A bit pricy but worth it. Bring a chair, wine and a towel. ( it would be great if they supplied that!) Bring salt for the boil which was bland. Cheerful captain. Wonderful dolphin sittings.

We had to bundle up, but the tour was great. Weatherly taught us a lot and we had a great time finding shells on the huge sandbar. And seeing dolphins five feet away was awesome! I would definitely do this tour again.

Capt. Weatherly was pleasant and super accommodating to design a trip that accounted for the weather and went to our selected destination.

I appreciate the accessibility of the crew and willingness to accommodate our needs. We were a photo group and being able to get out on Morris Island for sunrise was great.
