Charleston Marsh Eco Boat Cruise with stop at Morris Island Lighthouse

The uninhabited Morris Island makes a nice contrast to the nearby city of Charleston, but Morris Island isn’t easy to get to, as it’s only accessible by boat. This cruise sets sail from Bowens Island and takes you to Morris Island to spend free time exploring it at your own pace before heading back. Be on the lookout for marine life, such as bottlenose dolphins and sea turtles, from the boat.

Excellent tour!!! We had a knowledgeable tour guide who kept us laughing and entertained the whole trip. We would highly recommend Captain Dallas, who not only provided us with great dolphin sightings and views of water fowl “pond parties. He explained the science and history of the area in a way that was entertaining for all ages while providing an incredibly smooth ride. Outstanding!!!

Capt. Joey found plenty of dolphin (including Flattop the tribe alpha-female) but provided so much more. It was obvious that Capt. Joey was not reciting a script but was a truly passionate advocate of all the creatures of this remarkably beautiful ecosystem. During a beautiful winding trip through the tidal channels of marsh grass we saw dolphins feeding as the tide went out to sea with the magnificent Morris Island lighthouse only a few hundred yards away. My wife and I walked away with a deeper respect and awe for Nature and its awesome beauty. Do yourself a favor and stop at Bowen's Island Restaurant when you return to the dock. It will be the perfect ending to a perfect day. Enjoy !!! Bruce White and Amy Casil

This was our favorite thing we did in Charleston! The boat ride was so peaceful (and I am afraid of the water). We saw pelicans and a pod of dolphins followed by a beautiful view of the lighthouse. I even found a beautiful whelk shell (looks like a small conch) among many nice shells!

Had all of my nieces and nephews in town and can’t overstate how wonderful an experience we had on the tour. Captain Luke knocked it put of the park! Extremely knowledgeable, professional, and punctual.
