We took this tour to see dolphins and we saw a lot. Nick was very knowledgeable of the area and knew where to look. We were dropped off on a somewhat secluded beach where we could view an old lighthouse and find see shells. The boat was comfortable and well maintained. I would definitely recommend this tour for dolphin watching.... More

These tours were so great we took 2 of them during our week on Folly Beach! We took a Sunset Tour with Cpt Joe. His knowledge and love for the ecosystem was obvious! He was entertaining, we saw several dolphins and the sunset was gorgeous! The second was a low tide dolphin watching and seashell tour. We saw so many... More

We had a wonderful time on our 1.5 Eco dolphin tour. I think we saw 40-50 dolphin sightings, even calves. Captain Derrick was so great... Tons of information about the Eco-system and dolphins. It was a wonderful time. He was such a great tour guide. We will bring other family members to enjoy this tour!!!

Captain Joe and his associate Derek are both knowledgeable and personable and make every outing exciting. We have gone on the dolphin tour and the Morris Island tour twice, and each trip was different and fun for the whole family (no easy feat with two teenagers). Among the sights we have enjoyed: a green turtle, several dolphins, a bull shark,... More

Took a wonderful morning tour with Captain Joe to see some dolphins and the Morris Island Lighthouse. Joe did an exceptional job teaching us about the local wildlife and the amazing ecosystem. Thank you so much for a memorable morning!

I surprised my husband with kayaking for his birthday. Everyone was so nice here...from the young lady in the office to the guys getting your stuff together for you. They go over safety tips, rowing tips etc. We did not do a tour, we just rented a top sitting tandem kayak and went on our own. It was a rainy... More

My husband and I did the Sunset Dolphin tour the last week of July. Derrick was our captain and he was awesome. He was very knowledgeable about the Charleston area and about the dolphins. We saw so many dolphins....they were even jumping out of the water for us. I would highly recommend this tour. It is a smaller boat....room enough... More

We had a great time with Derek on a sunset and dolphin boat tour. He was incredibly knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. This trip was the highlight of our trip to Charleston and we highly recommend it to anyone.

Make sure you have gps, otherwise it may be hard to find. If you find yourself on a bumpy dirt road, you're headed in the right direction. They recommend you call ahead even if you just want to rent some kayaks. When we did, the service was friendly. As soon as we got there, the kayaks, PFD's, water proof bag,... More
