The captain was great! Saw many dolphins and the most beautiful sunset. Went to Morris Island and completely got lost in the beauty of it all. Small intimate group which is nice.

Captain Richard was an awesome guide and was very entertaining! It was my husband and I, our 15 year old daughter, my parents and another couple. We all had a fantastic time and got great pictures of the marshes and dolphins!!

We really enjoyed our kayaking trip with Charlie! He was a great guide. We only saw a few splashes from dolphins due to the current and high tide but the trip was still excellent!

Certainly a bathing suit, but bring lots of sunscreen and a hat! We did not have a chance to get out of the kayak on our trip, but depending on the direction you go you may have the opportunity.

It's our off season but if we are around and the weather is nice I'm sure we could arrange something. What type of tour are you looking to do? How many people? Best way to communicate if via email. flipperfinders gmail
