The entire family had an awesome time. We had people from 68 to 6 on the boat and we all left with a smile on our faces. We learned a little history of the area and saw dolphins and a light house along the way....More

Captain Steve took us out on the river it was beautiful. He taught us so much about the area. We stopped and looked for shells and swam while we were there we were able to see dolphins. It was so much fun!

This was a great early evening adventure out on the water with Richard and Lizzy. Saw dolphins around every bend. Richard was very informative and friendly. I highly recommend this trip.

We had such a wonderful trip with Captain Richard. He is very knowledgeable about the area and made the trip very fun. We saw a lot of dolphins (and baby dolphins). Morris Island is beautiful and serene. This made our vacation!

Captain Richard did an excellent job putting us on dolphins. His historical perspective and respect for the animals, coupled with great taste in music, made for an enjoyable few hours on the water!

Certainly a bathing suit, but bring lots of sunscreen and a hat! We did not have a chance to get out of the kayak on our trip, but depending on the direction you go you may have the opportunity.

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
