What you'll do

A fun boat trip for couples or friends that would like to try a variety of local restaurants on the water! Our 3 hour boat tour starts at the Bristol Marina where you will board our comfortable, one of a kind 27 ft Carolina skiff. After you’ve settled and grabbed your favorite cold beverage or snack, we will begin our cruise down the Ashley River to one of our favorite local Waterfont restaurants for a drink and snack. Along the way we will enjoy the sights and the sounds of beautiful marsh birds, dolphin and other Lowcountry wildlife. Once we spot dolphin swimming, we will stop the boat to watch and enjoy them in their natural habitat. When we are ready, we will continue our cruise to another local waterfront restaurant for a drink and snack. After enjoying some local drinks and Lowcountry eats, we will also see the beautiful historic homes on the water as we continue our leisurely cruise back to the marina and continue to enjoy the views that only Charleston has to offer. Our boat tours are the best way to cover a large area of the local waterways and search for dolphins, shorebirds, and other exciting wildlife. During the boat tour we regularly see Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins, pelicans, ospreys, crabs and much more.

Chad

Hi, I’m Captain Chad. I’m a Charleston local who spent most of their childhood on the water. My love for the ocean drives my passion to learn, teach and share the unique beauty of the Charleston waterways as only a local can do. I graduated in the top 5 of my USCG training and excelled to be a Master Captain as well as a certified surfing instructor for 15+ years, stand up paddle board guide for 6 years, and avid fisherman since a very young age who loves to share the beauty of Charleston with locals and tourist alike. A lifetime of experience on the water has given me a keen eye for spotting dolphin, exploring the wildlife in the creeks and marshes, shelling and finding sharks teeth and other artifacts. I’d love to share with you where the locals eat, play and make memories.
