This was our second experience with May River Excursions. Our first was a Christmas Eve dolphin cruise -- a super trip with Captain Chris! This time, we took his water taxi to Daufuskie Island. Chris hooked us up with a golf cart rental business on the island, so we were able to travel around the island on our own relaxed tour.

Chris is a pro. He is friendly and so knowledgeable. This boat is new and Chris is a proud owner. It's always fun to hear the history and tidbits of information that Chris shares along the way. The ride over to Daufuskie took about 20-25 minutes, I think. Even though the weather was less than ideal, cold and drizzly, Chris made the ride fun. We were able to call him when we were getting ready to leave the island, in order to arrange a pick up time for the ride back to Bluffton.

Chris obviously loves his job and he makes the trip fun for his guests. He seems to make everyone feel special. We were so happy to have taken May River Excursions' water taxi to Daufuski. It was a fun ride and a great time exploring the island. We even saw dolphins and an eagle on the way back. The twisty turning ride at low tide was thrilling.

Chris Shoemaker's May River Excursions will be on our agenda for future trips to the low country and Hilton Head Island. Chris is trustworthy and honest and his trips are great. May River Excursions has my highest recommendation!

Met Capt. Matt at the dock just as promised. We live here, but had friends in and wanted to do something different. This was the best choice we could have made. It was so much fun and we learned so much from Capt. Matt. Out on the water, away from the hustle and bustle, was just so enjoyable. We saw some dolphins, and although we didn't get blue crabs, we got stone crabs and had a nice appetizer of crab claws that evening. We can't say enough about Capt. Matt. We had read the reviews for the trip and everyone talked about Capt. Chris and how nice he was, so I was a little apprehensive when he told me he was Chris' brother, but honestly, he made our trip so enjoyable!!!!! Such a nice young man and very knowledgeable about the area. We're already planning a shrimping trip later this year and we will definitely be asking for Capt. Matt. Thanks again, Capt. Matt for a great adventure!!!

Our kids had a great time pulling in the crab traps and learning about the different species. Captain Chris went out of his way to make sure everyone in our group had a great time.

A wonderful learning experience! They were so excited about pulling out the crate and learning the best way to pick up the crab...and not get pinched! Our eight year old would like to do it again tomorrow!

If you are in Savannah/Hilton Head area this is a must. Seeing everything from the water gives you a real appreciation of how beautiful the area is. Chris was amazing and knowledgable. We crabbed ,got about a dozen keepers,and fished and did some sightseeing.
