Captain Phil did a great job of customizing our trip for the 6 year old who loves speed and the 6th grader who loves marine biology, and the older crowd who enjoyed the history. Also, very accommodating for the wheelchair we brought along.

We had a picture perfect morning on our cruise with Captain Phil! He was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining - had the adults and kids alike rapt and engaged. We saw so many marsh animals, and there was not a question he could not answer. The boat was clean and comfortable, and his captaining style was both fun and safe. We... More

What a picture perfect afternoon we had and a perfect tour with Capt Phil. Easy going, extremely knowledgable. Never boring and very entertaining. I had no idea how large the marshes are. This is the only way to see the marshes. The beach stop I loved. Found many sand dollars.

We really enjoyed our tour with Captain Anton...Two major benefits of this tour..1) Knowledge: Anton is a certified marine geologist and longtime (35+ year) resident of the Charleston area...he not only knows the waters like the back of his hand, but he provides a tourism experience that is completely educational but fun at the same time....2) Small Tour Size: Larger...

Well worth the money for the views, walk on a beautiful beach, and seeing dolphins! It was definitely one of the highlights of my trip to Charleston.

We have taken Tideline Tours with Captain Anton 3 times. We love sharing our beautiful marshland with our out of town visitors and Anton it the best guide ever! We have seen dolphin, sharks and sea turtles on our tours. We have found ancient pottery shards and wonderful shells! Highly recommend!!

My 17 year old daughter and I took the tour with Anton when we were visiting Folly Beach last week. We not only had an awesome ride in beautiful salt marshes, but we learned so much from Anton! We were able to see the oyster beds at low tide and many many dolphins. The weather was beautiful that day and... More

Despite dreary weather we had an excellent experience with Captain Phil on a sunset cruise! He was knowledgable and had a great sense of humor. He was very conscious of making sure we were comfortable and safe. I would definitely recommend!
