Description: This private 2 hour boat adventure is what Charleston is really all about...
This private 2 hour boat adventure is what Charleston is really all about! I'm a native captain, so we'll glide through the uncrowded backwaters of the most pristine estuaries in the country. We'll learn to harvest oysters, catch shrimp and identify local shore birds. Next, we'll find the Bottlenose Dolphins. Having them swim next to the boat is exciting, but if we find them feeding in the shallows it's spectacular! Our next destination is Morris Island where I'll teach you about its rich Civil War history as well as my own family ties to it. We'll then walk its shores looking for shells and artifacts as the sixth oldest lighthouse in the nation serves as our backdrop! So as you can see we have something for everybody on this trip. The dolphins are always here, the beach is loaded with shells, and if you listen hard enough you just may hear the roar of cannons from the past. So come on and join me! You never know what washed up the night before...

Cpt. Gresh was very knowledgeable and very accommodating. We enjoyed seeing the Dolphins feeding and found many beautiful shells on the beach. Although lighthouse was a short distance away, it was as close as possible. This is a great tour! A genuine local who loves the waters in and around Charleston.

What, I ask you, is better than a day on a boat? Nothing. The answer of course is NOTHING is better than a boat. Not a child's laughter, not the wind beneath my wings, not a puppy belly--ok well maybe a puppy belly. But boating is right up there! And if you're in Charleston, Captain Gresh is the guy to...

This very unique boating excursion out to Morris Island consists of more than just an average trip out in a boat. Captain Gresh was full of amazing historic facts on the area as well as knowledge of interesting sea life. Our group consisted of myself, my husband, our two girls ages 16 and 10 and my two parents. Everyone absolutely... More

Our family of 5 of all ages had a fantastic time with Capt Gresh. It was the highlight of our vacation trip. Gresh clearly loves the area and knows so much that he willingly shares. Would do this again!

Captains knowledge is very impressive!!! We have been on many tours , 5 adults , 3 kids from the ages of ten to thirteen. They accommodated our group by taking out two boats each boat had a unique experience and learned different things, in other words it's not a hum drum repeat experience with these guys! Both captains were personable... More
