This was something I wasn’t so sure about booking but ended up being the best thing we did all week. So much fun and so interesting! Captain Tripp knows his stuff and he made the trip so enjoyable.

Wow, what a fantastic experience!! We booked this kind of last minute but it was the highlight of our Charleston trip! It was overcast and a bit windy this day, but that didn’t affect a thing. Captain Luke was incredible. He answered all of our crazy obscure questions with ease and familiarity. He was funny! We found ourselves hanging on his every word during his educational mini lectures. His delivery was perfect and his maneuvering of the boat was expert. We learned a lot and really felt the history and beauty of the marshes and islands. We found shells on Morris island and walked along the shore. Honestly I could recommend this more. I’d go again any day. What a fantastic trip and a great guide. Loved everything about it.

Tour guide Josh was passionate about the area and was a wealth of knowledge. Morris Island has TONS of shells, more than any of the public beaches around the area. We saw many dolphin along our waterways too.

My husband and I went on the Charleston Marsh Eco Boat Cruise. It was great! Captain Josh was very knowledgeable and a very pleasant guide. He shared a lot of information on the ecosystem that was very interesting. He was excellent when answering questions. We saw many dolphin and spent an hour on Morris island. The whole process was simple from buying tickets through TripAdvisor to parking and finding the boat. It was a highlight of our trip!

Our guide, Luke, was excellent, very informative. Morris Island was great to walk around collecting sea shells and viewing the lighthouse. Fortunately we saw dolphins. We would highly recommend.
