We booked Tideline Tours to take out our extended family of 12 the day after Thanksgiving. The captain met us promptly at the dock, and was courteous, efficient and helpful. We all got settled in and left a little before our scheduled tour time. We had family members from the age of 12 to 76, and all of us had... More

Captain Weatherly is the most loveliest guide we have ever had on a trip, she was so friendly, experienced and incredibly knowledgable about the surrounding area and the wildlife. The boat leaves from Sunset Cay Marina, Folly Beach which can only be found with the help of a navigational aide. Once you've parked, walk across the footbridge and gravel path... More

We breezed through the salt marshes around Folly Island and were able to see dolphins, as well as pelicans and other shore birds, catching dinner. We saw oyster beds and were able to collect sea shells on Morris Island. A great way to spend a couple of hours. Captain Weatherly was very informative and a great guide.

We spent a wonderful morning with Captain Phil learning all about the salt marsh and the importance of them to the local environment. We also learnt all about the local history of Charleston from the salve trade to pirates to the civil war. We saw dolphin playing in the bay, had a walk on Morris Island, to gather shells, saw...

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.
