Enjoyed the tour very much, Captain Don was very informative and was determined to find the Dolphins (which he did). It was a beautiful day and we would do it again We would like to come back next year and do the Gullah tour.

It depends on the trip. There are beach shuttles for $25, guided tours for $50. Well worth it.
