Fossil Dig Adventure Tours

Fossil Dig Tours

Now accepting Bookings!

The Fossil Dig Adventure Tours have had an immense success rate for finding fossils since 2008!

If you like adventure and hands on experiences, then consider the following Fossil Dig Adventure Tour programs. This is one of Manitoba's hottest tourism products!

Participate in one of Manitoba's hottest summer programs. Our specialty is hunting for fossils, finding fossils and collecting fossils.

Some people call our fossils dinosaurs, but we call them marine reptiles! Our fossils are from the ancient Western Interior Seaway, from the late Cretaceous period. Do you know the difference? Do you know that Manitoba was submersed with a shallow salt water seaway for millions of years?

We operate approximately 30 active dig sites in the Morden area.
