We’ve spent two afternoons with Capt Dan and we’d book again! He’s very knowledgeable about the area: history, pop culture and the waterways !

Captain Dan was a fantastic host! He was very accommodating and made sure we had a great time. He gave us a heads up about the weather and was flexible in changing our trip time - good call because it stormed big time our original afternoon! Lots of beautiful dolphins, interesting history and a relaxing time.

Absolutely perfect! I had a hard time finding a Charleston area tour that was specifically tailored to Netflix Outerbank's filming locations. (My daughters wish for her birthday). This tour was amazing. Captain Dan had pictures to relate the shows scene and where it was filmed...fun stories, great knowledge and history of the area. We had such a wonderful time this was the highlight of our entire trip!

I am a history teacher and Dan’s information about Charleston was terrific. What an amazing trip! He layered in stories from the colonial era to today!

The absolute BEST boat tour in the area! Very knowledgeable. Pointed out things we would’ve never found on our own! My daughters loved all his knowledge about “Outer Banks” filming locations. Definitely worth your time
