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.

Great guide and the chance to see an undeveloped barrier island. It was absolutely beautiful. Want to do the crabbing excursion the next time we visit Charleston!

I bought another Living Social or Groupon and this time I did the morning 4 hour Capers Island Tour. THey did another great job. First I was greeted by Courtney and she had remembered me from last year and introduced me to the other boat captain and naturalist. We set off on time and went through gorgeous marshland where they... More

The Barrier Islands Eco Tours does a fantastic job all around. I've taken the larger group tour with Kelsey as our naturalist, and a private family boat tour with Captain Robert. On both occasions I was amazed at how knowledgeable the guides were, and how well the tours are run. We saw a range of wildlife from dolphins, to blue... More

We had a perfect evening aboard the Caretta with Sarah as our guide and Captain Jessen. Sarah was very knowledgeable about the waters and marine life and made our trip fun and interesting. Perfect night watching dolphins, exploring Capers Island and enjoying a fantastic sunset. This tour is a must if you want to learn about and appreciate all the... More

I had the pleasure of spending my 4th of July holiday in Charleston. On Thursday night we used Barrier Island Ecotours out of Isle of Palms for some sightseeing. Our naturalist Kelsey and driver Justin were incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. They taught us all about dolphins, crabs, and turtles. The kids on the tour had the time of their lives... More

This tour is simply amazing. Captain Kelsey and Naturalist Robbie have an in-depth, educational, and fun tour. The tour pace was great- there was enough time to stop and look at different sites as well as a comfortable ability to ask questions. Several times Kelsey pointed out pods of dolphins and loggerhead turtles. Robbie (with the help of some younger... More

We used the Barrier Island Ecotours on our last trip to Isle of Palms and we have enjoyed each of our excursions. The first trip we took was to Capers Island and this time we did a blue crab catch. Our 12 year old daughter enjoyed this so much and we will be doing it again in the future. We... More

We had a great time with Cap. Robert on Barrier Island Ecotours. We left from a very cool marina on one of Charleston's barrier island. You wind through the waters around the islands, all the while the Captain had a very entertaining and informative talk and show-n-tell about local marine life. We picked up a crab trap and saw some... More
