Pretty sure we saw the dolphin in the picture above! Captain Steven and his two golden retrievers took us over to Daufuskie in the morning and then came back in the afternoon to pick us up. On the way back he slowed down and a dolphin came right up to the boat and stuck its face up to look at... More

Excellent!! Would do again! We had a great time hand crabbing yesterday! Captain Chris was friendly and very knowledgeable. He answered all or questions with lots of patience. The boat was spacious with plenty of room for 6 people. The river and surrounding scenery was beautiful. Molly in the front office was a pleasure to work with. We caught 10... More

We were uncertain as to whether or not we would find any crabs in the traps due to the cold weather. We ended up catching about 10 large crabs, and we had plenty for 3 adults when we cooked... More

Was visiting Hilton Head and ventured into Bluffton. Found May River Excursions, a real treasure. Captain Chris provided a relaxing and informative tour of the May River. Our tour was all about Bluffton and the beautiful May River. We saw oysters, blue crabs, and dolphins. Chris also brought along his two Golden Retriever pups Marsh and River. The dogs were... More

We had a great afternoon of fishing with Captain Chris and then a fun crabbing trip the next day. I would recommend him without hesitation- great guide, knowledgable, good equipment, and very pleasant time. We will definitely be back. Support a great local business!

Wanted to visit Daufuskie Island but the ferry out of Hilton Head had a really inflexible schedule so tried May River based on a recommendation. The price was right ($45 for round trip, 30 minutes each way) and they pretty much were able to take me and pick me up based on when I wanted to go; they schedule based... More
