This is the 2nd time we took the Sunset Capers Island trip. Once last year and then again this year. We were so happy to see that Sara was still working there and was going to be our guide. I would recommend requesting her when you book. She is not only very knowledgeable and well traveled, she is amazing with... More

We loved our sunset cruise and exploration of Capers Island! Our guide was so knowledgeable about the area and answered all our questions. It was obvious our guide and captain loved the area and wanted us to better understand how we can work together to preserve it! We loved seeing the sunset as we cruised back to shore:) Perfect outing... More

We did the 3.5 hour wildlife exploration tour with Robert and it was great! Robert was very knowledgeable and we learned so much. The time spent on Boneyard beach was very nice and relaxing. We got some great pictures, swam in the water and picked up some huge and pretty shells. Would definitely do another tour again!

We went on the crabbing trip led by Courtney and Sarah. Moses, the dolphin spotting dog, joined us for the afternoon. It was a wonderful experience. Not only did we learn about the natural habitat around Isle of Palms but there were fun activities for each member of our family. We are always looking for "memory making" experiences when we...

We enjoyed a gorgeous sunset cruise with Robert and his sweet dog Bella. My two nieces loved the tour and Robert was very knowledgeable and great with kids. Definitely do this if you're staying on or near Isle of Palms!

This was great. The guide on the tour was very well informed and great with the young ones. Walking around the island was very peaceful. It was relaxing and something you don't do everyday. The children ( ages 8, 5, and 3) had fun exploring.

If you are visiting the Charleston SC area..you MUST try to do the Barrier Island Eco Blue Crab Expedition!... You totally get your money's worth! We were so fortunate to have Moses the mascot dog owned by Courtney one of the tour guides on our trip. Such a cute dog who loves watching for dolphins. We learned so much about... More

Incredible views and educational too. Courtney, Moses and Captain Ron were fabulous! Refreshing to see people who love their job. We've spent many years touring the history of Charleston. Nice to tour the beauty of nature that keeps us returning.
