Our guide on the 10/7/2021 tour was terrific. He made the tour a success. The high point was the wildlife he showed us and the explanations he gave. Several of us on the boat ride -- myself included -- had "mobility issues" that made it difficult to get on & off the boat. He was very helpful and attentive.

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!
