We went on a morning kayak adventure with Kate. Not only was Kate super personable and a joy to spend a few hours with, but she was super knowledgeable about both kayaking and our natural surroundings. The company offers a quick tutorial prior to embarking on the kayak trip. Of the 3 adults on our kayak trip, none of us... More

Our goal was to see dolphin... Searched and "flipper finders" was the place to be.. We took the boat ride with Captain Richard.. Who was so very entertaining.

Our family had a great time on this tour. Kids 9 and 7. We took a two hour dolphin tour over to the Morris Island lighthouse. Captain Richard made us feel very welcome, and we would highly recommend him. Our timing was around low tide which was great. We were able to explore a sand bar near the lighthouse where... More

Spent two hours cruising through some marshes, to an island, saw a lighthouse and some dolphins and got some great local info. We even did some good for the environment while we were out there. A bunch of balloons were stuck in some marsh grass and we pulled up and removed it. Overall a really nice boat ride.

This is our first visit to Folly Beach, so my husband and I did the boat tour to not only see dolphins, but to get a good view of the island. This tour was perfect for that! It's a small (but totally solid and comfortable!) boat, so the tour feels intimate -- we had only one other couple with us.... More

Three of the lads took to the water on a Kayak having never done it before. Our 17 year old gave this a 10 out of 10 and would go again (high praise as those with teenagers know). The instructions were great and Captain Richard made sure of a good time. There were loads of Dolphins and went up the... More

This tour is a great family experience. The tour takes only 4-6 people so you get personalized service. We had a 4 year old with us, and Captain Richard was very engaging with her as well as the rest of us. We saw many dolphin and learned about the history and ecology of Folly Beach. I would highly recommend this... More
