Sandsend – Private Hire Fossil Safari


Date(s) - 3 March 2023 - 31 December 2024
10:00 am - 6:30 pm



Sandsend is an often overlooked fossil location, as the main beach and cliff sites are unproductive during most conditions. Step away from these sites and there’s some very interesting things to be found and seen, including jet and alum mines, and some of the most productive locations for Harpoceras ammonites, marine reptiles and Jet. Private tour itineraries include the pyrite fossil localities around Sandsend Ness and the long but spectacular itinerary to Kettleness. These private tours are tailored to the specific abilities, timings and objectives of each group and always consider the specific access requirements of this location, with consideration for extreme weather events.

Due to monthly tidal variations, it is not always possible to embark on fossil hunts, particularly during winter hours.

Private tours costs are

1-6 people – 3 hour itinerary = Cost £165

7-11 people  – 3 hour itinerary = Cost £250

12-16 people  – 3 hour itinerary = Cost £350

(Additional hours available at an additional cost of £30 per hours)
