We had a great time with our guide, Bo. He was very engaging, knowledgable and great with the kids. We saw Dolphins, fished, visited Capers Island - on one trip! Would highly recommend Barrier Island Eco for the family fun trip.

Our trip was chilly - plan accordingly, but Robert the naturalist was informative, funny and an excellent teacher. Our kids loved it!

In spite of it being a bit overcast and a tad chilly, we had a great time seeing promised pelicans, oyster catchers, bald eagles, an alligator, and dolphins as we cruised to Capers Island. Our trip was made truly wonderful by our guide Courtney who was incredibly knowledgeable about everything! She knew her sea life, flora, fauna, including their Latin... More

Met Robert at the Marina on an evening with some friends as we were exploring the area. He asked if we were looking to go out for a ride, so after some discussion, we all decided to check out the tour and boarded the boat. Robert is fun, friendly and very knowledgeable. The weather was perfect and the ride was... More

Took this as part of a class trip for elementary school kids and both the parents and kids really enjoyed every moment. We had a chartered trip, so a bit different than the trips that typically go out, but the agenda was the same. We held crabs, saw dolphins on our cruise, even an alligator on Capers Island. Our tour... More

Very relaxing, entertaining, and informational sunset cruise. Saw dolphins, held crabs, walked on Boneyard Beach, and took in a fantastic sunset with the Ravenel Bridge in view. Definitely would do it again!

My husband and I live in Wisconsin, but both of us have lived near barrier islands. We were missing the marshes and puff mud. So when we went to Charleston for his 50th high school reunion in mid-October we decided to take an eco tour. We waited until the day before to make reservations because we had only one time...

Jennifer our naturalist was informative and friendly on our recent excursion on Oct. 15th. She provided us with information on the native species that inhabit the salt marshes as we made our way towards Capers Island and Boneyard Beach. We saw dolphins, a shark or two, brown and white pelicans, herons, and many other birds. Only disappointment was in not... More
