus my son deciding to stand up in the canoe and cause us to flip in the beginning. Once we got to our destination the true fun began! Fred was absolutely amazing and offered a wealth of knowledge about the fossil history and surrounding area.... More

This tour was the highlight of our trip to Vero for both my husband and myself! We met Fred and followed him to the site and canoed down the river to spots that he had already scouted out. All we needed to bring was a lunch and sunscreen - Fred provided everything else. After a crash course on where to... More

Another fantastic day fossil digging with Fred from Paleo Discoveries. He took us threw a creek that was breath taking on conoe's to a spot and after he checked it out, off went to dig. He supplied all the equipement and showed us everything we need to know to successfully dig for different pre historic teeth and at times small... More

Our family has been out on two trips with Fred Mazza and we have had tons of fun finding all sorts of fossils. Fred does a great job working with the kids (and adults) and makes the day a fun learning experience. Compared to the big theme parks you cannot go wrong spending the day on the river with Fred...
