“Great fun finding flippers!”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Last night we went out on the boat with Captain Richard and his sweet dog Lizzy. It was my not quite 2 year old son's first ride on a boat and Captain Richard was very patient with him. We had a great walk on Morris island and picked up some wonderful shells. We also got to see plenty of wildlife :) A stingray jumped right out of the water a put on a great show. We also saw a grouping of dolphins fishing up again the beach. Definately recommend this trip!

“Welcoming, Helpful, and So much fun!”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

Four of "the girls" - 50+ took a two-hour lesson with Andy. Sometimes, as people get older, we feel a little intimidated walking into somewhere new, ready for a little adventure. We had among us varying degrees of experience with paddling of different types ranging from absolutely none to whitewater rafting. Everyone made us feel welcome, capable, and we were all extremely comfortable for the whole trip. Two of us loved it so much we returned the next day to take our own five hour tour, heading down the Folly River all the way to the beach, stopping on sand bars for a swim, and exploring a couple of creeks. It was amazing to be following dolphins toward the sea at low tide. The whole experience was outstanding. Thanks for everthing!

“Sunset Kayak”
Reviewed August 7, 2012 via mobile

While we were too early for the sunset, it was a great trip. We saw a dolphin and our guide was extremely knowledgeable about everything we saw from sponges to fiddler crabs. Definitely recommended.

“Flipper finders”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

Took a boat tour with my 3 year old and 6 month old along with 4 adults. A great time was had by all. Captain Richard made it an enjoyable trip for everyone. This is all my daughter talks about and was her favorite part of our entire week of activities. We saw multiple dolphins and went shell hunting on Morris Island. Would recommend without hesitation. Will be back next year.

“A great experience”
Reviewed July 21, 2012 via mobile

Flipper finder is a great place to see the beautiful waters at Folly Beach. Our tour guide Andy was very nice and extremely knowledgable about the wild life and environment. Since the wind had picked up that morning, Andy took us on another route that allowed us to enjoy the water without paddling against the wind. Overall, I recommend this place if you really want to learn about interesting facts about wildlife/environment while enjoying the scenery at Folly :)
