I had a wonderful time on this tour! Our guide, Weatherly, was warm, engaging, and knowledgeable. The scenery was tranquil and lovely. I especially enjoyed our stop at Morris Island, where we able to get out of the boat and walk around to collect seashells. I highly recommend this tour!

I am writing this review for the second time, so I apologize if this post twice, I think my first review did not publish. This tour was excellent we saw plenty of dolphins and my 9 year old granddaughter got to collect seashells. In fact she made me a necklace, with one of the shells, which I am wearing writing this review.Our guide was awesome, I would diffendenly recommend this tour!

We really enjoyed the tour and Captain Anton is a real character, highly knowledgeable he gave us lots of information about the History and habitat of the saltmarsh . We saw loads of birds and dolphins, some only feet from the boat. It was lovely to see the dolphins in the wild and not in a tank or pool. Anton knows the saltmarsh well and took us through the shallows, helping us to see as much as possible. We had a walk on a small island next to the Morris Island Lighthouse that is only accessible by boat with great views of the Lighthouse and the Bay. At the end of the tour Captain Anton gave us a Rap about the local area and the storm that hit many years ago. The tour was one of the highlights of our holiday and combined with a look round Folly Island and some great food was hard to beat.

Great tour of the salt marsh and Morris Lighthouse. Captain Phil was knowledgeable and fun! Loved that we had time to explore the beach near the lighthouse. Great time and we learned a lot about the area and it's history.

Fun trip. Weatherly was a great captain. We saw dolphins stranding fish, learned about ousters, caught a blue crab and walked the beach to look for shells at Morris Island. The directions were spot on and everything about the trip was easy.

Weatherly was our guide, and she was absolutely fantastic. You can tell that she was made for this job. My friends and I are local, but we wanted to do something fun for our friend's birthday weekend. She and I had never seen Morris Lighthouse up close, so this was such a treat. The weather was great, the dolphins were out jumping, there was even a rare sea turtle sighting. I could not recommend this enough! This is a must do in Charleston!

Excellent! Very intimate and extraordinary small group tour. Captain Phil was very well educated and personable. We saw many dolphin groups quite close to our boat. Exploring Morris Island was peaceful and beautiful. This hidden gem is not to be missed!

Highly recommend! The guide was fantastic and made it memorable for all the kids. Only thing was a mixup with our booking date/time apparently Viator doesn't immediately sync with tour company, but it actually ended up working out for the best.

The tour was great! We saw crabs and lots of dolphins. The Captain knew all kinds of history and general info about the area. He was very entertaining. We were able to pick up seashells on the island as well. It was a nice trip. I and #39;d do it again!
