Family fun for everyone! We offer 3 hour shell and sharks tooth hunting & history trips out to beautiful and secluded Morris Island, as well as romantic sunset and dolphin cruises. Science and eco tours for kids, and school groups that meet or exceed SC school standards as well. Definitely kid and pet friendly, too. Our vessels are perfectly suited for private charters, bachelorette and bachelor parties, anniversaries and birthday parties, any kind of get together you can think of, up to 80 passengers.

Come on out and see us!

Our tour guide was awesome, even though it was slightly sprinkling, they still took us out. I'm so glad they did. We saw dolphins swimming in the ocean on the way out the island. We passed Fort Sumner on the way out and got a nice history lesson on the way out. Once on the island, we found lots of... More

As our last day in Charleston, my family decided to take a boat tour around the area, as it was a nice day. Just as we walked up onto the boat, the staff greeted us with a warm smile, and immediately gave us information and a mini-lesson on knots. Throughout the tour, which consisted of several other kind families, the... More

We had my boyfriend's 30th birthday on the Charleston Explorer for a happy hour cocktail cruise in the Charleston Harbor. We had around 35 people attend and everyone had plenty of room to move around. We brought tons of food and drinks and were supplied coolers and tables to put everything. We listened to music as we cruised around at... More

Went out today with Howard and Marnie. What a great time! Had a great explanation of the region and sights from Capt. Howard. Had plenty of time to beachcomb with great insight from Marne. Didn't get wet and would recommend this trip to anyone. Several kids on board also got to help skipper the boat - which they appeared to... More

We had a very enjoyable and relaxing afternoon on the Charleston Harbor and Morris Island. Capt. Howie and his dry humor were very entertaining. The scenery is beautiful and the stroll on the island was great for pictures, we even found some shark teeth. We had 40+ people in our group and the trip was enjoyed by all! We look... More

I have had the pleasure of cruising with this company on several occasions. The crew is fun and knowledgeable. They do their best to make sure everyone has a good time. I have been on the boat when, because of overnight storms, very few shells or sharks' teeth were found . Capt. Howie offered everyone a return trip free of... More

The sunset tour on the small boat gives you great views of Charleston's sights and goes much closer to the shore than the larger boats can. Relaxed and informal. Fantastic photo opportunities. With dolphins!

I really enjoyed this tour. It was a very nice change of pace than the day we spent in Charleston. We were a small group, and our guide was very knowledgeable. I loved just walking along the beach gathering shells! It was very relaxing and a nice change of pace. For those of us who weren't very skilled at finding... More

A friendly welcome and an OK tour to Morris Island and around the harbour. The captain, How is, was informative and seemed to know some food facts about Charleston. The trip to Morris Island itself was a little underwhelming. Having been sold it as an island paradise to some extent, I'd have expected to find more than a couple of... More

Well...What can I say, other than thanks for not beating us up too badly for a mediocre experience. I'm not exactly sure when you were here, but Fall, and it's unusually high tides can upset the balance of what washes up where, and we don't like it either when we arrive and the conditions are less than exceptional. It doesn't... More
