This was the best trip. Boat ride was fun with plenty of dolphin spotting, the captain was extremely knowledgeable about the wildlife and the area. The time on Morris island was incredible and we weren’t rushed to leave etc. I would come back to Charleston just to take friends out on this excursion!

Captain Luke was absolutely wonderful!!! Cool and funny a natural teacher and veritable font of information on the spectacular wildlife and landscape. What this outfit is doing is crucial and this tour should be mandatory for anyone visiting the Charleston area for the first time. We learned so much and had so much fun and are in awe of the stunning beauty. Definitely will come back and do it again!!!
