“10 times better than a downtown carriage ride!”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

I cant remember how many times we have been on the marsh tour, but every time is special and new. It's a great tour for everybody, elderly and children of all ages. The boat is big and safe and Anton is a wonderful tour guide. The kids will love it so much they wont even realize they are leaning something about the coastal environment If you want to see Dolphins up close and personal, get in on this cool tour and skip the hot horse and buggies.

“A MUST do in Folly Beach!”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

My family and I have had the pleasure of taking this tour twice with Captain Anton. While there are several places to take a boat ride through the salt water marshes, Captain Anton provides much more than just a ride. With a laid back persona he imparts his vast knowledge of the marsh with humor and a real enthusiasm that's refreshing in this day and age. On our last trip (Augut, 2012) we had multiple dolphin sightings, saw a turtle, a vast number of birds, heard shrimp via the hydrophone, and had great shelling on Morris Island. My daughter inparticular loves taking this tour as she started at the College of Charleston this fall as a marine biology major. If you're in Folly Beach, this is the one thing you really have to do!

Went out with Capt. Anton to celebrate my son's 15th birthday. Gorgeous November day and we had a great time. Laid back, knowledgeable and fun captain!! Will definitely take another trip. Dolphins were what I wanted to see and this trip did not disappoint. Great shelling too!

“Favorite Charleston area experience!”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

For several years we have been visiting the Charleston, SC area and each time we visit we try to find something new to see or do; this tour has been our favorite, so far. Captain Anton provides a laid-back experience sprinkled with science and local history - perfect for people who want to learn more about the ecosystem and the area. We listened to snapping shrimp on the hydraphone, got a close-up view of some dolphins and watched silvery schools of fish leaping out of the water. Our stop on Morris Island got us some great up-close shots of the lighthouse and a handful of sand dollars. We've been telling all of our friends about the fun we had and plan to sign-up for another tour next time we visit Charleston.

“Great boat tour!”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

My wife, 4 kids and I had a fantactic tour with Capt. Anton. We saw plenty of dolphins and enjoyed listening to the dolphins and shrimp via the hydraphone. We got to see Fort Sumter from Charleston harbor. We toured both ends of Morris Island, which was great for shelling. Capt. Anton has a vast knowledge of the marsh, the birds, and animals, which he shared. We highly recommend this trip, especially for families. Thanks again Capt. Anton for a great time.
