Martin began with a fun but comprehensive learning session and safety talk. Armed with our new knowledge we then hit the beach to try to find a few fossils. The time spent beforehand was time well spent as we knew exactly what to look for and where. I’d definitely recommend anyone interested in finding a fossil to book in with Martin. Make sure you wear sturdy footwear and take a rucksack for all your finds !

Great fun and so interesting and amazing value for money! Martin was brilliant passing on some of his wealth of knowledge and experience. We all found fossils and walking along a beach has been changed forever! I had seen that most reviews had mentioned that it was great for children but we are four adults and absolutely loved this! Thank you so much Martin!

Had a really great time with Martin who managed to make us feel like "Pro" fossil hunters in just a few hours. Definitely recommended to anyone who is visiting the Jurassic Coast and wants to have fun learning more about the treasures it hides.

Fantastic and fun for kids and adults. Very informative and Martin taught us very simple techniques to help us remember what to look for. Love his helpers Bob, Jeff, Chris, Beth and Peter. He also made sure we found a decent collection of fossils which we did. We are very pleased and looking forward to coming back to fossil hunt on our own in the winter months.
