Overview

This private 2 hour boat adventure is what Charleston is really all about! I'm a native captain, so we'll glide through the uncrowded backwaters of the most pristine estuaries in the country. We'll learn to harvest oysters, catch shrimp and identify local shore birds. Next, we'll find the Bottlenose Dolphins. Having them swim next to the boat is exciting, but if we find them feeding in the shallows it's spectacular! Our next destination is Morris Island where I'll teach you about its rich Civil War history as well as my own family ties to it. We'll then walk its shores looking for shells and artifacts as the sixth oldest lighthouse in the nation serves as our backdrop! So as you can see we have something for everybody on this trip. The dolphins are always here, the beach is loaded with shells, and if you listen hard enough you just may hear the roar of cannons from the past. So come on and join me! You never know what washed up the night before...

Gresh was a fantastic tour guide. He was knowledgeable and funny! It was a nice break from the hustle and bustle of downtown. The water was calm, the dolphins were plentiful and the seashells were too! I would definitely do this again!

Fabulous trip and you cant get more local knowledge than with Capt Gresh: 8th generation islander who still lives on his family's former plantation. He was very knowledgeable and hospitable. Wonderful morning on the water and beach! Worth the price!
