Informative tour, worth every penny. Cap'n Rod is an easy going, affable fellow who shares lots of local history. The tour passes the USS Harvest Moon wreckage site, old rice fields and plantation sites. We saw a huge alligator in the bay. Your destination, North Island is peaceful and pristine. If you walk around the southern tip and cross the... More

I had initially set this tour up for another day and had to reschedule because of a storm. They sent an email cancelling the trip for the day and did a follow up call. It was easy to reschedule and they offered to refund your money. I recommend take the trip. Cap'n Rod is very informative, provides a lot of... More

What a fabulous four hours of just good-ole' story tellin', laughin', and learnin' with the great Captain Rod! We saw dolphins and bald eagles and gators, got to the Shell Island and found quite a few neat shells -- but most of the really cute small ones were already inhabited by tiny hermit crabs so of course you leave them...

The cruise was wonderful, and Cap'n Rod's stories were quite entertaining. He shared so much history of the Grand Strand region, especially the Georgetown area. We'll take his cruise again when our kids come to visit next year.

Cap'n Rod can sure spin a story. We only got to tour one of the plantations, but we got to see several from the boat. Cap'n Rod told us the history of the land, plantations, and families around the bay. It was a fun adventure.

Absolutely loved this excursion! Captain Rod was extremely knowledgeable about history and nature and a riot to entertain us! We saw dolphins and countless alligators in their natural habitat. We collected shells from the beach until we couldn't carry anymore! It began to rain as we headed back to dock and he kept us onboard until it was okay for... More

A great way to view area's you can not see in your car. Cap'n Rod is amazingly knowledgeable of the history of the low country and its contributions to the development of our wonderful country. The brief stop for shelling was a hit with most on board. We even saw a GATOR. If you have a few hours to kill... More

Friends told us about this tour and it delivered. Captain Doug was entertaining and knowledgeable. "Shell Island" was a blast. Lots of shells of all sizes and types and they were easy pickings if you don't mind getting wet. For the best experience, wear your swim suit and wade in on the side of the island away from where the... More
