We will make a trip out to our beautiful "Secret Shark Tooth" beach for exploring for fossils and whatever treasures we can find. We will all meet up at the Ft Pulaski entrance before the bridge, right beside Hwy 80. (You will need $3 to get in. Or you can buy a year pass for $10 and everyone (up to 3 adults) in your car, everytime you visit, gets in for free.) Then we will all go together, to where we will launch our boats from.

SORRY, BUT YOU CAN'T COME IF YOU HAVE NEVER KAYAKED BEFORE. IF YOU HAVE PADDLED BEFORE THEN PLEASE COME. MAKE SURE TO SIGN THE DISCLAIMER ON OUR MEETUP IN YOUR QUESTIONS UNDER YOUR PROFILE & LEAVE YOUR PHONE NUMBER TO REACH YOU BY IN CASE WE NEED TO CONTACT YOU.

You must write in the sign up box if you need to book one of our kayaks or if you are bringing your own kayak. Please write your phone number down when signing up, THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT, I MUST HAVE A PHONE #, IF NECESSARY TO CONTACT YOU.


Please bring lots of water, sun protection and a bagged lunch. You'll be hungry!

This is a secret spot so you must promise to keep it as such, if you choose to come. We thank you in advance for this code of secrecy.


We will be out for several hours so bring lots of water, food and sun protection. This paddle is not for beginners. It is an easy paddle but not for first time kayakers. We always find large FOSSILIZED shark's teeth or woolly mammoth bones each time we go. I found a huge one almost 4 inches long and 3 inches wide in perfect shape. Another one 2 1/2 inches long and we have found lots of little ones. Even an amazing 4-5 inch long spear head in mint shape.

We will have a few kayaks, paddles & PFD's available to rent for $35 for the day, if needed.

We will be out most of the day. Returning by 4 at the latest. Hope you can join us. We do not accept checks or credit cards. Please bring cash only. No one else charges as little as us for the adventures we offer! We promise!

If you are coming with your own kayak and equipment, it will be a $15 fee to join us on this exciting adventure and treasure hunting trip! Please remember when signing up to write your phone # and that you have your own kayak in the little white comment box. When clicking yes to come, it will appear. Thanks.

These fossils are up to 23 million years old!

Carcharocles (Carcharodon) Megalodon
Giant Prehistoric Shark
This Prehistoric Carnivorous Fish was the pinnacle of shark evolution. Carcharocles (Carcharodon) megalodon, an apex predator, comes from the Greek word for “big tooth” or "giant tooth". This shark was as gigantic as a bus at a length of 60 feet (18.5 M) and estimated to have weighed between 60-75 tons.

Their prehistoric shark skeletons were made of cartilage, like those of modern sharks. This resulted in poor to no fossilization of their skeletons and therefore is not found in the Florida fossil record.

Almost exclusively known from its giant fossil teeth, no complete fossils have been found to date. Only a rare few single vertebrae have been discovered. The largest tooth ever discovered measured 7.25 inches in slant length.

Most experts believe it is closely related to the Great White Shark in looks and form, but much more larger.

This Monster Shark ate whales, fish, and other marine mammals. The colossal beast had massive jaws, and may have consumed as much as 2,500 pounds of food per day.

This Giant Marine Predator lived 23 Million Years ago and went extinct about 1.8 Million Years ago. The Giant Prehistoric Shark lived in all of the world’s oceans and was the largest predator.


Fort Pulaski is located on a island off Hwy 80 on the way to Tybee Island on your left, about a mile before the bridge to Tybee Island . You will see me with the truck loaded with kayaks. I will wait for you there.

Please be early as we will want to all head out together.

    It was fun paddling with the big guys, huge container ships sailing in and out. It was a challenging paddle but it was so interesting with wildlife and driftwood and rocks, not to mention the fossils that several of us found! The horseshoe crabs huddled in the beach was a first, since I usually see only the empty shell upside down on the beach. The super high tides helped make this trip a success. Thanks for guiding this trip Beverly.
