We had a great time on the boat. A super smart skipper who told us lots of interesting stuff about the nature and the surroundings. We saw dolphins and turtles and our kids just loved it.

We saw tons of dolphins so that was great. They weren't very active as it was pretty cold and not too close. The tour seems to be more of what the customers want, as there were 5 of us we had the boat to ourselves....More

Steve was our guide and we couldn't have asked for more. Saw Dolphins and collected a lot of sand dollars . Gave us history and a few hints of where to go on the island.

We had a really fun kayak tour of the Folly River. Charlie was a great guide, and super knowledgeable about the area’s ecosystem and wildlife. Highly recommend Flipper Finders. Thanks Charlie!

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
