We had an amazing time on our dophin tour! Our captain went out of his way to create a great experience for us and our children, and his knowledge of the ecology and history of the area truly deepened our appreciation for Edisto Island and the ACE Basin. Thanks so much!

Captain Dan gave us an education we will never forget. The dolphins were in full swing that day- We would definitely hang out with Dan again. Maybe a fishing excursion next trip to Edisto

It was a beautiful morning and Captain Don was very knowledgeable about the area. We got to see many dolphins frolicking in the waters.

Two groups totaling 23 people took a cruise with Botany Bay Ecotours. Both of our guides, Meg and Don, were very professional, knowledgeable, and entertaining. I highly recommend them as a fun thing to do, appropriate for all ages, when in Edisto Beach.

My daughter is working on a marine biology project for Girl Scouts. Captain Meg was extremely knowledgeable and answered all of our many questions on the dolphin tour. Meg was patient and helpful. I highly recommend Botany Bay Ecotours!

Excellent! Ron was very knowledgeable! We explored many of the creeks, saw and hung around a dolphin pod and enjoyed the peace and quiet of nature. We would definitely take another tour when we return.

My family had a wonderful outing with my Mom to celebrate her birthday. We saw many dolphins and learned about the area. Sarah told us a lot about her life on the island and sang to my Mom too!
