This boat tour was definitely the highlight of our trip to Charleston! Captain Richard was so friendly and knew so much about the area! We saw a ton of dolphins and also explored the area near the Morris Lighthouse. We also had time to relax and enjoy the water! Folly Beach was worth checking out too!

This boat tour was the best! We saw fourteen dolphins, crabs, a wood stork (endangered species!), fish, birds, and a SHARK! Captain Richard was very knowledgeable and shared a bit of local history with us. We were able to go the lighthouse and saw some hermit crabs which were adorable. Would highly recommended this boat tour and business!

Captain Richard and Lizzy led us on an awesome boat tour the whole, three generation family enjoyed! Bella, 10, and Michael,7, loved spotting the many dolphins close up, spying the sunken pirate ship, and Lizzy's fun tricks. Captain Richard was personable and knowledgable about the history, wildlife, and photo ops. We'll be returning to Flipper Finders every time we visit... More

We booked the Folly River Dolphin Boat Tour. Our party included 3 adults and our 9 year old daughter. We had the boat to ourselves which was awesome after being at the aquarium and various other places that were very crowded. John was our caption and he was great. He was very knowledgeable of the area and offered a lot... More

Captain Richard was great. We went on a bike tour of Morris island and it was a blast! We came for the biking but we stayed for the wildlife. Every few minutes there was a new wildlife experience to view. We saw at least a dozen dolphins and we even spied a shark. Captain Richard was very knowledgeable about the... More

We called around 8:30am and were able to take a 10am tour. We saw a sunken ship, tons of dolphins, crabs and shells. Captain Richard was fun, knowledgeable, and relaxed. We really enjoyed his company, but I think my son's favorite part of the tour was his new friend, Lizzy. Captain Richards adorable dog, Lizzy, went on the tour with... More

We went to Morris Island and biked the island, found sand dollars, explored for sharks teeth. the first mate was more than knowledgeable about geology and sea life so we all... More

We had an awesome time! Dolphins, birds and even a Horseshoe crab! I took our 8y/o son in a tandem kayak and my wife took our 15y/o niece in another. This was our first time in kayaks but once we got the hang of turning and tracking it was a fun trip. We were never anywhere near flipping, sinking or... More
