We took my parents and our children (age 15 and 10) on a sunset cruise and all of us really enjoyed it. Beautiful sky, lots of dolphins, and interesting information about the island and surrounding area. Would highly recommend it!

Captain Don was a wonderful tour guide and host! An amazing evening for our entire family taking in breathtaking sunset views, learning about the area and watching dolphins play. A 'must do' activity on Edisto Island!

My family did the Gullah tour on Thursday. It was wonderful. We got to meet an Edisto legend, and hear about her growing up. Sarah Burnell sang for the Dolphins, and we got them! Quite a pod, if not more!

Meg did a fabulous job of giving us a tour of the sound, creek and surroundings. We got VERY close to dolphin and learned a ton of things. This is so worthwhile and something you'll want to do again and again
