This was probably the highlight of my trip. This was a full moon kayaking trip. The staff was very helpful. Their knowledge of the area was top notch in explaining the natural surroundings and the animals. They were professional at getting everyone prepared for the paddle (gear and what to expect) Great story telling, great paddle will definitely be back. Oh and by the way, the full moon on folley creek was beautiful:)

We will definitely be paying COA and Captain Joe a visit on all future trips to the South Carolina Coast!!

Beautiful and surprisingly informative sunset tour. We learned a lot, saw beautiful dolphins and watched one of the most breathtaking sunsets!

My wife and I have wanted to SUP (Stand Up Paddleboard) for a long time now! Either no time or bad weather has kept us from doing so.. Well we were in Charleston, SC celebrating 10 years together and decided now was the time!!! On the night of 10 years we went out for a sunset SUP tour with Chris from C.O.A.! Was an awesome first time experience for us both! Night ended up being just the two of us on the tour, which made it all the more special! Chris was very cool and informative durning the tour. Pointing out endangered birds, local birds, dolphins, and even telling us about the oysters and how the live! Also pointed out ship wrecks along the way too. We highly enjoyed our tour and Chris's company and knowledge! Cant wait to get back out and SUP again! I would recommend C.O.A. for your outdoor activities if in the Charleston area. They offer kayak tours, boat tours, SUP tours, rental of equipment as well. Thank you again Chris!

We really enjoyed our sunset trip with Captain Joe. Unfortunately for us, storms were in the area so the captain was really keeping an eye on the weather. He told us upfront we might not get very far because of the weather, but we opted to give it a try. It was not just a boat ride to watch the sunset, it was a learning experience. The captain was informative telling us about the eco system and the surrounding area. We were lucky to see the dolphins, but not lucky enough to make it all the way out to the lighthouse before the storms rolled in. It was a great experience, and I would definitely go another cruise. Hopefully next time we will get to see the dolphins strand feeding and make it all the way out to the lighthouse!
