This was a fun, relaxing, and informative experience. Captain Dave was friendly and knowledgeable, and Meg offered a lot of in depth information over the course of the tour. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

This was a very interesting tour. We saw Lots of dolphins. Our captain was very knowledgeable and hospitable. He gave us a great recommendation for lunch too. The Gullah part of the tour was a little weak, but Miss Sarah was very sweet.
