Easter Fossil Hunts, Rock Pooling & Dinosaur Walks 2014

Fossil Hunting Trips

Join us for a two hour fossil hunting trip along Cayton Bay or the southern part of Robin Hoods Bay starting at Boggle Hole.  These events are suitable for all the family as the access is very easy. We do suggest wellies  or stout shoes but we supply everything else.  Each trip is different, but we should find a wide range of fossils from the Jurassic, around 160 – 180 million years ago.
