“Shell excursion Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Bret took our family out to Morris Island for a shelling tour, we had a great time! He was extremely knowledgeable about the area and history. We saw quite a few dolphins and he slowed down so our kids could get a good look. I would use his service again!

“Late review, but GREAT harbor tour!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Apologies to Captain Brett for my delay - wife, mom, dad and myself toured first part of May 2014. Capt Brett was very knowledgeable, did a GREAT job of knowing where the dolphins were and were going, very easy to talk to, etc. We were all surprised on how many dolphins we were able to see and how close they were to the boat. Would HIGHLY recommend Harborview Charters to anyone in the Charleston area who wants a quality tour that is worth every dollar. We actually received a discounted rate, but would have had NO PROBLEM paying full price. Awesome tour!!

“Great Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

If you are going to drive 14 hours to see the ocean, you might as well round it out with a trip to Morris Island with Capt Bret! We all had a blast on our shelling tour, and would love to do it again if ever in the area. Well worth the money!!!!!!

“Great Shelling adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

We contacted Capt. Brett while we were in Charleston for vacation. He was able to get us in for a private shelling expedition while we were in town, on very short notice which we appreciated.

He was very helpful to point out what we should be looking for, shark's teeth, the names of the shells, and a number of artifacts that could wash ashore from both the Civil and revolutionary wars. He also provided some great history of Morris Island and some great insight on local fishing to my husband. Very professional, great boat, would use again.
