Just do it! It is a great way to see the city, very enjoyable and relaxing. Brian was really great, It is more than just dolphin watching it is birds diving into the water, seeing the city and feeling the sun and wind.

We had a great time relaxing and taking in the sights on the sunset cruise. Jeremy was a great host and captain. He shared info about sailing and the Charleston area. He was very friendly and was able to answer questions during this sailing trip. This was a highlight during our time in the area.

Let me just tell you straight up to do this!!!! Brian (captain) greated us at the dock, was super friendly, and answered all our questions before, during, and after the tour. You will most likely see dolphins so save your $ with those dolphin tours. It is BYOB which is very nice. Each tour holds six persons. The day we... More

My friends and I were visiting Charleston for a bachelorette weekend and decided to book a sailing excursion while there. This was the best idea ever! We had such an amazing time! The weather was beautiful and the catamaran was so nice. There were four of us and two others joined and we all got along just great. We really... More

Booked a 90 minute sail while my friends were in town and we had SO much fun. We are a talkative group- and Brian was such a great balance for us because he shared some of his knowledge about the historical buildings and islands in the harbor but mostly let us enjoy our sail the way we wanted to. He... More

Wow. This sail was a blast, definitely something my wife and I plan to do every time we go to Charleston. We arrived a bit early, met the captain (Brian) and the other passengers, boarded the boat and shoved off without delay. After a few minutes of motoring away from the dock, we turn into the wind and raised the... More

I took the Eco dolphin tour on the 1st day of Winter. It was a perfect day with great wind that pushed us around the harbor. We arrived early to find Brian, our captain, getting the catamaran prepared. He gave us the green light to hop on and start our tour 15 minutes early. Some would think that we would... More

What a wonderful way to spend an evening is all I can say. I went to sailing camp as a child and had not been on a sailboat in many years so this was really an awesome adventure for me. My husband had never been sailing before and he too thought it was a wonderful time. If you want to... More

My husband and I had a great time on the sunset cruise. We had no problem using our deal from Living Social. Captain Jeremy is well-informed about Charleston past and present, seafaring, and sea life. It was a laid back and comfortable ride.
