This boat ride was awesome. Kids and adults enjoyed watching Dolphins take a walk on the Island by the lighthouse. The best part was to see the star fish, collect conch, sea urchin shells on the Island.

We did a 2 hour boat dolphin tour and saw a lot of dolphins! Richard was our captain and he was great! He was very informative about the dolphins and other wildlife. We learned a lot about the area and got to explore the small island out by the lighthouse. Since the boat only held 6 people, we were able... More

kayaked and saw dolphins and crabs and oysters. Very cool! would highly recommend. The only thing I would say I didn't love was that we were with a family with younger kids and it would have been better for my husband and I if we were with only adults so we could go further and faster. But that's who signed... More

We took a 2 hour kayak tour and it was great! Our guide was knowledgeable and patient with less experienced kayakers. It was very hot on the water and sunscreen/water are musts! We would definitely do it again.

My family and I were spending a week in Folly and did a kayak tour with these folks. All very nice and well educated in coastal science and in love with the environment that they showed us. Although I have done some coastal environmental studies myself, I learned a lot! Kate was our main guide and was fabulously awesome. And... More

Captain Richard was awesome! We had a beautifully relaxing ride through the back rivers of Folly, along with an up close view of the Morris Island lighthouse.

My girlfriend and I had an awesome guided kayaktour. Even though we didn't have any experience in kayaks, our guide Kate gave a thorough briefing, and everything went smoothly. We paddled along the river for a good hour, with very enthusiastic guiding along the way. Kate was very knowledgeable and fun, and gave us all kinds of cool and interesting... More
