Boat rides

Hi there. We’re in a Kiawah now and loving it. We’re interested in some kind of boat ride, nothing fancy. We have a 6 yr old and a 14 yr old. Any thoughts about the historic boat tour in Charleston? Also, where might we find some fresh shrimp that we can cook up? Thank you!

Usually at this time of year I would say buy your shrimp off the docks at Cherry Point Seafood on Wadmalaw. However, shrimping season is delayed this year because of the terribly cold winter, so I don't know what they are bringing in, if anything. Here's an article from the Post and Courier ... https://www.postandcourier.com/news/cold-wat…

For local boat rides, including dolphin viewing, etc., you and your kids might enjoy a three hour charter out of nearby Bohicket Marina. https:/…SAILING-CHARTERS.pdf

In Charleston, harbor tours are available from various providers. Check with the Charleston forum for most up-to-date advice. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g541…

Try the folks at St. John’s Kayaks. They are on Betsy Kerrison, where you see the yellow kayak on the right, just before the traffic circle.

Thank you both! You all replied so quickly. I did not realize how much my 14 dislikes being on a boat so we went the aquarium route. I’m going to look into your seafood recommendation. There’s nothing like fresh shrimp! Thank you.

Any shrimp you may find locally, right now, will probably have come from GA/FL, as stated above, the state hasn't opened our waters yet.
