We loved the sunset dolphin tour. Made a stop on Capers Island. Excellent tour guides-fun and very knowledgeable. We brought kids from age 7-15 and they all loved it. They allow coolers so that's a plus. Highly recommend

We had a great time touring the salt marsh and capers island. We learned sooo much about low country wildlife and enjoyed walking the beach. It was obvious our guide was a teacher; he just has a different classroom now.

We took the morning tour of the tidal marsh and Boneyard Beach. Robert was a knowledgeable and entertaining tour guide and was great with the kids on the boat. I recommend this for anyone including families with kids age about 5 and up.

Definately recommend this tour! Our guide was funny and informative. Quick ride to one of the barrier islands. Go in the morning as the island is less crowded. Already looking forward to doing this tour again!

For our family of 14, including 6 kids, we chartered a "family fun" tour. Everyone had an amazing time! Happened to go out at low tide, so we saw oysters, caught crabs, checked out tide pools, and explored an undeveloped beach. Robert was so patient...More

We're locals... really local... about 2 minutes from the Isle of Palms Marina where the tour departs. Today's tour was the most recent we've done with Barrier Island. We've done several as a family and also booked several large groups as a tour company. We...More

Took the boat ride out to one of the barrier islands to do some old fashioned crabbing with fishing line. The tide was high, so didn't catch many crabs, but did manage to catch about 10. Katherine, our captain, Joseph were all very helpful as...More
