Great Boat Ride

Captain Weatherly was terrific. This boat ride is a must. It will give you a whole new perspective of the Folly Beach area.

We called last minute with a large group and the captain went out of his way to accommodate us. The kids loved it, we had a quick safety lesson and were able to get out on the water quickly. The guides were patient and knowledgeable. The setting is beautiful. We would definitely use this outfit again.

If you are in the Charleston/Folly Beach area, take a trip with Flipper Finders. We chose a boat tour guided by Richard. He was extremely accommodating and even agreed to take our two large labs. We had a wonderful time zipping around the inland channels. He loves photography and knows where to go for beautiful photographs. Although the boat appears... More

Our group of 5 was led by Weatherly through the local waterways. Weatherly is a great guide who has extensive knowledge about the local ecosystem and is clearly passionate about the Folly area (all while entertaining us). Would absolutely recommend this company to anyone looking to learn something about your surroundings while kayaking!

Our Guide Kate was knowledgeable, confident, and easy-going... providing us with a safe and truly unique experience of the tidelands. We actually went twice, we had such a good tour the first time... we booked again a few days later for another, longer paddle. One tour at high tide (during a full moon cycle!) and another at low tide... Kate... More

We scheduled a 2 hour kayak tour, with a guide. Heidi, a Naturalist, talked to us about the local ecology, oyster beds, and how the tides impact the habitats for fish and plants. We visited areas we wouldn't have found on our own. I highly recommend this business. We had a blast!

This is by far one of our favorite things to do in Folly (besides hang out at the beach!)!!! My husband and I have visited Folly twice in the past year and have booked a sunset kayak tour each time. The Folly area marsh lands are beautiful - especially at sunset. We were the only ones on the tour both... More

It's an amazing tour that my friends and I haven't experienced. Sunset is so beautiful and the view is incredible. We really saw dolphin and other endangered wildlife. Captain Richard is a professional photographer. 很赞的旅行和风景!很适合喜欢大自然的朋友!$45很值

We had the pleasure of having Kate take us (and another couple) on the sunset tour. It was fantastic. The views were incredible; something both my wife and I will never forget. Being complete novices, we were both a little hesitant but Kate put us both at ease; really couldn't ask for more from a guide. Highly, highly recommended.

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!
