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... « less

I rarely write reviews even when nagged and yet Captain Gresh provided such a eclectic combination of comedy, history, and stories that I felt utterly compelled. I went on this excursion with some of my rowdy college friends (I dropped out of my freshmen college because they partied too hard for me) and expected complete debauchery. However, we were all...

I moved to Charleston just over a year ago and had some friends in town visiting last week. We had heard of Captain Gresh through another local and set up an afternoon for him to take us out around Folly, stopping at Morris Island. I was surprised at how much I didn't know about the place I had lived for... More

Captain Gresh took 6 of us out to Morris Island this past week. It was a beautiful Day! The tour was so delightful. Captain Gresh had so much information about CHarleston, folly beach, and Morris Island. I've lived here for 9 years and was blown away by all the new history i had just learned about my local scene. We... More

My mom and I spent 4 days in the Charleston area. I have to say the trip to Morris Island was my favorite part. It was as if we were visiting a friend who took us out on his boat and showed us a part of the area most visitors don't get to see. In two hours we saw dolphins,... More

We visited Charleston in February and weren't planning on doing anything on the water since it was still kind of chilly. However, when our hotel concierge asked if we were interested in this tour my husband jumped at the chance. Gresh was extremely informational, interesting, and fun! He was so thoughtful to bring a sleeping bag for me to cover... More

Captain Gresh took 6 of us out for a ride this past Sunday to Morris Island. Was blown away by how informative he is about the area and even as locals we learned so much about the history of Morris island and the Eco system you see along the way. Got some great photos of the light house and the... More

First time was so fun that I had to round up another crew to experience another journey to the island of treasures( Morris Island). That's what I like to call it! Bring a sand bucket or something that you can carry all the shells and sand dollars in. Also, this guy has got an eye for finding artifacts washed up... More

Unbelievable! Awesome! Fantastic! We have been on this trip in the past and have never been disappointed! The captain is so personable and knowledgeable. We ate some oysters right off the banks and had dolphins swim right up to the boat! You can tell the captain is a father because of how good he is with the kids. We will... More

Captain Gresh was wonderful! We went last Friday, January 17th and it was a little chilly so Captain Gresh brought sleeping bags! That was so thoughtful of him since we didn't come prepared. My whole family loved the entire trip!! We learned about Morris Island and its Lighthouse which was very interesting. We found sand dollars and Captain Gresh found... More

Out of our weekend trip to Charleston, this was the absolute highlight! Captain Gresh was such a great host. We couldn't have imagined how wonderful it would be. I would do this again in a second! My husband and I highly recommend Absolute Reel Screamer Charters!
