My grandchildren had a wonderful time exploring on folly beach. Ashby was wonderful and very patience with my 3 year old that he let tag along. The weather wasn’t great but we had a great time in spite of it. Thanks again

This adventure was off of the charts awesome! My kids had a great time, and I had an even better time. They liked it more than Disney World. Found fossils, bones and teeth. The amount of knowledge that Ashby has (and shares) is phenomenal. Felt like I should have received college credit for the afternoon. Well worth the price of admission, can't wait to go back. I'll probably see him 2 or 3 times a year. Can't say enough good things about the adventure. Cheers.

My family of four (kids ages 9 and 12) enjoyed our fossil hunting experience. We found interesting fossils and were able to use the knowledge we gained to find even more during the rest of our vacation.

We did a half day Edisto Beach adventure with the owner Ashby. We got amazing, sunny weather in mid-February for a lovely walk down the beach and a search for fossils and sharks teeth. Ashby’s knowledge, enthusiasm, and keen eye were all infectious. Before you know it you will start picking up every little black thing you find on the beach and asking Ashby what it is! Everyone else on the beach not in our group either knew him by sight or came over to ask him about their finds! I got my first shark tooth ever and collectively we found fossilized turtle shell, animal bone, fish bone, shark’s teeth, and more (see photo) and now we have to figure out how to display what we found at home. We had an educational and fun time and will definitely look to book one of his upcoming kayak or boat tours. Don’t forget your sunscreen particularly in the winter when you might not otherwise wear any!

We had a wonderful time searching for fossils on Edisto Beach. It included a three mile walk on the beach with allowed us to get our exercise in while learning so much about the area and the different fossils. Highly recommend.
