Robert Frost could have used a local guide when he decided to take the road less traveled, as he discovered only too late that it was a gully carved to redirect flowing lava. Stay on the right path with this Groupon.

Captain Jesse Nelson pilots a 23-foot Power Bay boat down the rivers and marshes of the Lowcountry for eco-tours. Guests can bring drinks to share as they encounter waterbirds, fish, and scenic views.

Fish Crazed Charleston

Jesse Nelson looks forward to summer weather—it means the sharks are coming to town. The Coast Guard–certified captain relishes the charters he takes with clients to hook and wrestle the oceanic predators that flock to the coast as the climate warms. Having navigated the Lowcountry's angling spots for his entire life, Jesse knows how to hunt down the toothy specimens as well as most other native fish. He pursues barracuda and king mackerel on nearshore reefs, and steers through salt marshes to land flounder, sheepshead, and red drum, always abiding by catch-and-release rules.

Guests needn't be fishers to board his 23-foot Polar Bay boat, however. Jesse also plans recreational river retreats that include ecological tours, shelling expeditions, and dolphin-watching voyages. He customizes each trip based on the crew's desired sights, whether they hope to snap wildlife photos or simply make fun of waterbirds for walking so goofily.
