Very enjoyable

Wonderful boat tour, my favourite thing that we did in Charleston. Apart from the early start it was thoroughly enjoyable. We saw dolphins, got to walk on Morris Island, looked in the crab pot and just generally had a nice time on the boat. The captain was a lovely person and the naturalist was great at explaining the eco system and wildlife and answering any questions. I would absolutely recommend this tour and I do think that it's worth every cent.

This was a wonderful activity for our family. We have three small kids and they loved seeing the dolphins and walking on the island. We collected some amazing sea shells and got a bonus of going by the Yorktown and under the Ravenell Bridge. Defintely recommend!

Guided Nature Tour & Cruise of Charleston Harbor
Tue, Jul 8, 14   2:00 PM ktrammell Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
My husband and I went on the tour as part of a quick trip that we made to see the city of Charleston. The captain and his assistant were amazing. During the tour we were able to watch numerous dolphins swimming along the shoreline and even past by Fort Sumter. The captain and his assistant provided great information about the surrounding area, how the businesses in the area effect or support the environment and pointed out a few interesting facts about the city as we went by. The hands on part of the ride was great and they did an fantastic job telling us about the blue crab and the spider crab that were in the cage. Once on the island we had free range of the beach and the assistant was there to answer any questions that we had. The boat ride was comfortable and we were able to move around to take pictures. I would recommend this trip to anyone interested in learning more about the area or just getting out on the water to explore.

Fun day but not much nature

The cruise was a fun trip. I wish there had been a little more nature to see. I was hoping to see more animals and have a greater explanation of the birds and plants. I would have liked to spend more time on the water and less time looking for shells on the island.

Interesting but too expensive

The captain could not find the float for the crab pot. The lecture on whelk eggs, devil's purse, etc. was audible only b/c we sat in front of the speaker. The unescorted walk on Morris yielded little more than a free walk on Folly Beach would. To make up for the no-show crab pot, the captain lingered off the Yorktown and gave us the ship's history, which was a good substitute. Both the captain and the biologist were a pleasure to talk with.

Fun Tour

My husband and our 9 year old granddaughter loved the tour around Charleston Harbor and out to Morris Island where with a little help from the tour guide (marine biologist), our granddaughter found a shark's tooth. We found many lovely shells, saw dolphin fins but unfortunately no crabs in the crab pot which was baited with chicken and pulled up by the ship's captain. Going and coming to Morris Island, we had a running commentary about sea life, some info on the USS Yorktown and tidbits about Ft Sumter. All in all a pleasant way to spend a couple of hour in the fresh air on the water.

Great staff, very knowledgeable, great boat ride, interesting facts along the way. The time on the island was pretty amazing! Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone. We were on board with a smaller group, maybe 25 or so, but the age range was vast and I believe everyone enjoyed it!
