Very informative, beautiful, educational... barefoot robert was awesome, we saw turtles, dolphins, gorgeous marshes, loads of shells and so much more. We got to explore the undeveloped island of Capers and swim, this is a must when visiting Charleston or the beach towns nearby! Grab lunch or dinner afterwards at the marina!

We enjoyed ourselves so much last year we did it again this year. Funny some people gave this trip a lower rating because of the weather but loved the tour??? Then there is the ONE that doesn't like dogs and that should tell you what kind of person they are anyhow! This is a GREAT trip, Captain Robert and his... More

On a recent Friday night during the golden hour, Captain Jesson and Naturalist Sarah shared the magic of what is known as Boneyard Beach on Capers Island. Being on the island was an experience like we've never had before, and we have been talking and thinking of it since. Aside from Capers, my four-year-old is still talking about the skulls... More

Great tour group we have done in the past with our homeschool group. This time we took the family on a tour. The crew are knowledgeable and are happy to answer your questions. They are wonderful with the children. Capers Island was beautiful and a great place to walk, relax, and take some great photos. Definitely worth it!

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!
