My family of 5 spent the afternoon tubing & kneeboarding with Capt Walker & Jess and had the greatest time. They provided very clear instruction for us first-timers (my husband & I and our 3 kids, ages 7, 11 & 13) & helped to ensure that the afternoon was a highlight of our vacation. We can't wait to do it... More

I live in the area and my coworkers and I decided to charter a boat on our day off. What a great idea! Walker made the difference and catered to our group as our captain. We had such a great time we bought an additional hour. Highly recommend as a good way to spend a hot day in charleston!

I went on a day trip with my family and it was great. Our guide walker was exceptional, friendly, and very experienced. He even gave us a great breakfast recommendation at the salt works deli! I would highly recommend the safari to any families in isle of palms.

My boyfriend and I went jet skiing for the first time to celebrate my birthday and we had a blast. Brandon was an awesome guide, helping us learn how to safely operate the jet ski. We stopped halfway at an island and took a little break, allowing my boyfriend and I to switch turns driving. I had the biggest smile... More
