I went on the shelling tour the ride was very informative and fun. We had the boat for the two of us. Be sure to take a cooler because it is very hot on the island. We saw 3 dolphins on the way back. We also saw a shark within a foot of the beach it was a small one... More

Our sunset marsh tour with Captain Phil was a nice combination of information (he is very knowledgeable about ecosystems and history), fun, and relaxation. We stopped on Morris Island to explore. It is a wonderful tour option of the marshes and a fun way to see the area from the water. We loved it!

Our "salt marsh adventure" was a great time! This was our first trip to the area so it was nice to get out and see some sites off the beach. Captain Phil was a great guide - interesting info about the environment as well as the history of the area; entertaining and informational. We saw a few dolphins and various... More

I chose to take this tour based on the website videos and reviews. We had a very nice boat ride to Morris Island and had a chance to walk on one of the islands near the lighthouse. Saw some great wildlife (birds and dolphins). Unfortunately we did not have Captain Ashton or Phil, who had great reviews. The woman who... More

Captain Phil is EXCELLENT! My 9 year old and 5 year old were talking about what they learned from Captain Phil on our way home. This adventure is great for babies too, Captain Phil had something to keep them entertained as well. Something we will definitely do on our next trip to Folly!

We took a 2ish hour salt marsh cruise. Our captain, Weatherly, was wonderful, both friendly and knowledgeable. They were very forgiving of us having to reschedule and made it no problem. 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
