“Great Shelling adventure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

We contacted Capt. Brett while we were in Charleston for vacation. He was able to get us in for a private shelling expedition while we were in town, on very short notice which we appreciated.

He was very helpful to point out what we should be looking for, shark's teeth, the names of the shells, and a number of artifacts that could wash ashore from both the Civil and revolutionary wars. He also provided some great history of Morris Island and some great insight on local fishing to my husband. Very professional, great boat, would use again.

“wonderful evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

We had a 2 hour evening dolphin watch/sunset tour with Captain Brett. Brett was professional, skilled, informative and just a nice guy. We were able to see many dolphins, all the forts , old charleston from the water and a beautiful sunset. The trip was private and comfortable. We were able to bring along a cooler of refreshments and nibblies too.

“Amazing shelling on Morris Island with Capt Brett”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014

We took the Morris Island tours for shelling and it was amazing. Capt Brett took time to share the history of the Charleston Harbor and find dolphins to view on our way. Once on the island he shared its rich history and hints to finding the best spots for conk shells, sharks teeth and sand dollars. Our children were not disappointed we returned with a great selection of beautiful shells. Would recommend this tour to anyone, especially those with kids, are are 3, 8 and 11 and loved every minute. Will definitely be booking more tours for dolphin watching and fishing expeditions. A+++++ service and attitude, what true hospitality should be with every company :)

“Amazing creatures”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

We took the dolphin sighting tour with Captain Brett and loved every minute of it. Four adults planned a 90-minute tour of the dolphin pods in the harbor . . . BUT the wind was strong and the water choppy. Our captain certainly knew where those amazing creatures would be hanging out and took us there by the smoothest route possible. Near the Morris Island Lighthouse we watched about 20 dolphins feed and play. Captain Brett is very knowledgeable about the dolphins, the harbor, and all of the attractions of this environment. He is a former Coast Guardsman with a nice boat, and a love of Charleston's waterways.

“Shelling Expedition”

Very nice trip with Captain Brett. He showed us how to spot conch shells and shark's teeth and gave us time to wander on our own. Will definitely take my family out when they visit.
