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!

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
