Sail the barrier island salt marshes

Folly Beach, South Carolina, United States

Experience hosted by Johnny

  1. 2 hours

What you'll do

Dolphin Day Sail
During the two-hour sail, we'll see dolphin, pelicans, herons, osprey and egrets as well as other wildlife common to the low country. We can beach the cat at one the nearby isolated islands and do some swimming too if you like. If you'd like the experience of sailing first hand, your captain will give you the helm and with some instruction, you will be sailing a very quick catamaran! Your captain is an experienced maritime guide who can tell you all about the maritime history and culture of Charleston and the low country so feel free to ask questions! Bring a camera and feel free to BYOB! We have a cooler on board.

Great way to see the marshes and landscape! Johnny was super nice and a great captain. We had foggy weather but Johnny navigated the boat smoothly and the eerie atmosphere had a cool vibe! We’d definitely come back and go in more excursions this spring and summer! Thanks again! Cherry on top as seeing a dolphin at the very end of our trip!

Captain Johnny showed up early. He was very friendly and informative. You could tell he was passionate about the wildlife and boating. Would recommend to anyone who wants to see some Dolphins (we saw 4!) and have a relaxing couple hours on the water.

It was a beautiful afternoon of sailing. It was just me on board so it was very relaxing- just what I needed. I even got to steer! Johnny was very professional and knowledgeable. I highly recommend.

We had a wonderful time! Johnny is a great captain and is happy to share insightful knowledge about the marshes. We visited in October and it was very warm when we left but cooling off significantly as we were heading back to the dock. Should have packed a sweatshirt!

This was a relaxing and meandering journey through the Salt Marshes and exactly what we needed after a busy week of sightseeing. Definitely recommend to anyone new to the area.

Johnny is such a nice person, his Chi is perfect for a sail boat captain. We all really enjoyed our trip, he was very fun to be around and dealt really well with our two children. We will definitely be back :-)
