Dolphin Boat Tour & Sunset Cruise

Come on board as we explore the creeks and marshes behind Folly Beach and search for the wild Atlantic bottlenose dolphins that live here year-round. We offer both daytime trips and special sunset boat cruise experiences, where you can take in the sunset from a truly unique perspective on the water.

Your experienced captain tells you about this beautiful ecosystem, the local history, and our famous dolphins while always operating the vessel to be safe and respectful of the resident wildlife.

During the tour, be on the lookout for strand feeding, a dolphin hunting technique unique to this part of the world. Explore these backwaters and navigate to historic Morris Island, where you can hunt for fossils and sand dollars. Join us on our signature dolphin tour for an experience you will never forget!

  • Our boat tour covers a large area of local waterways as we search for dolphins, shorebirds, pirates and other exciting wildlife. We’ll make our way to historic Morris Island Lighthouse where you will have a chance to walk the beach of this beautiful uninhabited barrier island. It’s a great place for shelling or just going for a peaceful walk on an uninhibited island. We have two boats, a 12 passenger Carolina Skiff and a 6 passenger Sea Pro.
