9 of us, grandparents, parents and 3 darling grandchildren between that magic age of 3 and 4, took this tour to, we hoped, give those curious minds something new to experience and think about. The guide, sorry, I don't recall her name, was perfect. The children loved it. Maybe Moses, her standard poodle, had something to do with their excitement.... More

From the first phone call these people were great! So very helpful and friendly. Courtney was our guide and her dog Moses was a hit for the whole boat. Our kids loved seeing the crabs, touching the fish that came up in the shrimp net and seeing all of the treasures on Capers Island. Courtney pointed out a Loggerhead turtle... More

Mike, Captain John and Ali were great guides. Took good care of us, funny stories, nice dolphin watching, and lots of crabbing. Kids loved it, would do it again.

This was the best tour ever!! The guide John is the most perfect guide, we learned so much about crabbing and the area. He was fantastic with kids. We loved the hands on Adventure, caught tons of crab. Outstanding for everyone in the family. Kids and adults. Definitely recommend!!

This is a must do activity in Isle of Palms. Much more than just another boat ride. The kids and adults really enjoyed learning about the area and wildlife. We had a blast crabbing and fishing. Our guide, Bo, was fantastic. Can't recommend this enough!!!

Our family of 10 had such a great time on the Blue Crabbing Excursion! Even a year later we talk about the great memories created and definitely want to return. Courtney was great! Friendly, knowledgeable and so much fun. Dolphin sighting with the help of her dog Moses made it extra special. We caught blue crab, walked to Boneyard beach,... More

Very friendly, knowledgeable staff. Great trip for kids of all ages (1-100). I have lived in SC all of my life and still I learned many new things today about the tidal creek ecosystem from Captain Robert. We saw lots of wildlife and had a great time on Capers Island looking for crabs and shells. We will definitely book more... More
