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

We rode out to Caper's Island, an uninhabited small island ; we were able to ride along the intercostal at full throttle with the breeze running through our hair; absolutely exhilarating. Great customer service and experience all around. Would... More

Had a great time on the boat with our group of college friends. We stopped at an island to swim and went out into the Atlantic. It was even better than any of us had hoped for. Walker was a great captain!
