Shark Tooth and Fossil Hunting

Looking for things to do on Hilton Head Island? Check out Captain Buddy's Trip Details. 1

One of our best and most popular trips! We depart Calhoun Street fishing pier with low tide approaching and embark on a journey to "Shark Tooth Island" where hundreds of fossils of long extinct Mammals, Reptiles, Fish, Corals, Birds, and yes, of course, SHARK TEETH await us. Anyone can take you to Shark Tooth Island if they know they way. But are they able to identify the fossils that litter the are as well as the shark teeth? Our guids are trained to help you every step of the way. From being able to locate the specimens to being able to identify them as long as they haven't been too chewed up by Megalodon! Captain Buddy's favorite trip awaits you, but don't delay! Please keep in mind that this trip will involve a bit of physical prowess and you WILL get your feet muddy! Water shoes are highly recommended. Please do NOT bring shovels or sifters. It is ILLEGAL to dig for fossils in South Carolina. We can let the waves erosion do our work for us! Check out our online booking calendar for availability. THANKS AGAIN!!

Disappearing Island Shell Hunting

The Low Country of South Carolina has very extreme tides. During our low tides, we have the rare opportunity to take visitors out to one of our amazing geographical sites, Disappearing Island. At high tide, this island is completely under water. When it is exposed, one can find many different species of shells, sand dollars, starfish, and a plethora of other sea creatures. We would love to take you out and see this amazing place. We will help you search and identify the creatures you find. Enjoy the views of Hilton Head Island, Dolphin, local birds, and the Intracoastal Water along the way. Don't forget your camera and sunscreen!
