A must do for visitors and locals alike - ask for Capt. Joey

This was our second time out with Charleston Outdoor Adventures and Captain Joey. One of the best ways for friends and family visiting us in CHS to learn about our estuaries, enjoy Folly Creek, and see the preserved and largely unchanged beauty of Morris Island. Go during low tide to enjoy numerous dolphin sightings.

Excellent trip. Saw more dolphins than we could have ever imagined. But what made the trip so exceptional was Captain Dallas and his knowledge of the birds, the dolphins and the area. He made the trip so much fun.

We have taken this boat ride three times now, and it is a perfect trip! Whenever guests come to visit us from out of state, I always think to bring them on this cruise. It’s the perfect mix of boat and island exploring time. The guides are always so knowledgeable (and entertaining too)! We would definitely recommend this tour. Perfect for kids too! Tip: Bring a bag to carry your shell finds in!
