About Lowcountry Photo Safaris
We are a wildlife photography tour in the Lowcountry of South Carolina (mostly Beaufort County). We have 2hr ( for groups of 3 to 5 people) or the customary 3hr tours (1 to 4 people). The trips run around the calendar year the first three hours & the last three hours of the day (weather permitting), in a 19ft Carolina Skiff. Trips are seasonal and focus on the wildlife activity of the moment.
