This was a great excursion. Beautiful scenery, lots of wildlife, and Captain Amber was very engaging. Our group learned quite a bit about the low country eco-system. We highly recommend this 2 hour excursion on the May River for both locals and visitors alike.

I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I learned a great deal about the ecology of the area even though I'm a Hilton Head resident. Soooo relaxing. Plus I was impressed that Amber worked to ensure her presentation was interesting to both adults and kids.
