The whole family (2 adults, a teenager, and pre-teen) enjoyed this expedition. A lovely boat ride, great guide who taught us more about crabs and other ocean life, followed by crabbing. We were delighted to actually catch some! And then of course eat some. Great way to spend an afternoon.

We've taken this trip multiple times and really enjoy every single time! Every time we go we learn something new and have the best time. Today, Courtney and Casey really rocked the trip. They were so engaging with the kids we had on board and knew everyone by name within the first 5 minutes. They took great care of us... More

I went on this last week with a friend and enjoyed it very much. The guide is a naturalist who will teach you many facts about ocean life and birds. Stop and look for crabs. Take a relaxing ride down the creek. We stopped for 20 minutes and saw dolphins swimming near our boat. We saw more on the island... More

My husband and I made online reservations for the Blue Crabbing With Crab Boil. We had our five grandchildren to attend. This is an excellent eco tour for the whole family. Its like going on a school field trip, you can also pack a lunch. We left at 1:30 p.m. and returned at 5:00 p.m. The kids were in awe... More

We took the morning tour out to Capers Island with Courtney and Casey. These girls were very knowledgeable, friendly and great with the children. We would highly recommend this tour for families due to the hands-on experience with crabs, oysters, fish, etc.

We had a full boat on a Sunday evening with Kelsey as our guide. She was awesome!! Very intelligent, entertaining and very good with kids. We had a very spoiled boy on our boat who interrupted her at any chance he got - she never lots her cool or showed her annoyance. This was a great time to see the... More

We stumbled across this tour not having any plans for the day... We did the blue crab tour and it was excellent! Grayson, Elizabeth and Bobby were friendly and knowledgable. Grayson was great with the kids and all 3 of them made this tour worth the money and time.. We will use this company again when we come back to... More

Courtney and Grayson are terrific! They know so much about the ecology of the marshes and barrier islands. Courtney is great with kids, and adults learn a lot, too. The tour was a highlight of our vacation! Plus, there is Moses, the Boat Dog, who alerts everyone when he spots dolphins!

We charted a boat for our family reunion group of 26, ranging in age from 4 to 70. The crew was wonderful, providing us with fascinating details of the local marine life. Highlight of the tour was a stop on a sandbar for crabbing and fishing. Highly recommend this for all ages!!

These guys were very knowledgeable and kid friendly. They presented good environmental information in an accessible manner for kids and adults alike. It was info filled without being preachy all wrapped around a fun boat tour where we saw dolphin, an eagle ray and various birds. This was a return trip - well worth the time.
