My husband and I spent 2 days digging with Patrick and had a blast. He is very personable, professional and knowledgeable about the area and what we were unearthing. We came home with some treasures including a horse's tooth! Great adventure!!

Although I didn’t hunt with you, we were hunting near you and your group. You overheard it was my sons 7th birthday and that all he wanted was to find his first Meg so not only did you personally hand him a nice Meg frag but also a horse tooth! That really made his day and fueled his determination so a few minutes after you left he found one on his own!

Been on three different trips with Patrick over last 14 months and they have all been a great experience. All have been on a tributary of the Peace River (due to a myriad of circumstances from water depth, flow, clarity) and they all have been unique and awesome! He knows where the great places are—places very few others spend time at. He’s always out on his own, when he’s not with groups, doing his research and scouting. If I lived in Florida, I’d book him once a week. Will you always find a Megalodon tooth? Nope. But you’ll find plenty of other shark teeth—maybe even other rare fossils—like mastodon or mammoth teeth, nurse shark teeth, other mammal fossils, etc. If you have kids, they will love him. He’s so good at helping them find and identify fossils—and maybe he’ll corral and catch a live fish for them to check out as well! Book with Patrick. You’ll have a 5-star experience.
