We did the twilight tour and couldn't have been more happy! Although we did not see any dolphins as I had hoped we would, our extrodinarily pretty and entertaining tourguide Anna knew tons of amazing stuff about everything we saw. From the whole of the ecosystem we were paddling through, to various species of birds, oysters, plants and even the... More

Being a manager of two local Charleston Bed and Breakfasts, I am always looking for exciting things for my guests to do. Some guests are in town for several days and while the peninsula is a great place to shop and see historical areas, it doesn't offer too many attractions for the "adventurous type" and for people that want to...

You will feel like you're in a world away from the awesome the excitement going on in Charleston. The staff will transport you to peace and tranquility in one of the most novel places in the USA! Learn about how the melting snow in the Smokey Mountains becomes a food factory that feeds everything from plankton to the dolphins swimming... More

Isn't it incredible here? Our location is exactly how you describe it; a short distance from Folly or Downtown, but SO far from the hustle and bustle of our beautiful city. Thank you so much for your review and for coming out with Charleston Outdoor Adventures! -Anna and the COA Crew More

If you're in the Charleston area, have a nice weather day and are looking for something neat to do, book a kayak tour with Charleston Outdoor Adventures. Located about twenty minutes south of the beautiful and historic city of Charleston, they offer various guided tours in and around the marsh and waterways near Folly's Island. Although we only got to... More

I had booked with a different tour company which was closer to Isle Of Palms where I was staying. As I was driving to Charleston, the Captain called to cancel. He cited tides and said I'd be miserably disappointed, especially if I wanted to find a few decent shells. Finally, I asked how many people booked the trip. So far,... More

What a terrific way to spend an afternoon! Derek was our tour guide. He was knowledgable and entertaining. Being my first time, I was a bit nervous but I can assure you that I felt perfectly safe once we were on the water. Try it! You won't regret it!

Visiting family for the week and went on a boat ride out on the water with Trip. We caught a huge fish and saw a TON of dolphins with the sunset. Very professional and easy going and it was definitely the highlight of my trip!

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.

It was a beautiful fall day and Captain Joe was a wonderful guide and educator. We stopped on Morris Island with in view of the... More

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
