Our family (wife and 2 kids under 12) did this trip on 3/29. It was a great excursion and Captain Howie and his helper were fantastic and had some great stories.

The kids loved combing the beach for sand dollars and sharks teeth (found plenty of both) and nothing was too much trouble.

Captain Howie even let our kids steer the boat on the way back and my son can't stop going on about this! He loved it.

Would recommend anyone do this trip - they are great!

My family (husband and two kids, 8 & 9 years old, and our dog) and I really loved this trip! Captain Howie was friendly and knowledgeable. He was very welcoming and even took time to sit and talk to the kids. He gave us a lot of background on Fort Sumter and Fort Moultrie during the boat ride, as well as about Morris Island itself. Marnie the marine biologist made the trip even better, showing us exactly how to find shark teeth (we all found handfuls!), and identifying shells and crabs for us on our beach walk. The rest of the crew was also very friendly, nice, and helpful. We had an educational and highly enjoyable trip with Captain Howie!

First of all Caption Howie and his crew really know their stuff! These people treat you as family! He has a great rapport with adults, and he must be a dad or former teacher as he is so great with the kids! They take you to Morris islandand on the way you get to see lots of dolphins. Once there you get to explore the island and learn about Ft. Sumter where the cival war started as well about the nature and find buried treasure. His tour stays far longer than the other two tours that were there. You will return with lots of goodies and knowledge about Charleston and Morris island. Cannot say enough about this captain, he is worth his weight in gold!

Based on all the positive reviews, my family of four (2 adults and kids ages 11 and 13) booked the Morris Island outing. We went yesterday and loved it! It was very clear that Captain Howie has a passion for boating, history and nature. He also seems committed to quality and was always trying to ensure the comfort and enterainment of all his guests. Marine biologist Marnie was terrific too! We would absolutely take a tour with Captain Howie again!

If you look up "shark obsessed" in the dictionary, there is a picture of my son. Capt Howie and biologist Marnie took us on a great tour. We saw dolphins, heard stories about history, got to see all sorts of incredible sea creatures on Morris Island, collected beautiful sea shells and best of all, found 15 shark teeth. Full of charisma and great fun! This trip was worth every penny. I have recommended it to everyone I saw in Charleston and even someone we ran into on the way back home. You won't be sorry. Thanks for a great trip Howie and Marnie!
