Yorkshire Fossil Hunting Tours

Our "Fossil Hunting Tours" have been designed for families, beginners and enthusiasts to show you how to find fossils in a safe and responsible manner.
All our tours take place on the North Yorkshire coastline around the seaside fishing port of Whitby.
The trips are very tide dependant. As such we have designed these trips based on the best possible tidal times. These "good" tide times only occur every other week.
Due to the distances and terrain it can be unsuitable for very small children and those with certain medical conditions. Please check the suitability sections of each tour to find out more.
This year we are running tours to the following locations more specific information about our trips can be found on our booking pages.
