Amazing time kayaking today. Everything was perfect. Was surprised to learn so much from our guide. He was very knowledgeable but also really fun. Would highly recommend the experience.

There were four of us taking the tour with Captain Joe on 10/9/14 at 1:30pm. We never expected to be gifted with such a talented guide. Neither did we expect to witness the wildlife display either. Captain Joe pointed out a mother dolphin and her newborns which were probably 4 days old. Captain Joe has named his friends and pointed... More

We took the morning kayaking trip, and it was wonderful. Our two guides were incredibly knowledgeable and told us everything we ever wanted to know about the animal life in Charleston. We saw a glimpse of a dolphin that was pretty far away, but we saw lots of birds, and the day was gorgeous.

My wife and I just spent the last weekend in Charleston and this was definitely one of the highlights of the trip! We were fortunate enough to be the only two on our dolphin tour, and our guide, Trip, was extremely knowledgable and passionate about the ecosystem's wildlife. We were both thrilled with our close encounters with the dolphins, who... More

Would recommend this to... More

We went on the Morris Island Lighthouse boat tour. Joe did not disappoint! He is very knowledgeable on the area and we saw so many dolphins! Once on the Island, we were 2 of maybe 8 people on the whole Island. Although we are not able to walk up to the Lighthouse (divided by the water), it is still relaxing... More

We did a three hour morning tour with Derek and it was fabulous. Derek was extremely knowledgeable about the flora and fauna and all things winged,finned, and invertebrate. I highly recommend this trip and Derek to get out and learn about the low country.
