We had a great time! Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful, the water was beautiful, and we got to get away from everything when we went between the shores. I recommend it.

I was visiting Foley Beach in late August and decided to take the sunset kayaking tour offered by Flipper Finders. I couldn't have asked for a better guide in Charlie. It was my second time kayaking and he helped me overcome my anxiety and successfully guided me through my mishaps. He also had lots of cool stories and ecological facts... More

We ended up being the only people to sign up for our time, so it was pretty much a private tour! Charlie was an excellent tour guide who knew tons of information about the area and answered many of the questions we had. I would highly recommend using this company to tour the marshy areas around Folly Beach!

There is no one else's knowledge of the inlet of Folly I would trust than Captain Richard. This is our third trip and we for the third time in a row saw so many dolphins and amazing nature scenes. Thank you Capt Richard!
