Overview

Naturalist guided tours to Capers Island Heritage Preserve. Trips depart from the Isle of Palms Marina and take you through winding salt marsh tidal creeks and the intracoastal waterway to Capers Island. Along the way you will learn about this amazing ecosystem and the plants and animals that call it home. Bottlenose dolphin, loggerhead sea turtles, and numerous birds are common sightings. Your guide will pull crab traps and throw cast nets to bring marine life onboard to put in our touch tank for closer examination. The majority of our scheduled trips are aboard our covered 40 passenger pontoon boat equipped with a restroom and beaching ramp. We also offer inshore fishing and private ecotours on our 6 passenger and 16 passenger boats. Trips include: Capers Island Wildlife Exploration, Dolphin Discovery Sunset, Blue Crabbing Excursion, Creek Fishing, Family Fun Day, and Beachside Cookouts.
