Captain Weatherly gave us a knowledgeable tour of the salt marshes and sand bars. It was a fun way to spend time with friends in our "backyard" environment. (We are locals being tourists!) We got a totally different perspective out in the boat, and we learned about the magnificence of our ecosystems. Thank you!

Under Weatherly's skillful boat handling, we cruised through the backwaters, encountering dolphin, pelicans and waterfowl, ending up at the famous Morris Island Lighthouse, where we were able to explore the beach, frolic in the surf and encounter even more creatures in their natural habitat. Truly wonderful. A highlight of my trip.

Great boat trip with Weatherly the captain. Mixed group on the boat, everyone enjoyed it. Great scenery and Weatherly was good at giving info on the place. Our son got to drive the boat which he loved and pick some shells up which he still has and likes to play with. Nice and relaxed, just like charleston.

I booked a private sunset cruise for a bachelorette party over Labor Day weekend and we had the best time, it was definitely the highlight of our weekend. Weatherly was our captain and she was so laid back and friendly. We were running a few minutes late because of holiday weekend traffic and had a little bit of a hard... More

We arrived at a condo building right off the main entrance to Folly beach and when we called, the location wasnt correct (should be updated on the site) and were told to head 10 min down the road to make it to the spot 2.

What a nice day on the water, saw lots of dolphins, amazing light house where she let us out on a sand bar to walk around near the light house. Could not ask for a better tour guide. Captain Weatherly was knowledgeable about Folly Beach and the river where we took the tour. Would highly recommend this on your visit... More

The 2 hr marsh cruise was a wonderful activity for our grandchildren (girls ages 9 and 7). We were fortunate to have the boat to ourselves and Weatherly (captain) did a great job of making it meaningful for the kids (her comments about the surrounding area, tides, etc. were communicated in a way that they grasped. In addition, each had... More
