We were able to see lots of dolphins and birds from the boat. We stopped for a bit at Morris island and were able to see the lighthouse, some... More

We had a blast on our boat ride out to Morris Island through the salt marsh. Our captain was a lot of fun and spent time educating us about the environment and the salt marsh. We watched dolphins for a while with a few close encounters before going for a walk along the beach at Morris Island. It was so... More

Our group of six took the 9:30am tour and enjoyed every minute of it. Captain Anton gave us a comprehensive look at the salt marshes, interspersed with info on flora and fauna. The highlight was our encounter with several pods of dolphins and a couple who decided to give us a show! I was lucky to snap a once in... More

I'm so glad I found Tideline Tours when I was looking for activities to do around Charleston. We stayed on James Island, so Folly Beach was about 15 minutes from our hotel and my husband and I made reservations to take this tour with our 2-year-old son. He was very excited to ride on a boat! The boat ride itself... More
