Botany Bay Ecotours' knowledgeable founder Meg Hoyle and her carefully assembled crew of tour guides lead educational excursions through the ACE Basin's picturesque coastal ecosystem. From the comfy confines of a motorboat, passengers can observe, wave at, and trade baseball cards with bottlenose dolphins frolicking through the water, satisfied that a portion of Botany Bay Ecotours' proceeds go toward supporting environmentally-conscious non-profit organizations in the area. Due to dolphins' wild nature and busy schedules breaking up starfish fights, guides cannot promise they will emerge from the depths, but every trek is guaranteed to come with detailed information about surrounding wildlife and local history. Tours are scheduled with the tides, so call ahead to procure departure times and to make a reservation.

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.
