Explore the salt-marshes of Charleston with your professional naturalist captain aboard our spacious Carolina Skiff. Our open deck and high safety rails make this boat ideal for families and small groups, and our shallow draft allows us to go where most boats can’t. Our US Coast Guard Master Captains are professional naturalist with a passion for sharing their knowledge of local ecology and history. There are lots of boats for hire in the Charleston area, the difference really comes down to the captain you hire. Let us show you the low-country as we see it!
Morris Island Lighthouse and Dolphin Cruise
Dolphins + undeveloped beach island + historic lighthouse = a great day on the water in Charleston, South Carolina! Our 24ft Carolina Skiff offers a spacious and quiet ride as we cruise the salt marsh estuaries on the way to historic Morris Island. We will take our time on the way to the island to explore creeks and look for bottlenose dolphin, wading birds, and other wildlife. Throw a cast net or pull a crab pot to get a closer look at whats in the water! We will land the boat on Morris Island and have time for exploring the undeveloped beach. The history is deep on this eroding barrier island in the shadow of the Morris Island Lighthouse. Today the lighthouse lies stranded off the island, completely surrounding by the atlantic ocean. This tour can be booked for just about anytime, but low-tide often provides the best wildlife viewing opportunities, and maximum beach access. In the summer months, early morning charters are a great bet to be the first footprints in the sand and to beat the heat!
