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

We've been on tours where we were promised that we'd catch fish or see Dolphins, but this one actually fulfilled it's claims. Captain Richard was our Sunset Dolphin Tour guide. He was funny and knowledgeable about the history of Folly Beach and some other islands. We also rented kayaks and were given a route to boat and some helpful hints... More

My family went kayaking one night at sunset and a boat tour the next night at sunset. Cannot describe how much we enjoyed every minute of both experiences. Dan, Richard and Lizzy (the water dog) were fabulous, educational, entertaining and went out of their way to make both trips very special for us. Loved every minute of each tour. Will... More

We booked two different tours with Flipper Finders during our vacation at Folly Beach -- the sunset kayak tour and the sunset dolphin boat tour -- and my wife, daughters and I loved them both. Captain Richard and the staff were all super friendly and the office location was an easy walk from the Tides hotel where we stayed. The... More

Thanks McKenna for making our trip fantastic! Our family of 4 had such a great time. Relaxing for the adults & just enough stuff to see & do (navigate/paddle the marsh) to keep the kids happy! Amazing sunset and getting fairly close up to a group of dolphins was the cherry on top! Highly recommend!!!

First of all, please visit Folly Beach for your next summer vacation. What a fun town! While visiting in July 2015, we took a tour of the Folly River through Flipper Finders. Our lovely guide Kate was fantastic, knowledgeable, friendly and fun. We toured in the morning near low tide and saw a wide variety of animals including dolphins, many... More

We had an amazing time on our sunset boat cruise with captain Richard AKA jokester! Captain enjoyed getting the Dolphins involved to swim our waves, one of the coolest things I've ever witnessed. He even took us out to the lighthouse, that was quite an adventure! He docked his boat so we could walk around an island for about 25... More

We had such a great time yesterday at Flipper Finders on the Sunset tour. Captain Dicky was awesome! We got to see the dolphins strand feeding and we saw several different birds. Morris Island was great! We saw a ton of shells and hermit crabs and a scallop. We will definitely go there again and I highly recommend it for... More
