This tour was wonderful. We really enjoyed the boat ride out to the island. The Captain and our guide were excellent. I highly recommend this trip to anyone. Our 4 year old daughter absolutely loved it too!! Morris Island was covered with shells. It was so much fun!!

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.

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!

This trip was thoroughly enjoyed. The naturalist on board was enthusiastic and informative. Strolling on the island beach and shelling was excellent as she pointed out objects. Wonderful weather certainly helped a lot. If anything was missing it was more history, but this is an Eco-tour, not a history tour. Go if you can.

One short stop on the way to Morris Island to check a crab trap. Zero dolphin touring, although they pointed out one dorsal fin as we sped past. Just a few minutes on Morris Island, and nowhere near the lighthouse. Won't be going on this one again.

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.

It was hotter than Johnny Blue Blazes in downtown Chucktown, but out in the harbor aboard the Palmetto things were comfortable. Our group enjoyed the open views this boat provides as well as the freedom to move around once aboard. The kids had a great experience learning about different forms of sea life aboard the boat as well as exploring the beach on Morris Island. The adults were impressed by the knowledgeable staff and the close up view of dolphins that our captain provided us. I have never seen so many dolphins in one place at one time. Very cool! I liked this tour far better than the tours provided on the bigger boats, but I am a science teacher, so this tour was a better fit for me.

Perfect tour for a multi-generational group!

This was a very successful event for the whole family (three generations.) There was something of interest for everyone and the children (ages 4 to 9) absolutely loved it! We all learned things about the ecology of the Charleston waters and beaches as well as enjoyed a lovely sightseeing tour of the harbor. We highly recommend this tour for families.
