Though swimming with dolphins is the fastest way to become acquainted with the charming mammals, it’s also the easiest way to lose lunch money to bullying schools of tuna. Witness the bustling marine ecosystem from the comfort of a bully-proof boat with today’s Groupon to Botany Bay Ecotours in Edisto Beach. Choose between the following options:

  • For $39, you get a two-hour dolphin eco tour for two (an $80 value).
  • For $75, you get a two-hour dolphin eco tour for four (a $160 value).<p>

Helmed by a local biologist, Botany Bay Ecotours leverages scientific expertise while exposing the ACE Basin’s natural beauty through two-hour excursions in kayaks or boats. Scheduled by the tide, the dolphin eco tour sets off in pursuit of clear, memorable glimpses of the long-nosed creatures. Guests looking for an aquatic workout can opt to paddle a kayak past swaying grasses and talking alligators while peeling eyes for the sonar-fluent swimmers. To enjoy a more hands-off expedition, tour participants can climb aboard a zipping motorboat and lounge on its open deck as the vessel glides past dolphins and bald eagles. Guides augment the sightseeing experience with rich explanations of the history and biology of the frolicking mammalian pods, decoding their jubilant splashes and squeaking for directions.

Botany Bay Ecotours

Helmed by local biologist and US Coast Guard–certified captain Meg Hoyle, Botany Bay Ecotours leverages scientific expertise while exposing Edisto Island's natural beauty through leisurely boat tours and educational kayak excursions. Dolphin eco tours set off in pursuit of clear, memorable glimpses of the bottle-nosed creatures, while sunset tours showcase the exquisite colors of the sun setting over the beach and birds heading to their marshland roosts. Guests looking for a similar experience on dry land can observe turtles on the beach or head off on a private island safari. Guides augment the sightseeing experiences with rich explanations of the history and biology of local wildlife, as well as the region's low-country and Gullah culture.

It was a great day to be out on the water -- saw mating horseshoe crabs and numerous birds. The dolphins were hiding but it was still a very positive experience.
