Description

Join a certified naturalist on a 2-hour nature boat tour throughout Charleston's waterways. The small group will discover Charleston's abundant coastal wildlife, while cruising Charleston Harbor as well as landing on Morris Island where you will be able to explore on foot and look for shells and hopefully, find some shark's teeth. On the excursion, get a glimpse of Bottlenose dolphins and pull your crab pots to see how many crabs you caught that day. You will also see the amazing picturesque views of the skyline of Charleston and the Atlantic Ocean.  

Depart from Charleston Maritime Center to begin your nature boating adventure. Arrive at the dock and take a 2-hour guided eco-tour with a certified naturalist.  

On this tour of Charleston Harbor and its amazing waterways and incredible uninhabited islands, the guide will show you numerous species of shorebirds such as Great Blue Herons, Snowy Egrets, Eastern Brown Pelicans, and Least Terns in their natural habitat. You will also see dolphins that are often at play as they demonstrate their presence in the creeks and the harbor.

The small group will also see Morris Island, an 840-acre island that lies in the outer reaches of the harbor, which was strategically built because of its location in the American Civil War. Morris Island was heavily fortified to defend Charleston harbor and now is home to a beautiful ecosystem with amazing picturesque views.  

The group will also explore Barrier Island as the naturalists will continue to explore the beach with you and explain the habitats of the abundant wildlife as seen in Charleston Harbors’ estuaries. After the tour, you will be taken back to the dock to continue your great day in Charleston.
