We rented a few kayaks for 2 hours. There was a lot more to see but 2 hours was def not enough. The waterway is fairly wide and you share it with motorized boats which pass frequently. We were fighting against the current so our journey was short. Lots of water fowl but we did not get to see any... More

We only rented a few kayaks and did our own thing but the staff was extremely helpful in getting us set up. They made sure we were familiar with the local waters and their equipment. We paddled out and enjoyed the gorgeous scenery and ended up playing with a pod of around 6 dolphins. Such a fantastic experience!

We got to see plenty of dolphins and one even followed us for a little while. We also had 3 Pelicans fly right beside our Boat. Our tour was during... More

Captain Richard gave us a great experience on our trip. We saw lots of dolphins, and had a great time on Morris Island hunting shells. He was so great with the four year old we had with us and gave us good laughs. We would definitely recommend this company to everyone we know!

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. Stories, Dolphins, Information, and War Paint too.. We will take this tour again for sure. We all had a blast! The Preston family of four.. 😃

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
