Charlie Was awesome! He had a lot of interesting information and was really nice. Thai was my first time to folly beach, and my first time on a boat. I loved it! Definitely plan to come back. Thank you Charlie!

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
