What you'll do
We will start out about a mile from the beach, so some walking and hiking will be necessary. There will be a field to walk through along with downed trees to climb over and under. Once we hike through the trail, we will arrive at the beach where we will need to cross a creek. The water will never go above your chest, so no swimming will be necessary. This also means that unless you have hip or chest waders this experience is only available from the beginning of April through the end of September.
Jonathan's commitment to safety
- Identity verified
I have spent the past 2+ years learning and practicing finding fossils and shark teeth as well as learning about them in depth. I am able to identify the fossils you find as well as give you the history of why and how the fossils are there. I live 20 minutes away in Chesapeake Beach, and fossil hunt there as much as I can. I will take you to cliffs that have no easy public access, giving you a unique look at these cliffs and a better chance for a great find.
Where you'll be
We will be heading through an unmarked trail to a section of the Calvert Cliffs, which are a 30 mile stretch of cliffs that are only accessible in certain spots for fossil hunting. I will be guiding you to a portion of the beach and cliffs that is not easily accessed or well known by the public, so you will have a greater chance of finding a unique fossil.
Expert industry partners
Every adventure follows industry guidelines. We partnered with the Adventure Travel Trade Association, expert leaders in adventure travel, to define best practices and standards for safety.
