Excellent guide described the wildlife activity of the marsh lands around Isle of Palms on the boat ride. Stopped at Capers Island for a walk. Very calm and serene adventure. Guide was superb with the several elementary school age children on the boat.

Captain Stingray was informative and helpful. Getting out on the inner coastal waterways on a boat was a new perspective. We had a great guide that provided great information but wasn't talking the entire time. They stopped the boat in an area as we watched...More
