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...

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!

Capt. Gresh is a Lowcountry native that loves his environment! He gives a great tour of the tidal marshes that he grew up playing in as a kid. You can tell that he is passionate about this area. He knows history and ecology. His tours are great for adults and kids alike! A nice change of pace and scenery from... More

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

My teenage daughter and my grown son and I took a tour to Morris island with Captain Grish. The trip took about 30 minutes there and back with an hour on the island. Captain Grish gave us some history of the area and places we passed on the way to the island and back. He has had some interesting experiences... More

Our family chose to take a private boat tour with Gresh and it was one of the favorite parts of our trip. Gresh was so knowledgable and loved to share his knowledge with us. He went above and beyond what we would have expected, including helping us search for sand dollars and sea shells. My daughter's favorite part was seeing... More

Gresh is one of the best tour guides in Charleston. We have taken several tours with him from when he used to give Morris island lighthouse tours to Eco/dolphin tours. He is knowledgeable and super friendly. You will not be disappointed. Outstanding quality experience.
