Overview

Visit an unspoiled barrier island. Who knows what Mother Nature has in store? A lighthouse, eagles, dolphin, maybe even a turtle. You Plantation will​ have one and a half hours to leisurely stroll an unspoiled beach, accessible only by boat. Peace and quiet galore! One of our most popular tours!

We loved taking the boat ride to the island and searching for shells..we only stayed on the island for one hour and all of us wished we could have stayed on the island longer..Doug was very knowledgeable of the history of the area.

Last night my Husband and I took the brand new eco sunset tour and it was the greatest. From the moment we boarded, until we returned from seeing a beautiful sunset we were treated as honored guest. Do not miss this experience.

A most enjoyable day! The tour boat took us out to an uninhabited pristine island where we were able to roam around looking for shells, shark teeth, and taking photographs. Shells, driftwood and memories galore. Our captain and his tour guide were pleasant, knowledgeable and...More

We had a great time on this tour. It was cold on the boat but we brought a blanket. The island was cool to visit and our tour guides were awesome.
