Great cruise and guides. Good information.

Guides were enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The cruise was nice and comfortable, not overcrowded. Points of interest described on the way out, effort to find wildlife. Saw a few dolphins, pelicans, and pulled a crab trap up with blue crab in it. A little disappointed in lack of collectable shells on the island as this is why we went on the cruise, everywhere else you aren't allowed to keep the shells. Otherwise nice trip.

Good trip on a hot day.

The nature trip to Sullivan Island started at 2 pm on a very warm day. But once we got out of the harbor the weather cooled down considerable - breeze mostly. On the way over, we stopped at a crab pot and looked at the caught crabs. Our guide did a good job of describing the blue crabs that were caught. Next we landed at Sullivan Island. We walked near the shore for approx. 30 mins. looking for shells, etc. One can see Ft. Sumter and the outline of Charleston from here. Good place to get pictures.

We had an awesome time on the Ecotour we recently took. The crewmen were very knowledgeable concerning the animals we encountered and the history of Charleston. The kids loved visting Morris Island and looking for shells! We hope to try the Ghost Tour next time!

Excellent afternoon tour.

This was an excellent afternoon tour with a friendly and knowledgable crew and tour guide. We were able to see dolphins, learned about differnt crabs from the crab pot, and were shown a myriad of sea life from a collection on board. The walk on the beach at Morris Island to look for shells and sharks teeth was very enjoyable. My husband and I would highly recommend this tour for families with children, and anyone with an interest in nature.

That was one of the best tours ever!! The fact that the crab trap was pulled and you were able to get off at the island was perfect!!! I would be the poster woman for this tour any day!

The naturalist spent quite some time with us combing the beach on Morris Island to find shark's teeth. He was a good guide and the boat and tour were informative.

Had signed up for this trip thinking we would be going through the marsh area but we misread the trip description. Our bad! That being said, we did have a great time on this tour. Katie, the naturalist, was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of information with us. We really enjoyed Morris Island. We were lucky to see the horeshoe crabs on the beach. Loved seeing all the different terns also. Thanks for a wonderful time.

Not a tour - just a boat ride

This was not a tour - there was no narrative, no information about what we were seeing, not even a description of the four points we traveled to in the harbor. It was a boat ride, with a cash bar and sorry snacks. While I enjoyed the ride I was expecting a tour. Not recommended

Pretty good but..

A lovely boat ride, out to a wild island, great 30 minute beach walk. The guides were very nice, but the animal content was limited - saw 2 crabs, 2 types of birds and one dolphin - the fin only! Would have liked more animal content... Would do again though, for the island if nothing else..

This excursion was great. Fantastic views, informative, and the barrier island walk was really fun. The crew was very friendly and Ally our naturalist was funny and knowledgable. We would do this again!
