I've used COA twice and enjoy both the quality of the service and the extreme professionalism and service-orientation if the staff. Yesterday, however, took it to a new level. I researched dolphin tours to do with my 8-year old. Others sent me to a central booking service. At COA they answer the phone and bend over to help. We signed... More

We had the best time on a kayak tour with Luke as our guide. He was so informative, funny and patient. I have kayaked many times but never had as much fun as today! The staff is so kind and friendly and actually spend time teaching how to kayak instead of just sending you out. Seriously a truly great experience... More

My family of 3, including a teenager, took the 2 hour boat Eco-tour with Captain Trip and this time spent was at the top of our experiences while visiting Charleston. We saw the dolphins and learned so much about this natural habitat. This opportunity was a pleasure for us adults but definitely shouldn't be missed for kids of older elementary... More

We usually don't do many group activities nor anything that requires us to wake up before noon on a holiday but we decided to do the morning stand up paddle boarding trip and it was incredible. As soon as we walked up the staff (Rick and Derek) came up to us, welcomed and got us all sorted with the front... More

Such a fun time, not to be missed on your Charleston trip! We had a group of 12. We rented tandem kayaks and had a guided sunset tour of Folly Creek. Our tour guides were wonderful and made the experience a relaxing evening.

Had a great time in a group of 5 on the three hour kayaking tour on Folly Estuary. Our guide, Luke, was considerate to find a good pace for the group, ranging from about 16 years old to a 73 year old. Luke also was very enthusiastic about sharing information about the environment and local area. Spending a beautiful morning... More

My kids and I decided to take the 2.5 Morris Island Lighthouse Eco-Tour on our latest trip to Charleston. We were able to get in the 3:30 tour on the day we called. When we arrived we were told other guests had canceled, so just the 3 of us had a private tour with Captain Trip. Captain Trip was so... More

3 adults and 1 child rented kayaks at this location and it was great. It was reasonably priced and full service. You could get an Eco tour or just take a kayak out and check out the marsh yourself. It could not have been simpler, they did everything for you...except paddle! I would definitely recommend is spot.

Took a 2 hour kayak tour with Derek and I have to say it exceeded my expectations. I learned so much while on the tour. Derek was also so good about checking on our comfort level as we were first time kayakers. Hi-light of the day was seeing the dolphins! Will absolutely return on a next visit to charleston.

Luke was an amazing guide. He clearly knew what he was talking about and I got to see dolphins feeding all around me. Definitely recommend.
