  • Barrier Island EcoTours
    Repeating a tradition that went back to their high-school days, three college friends sat on a Capers Island beach, roasting oysters over a cedar fire. They looked out at all the undeveloped land of the barrier islands and the low country, feeling like the sole witnesses to the beauty of pristine nature—and recognized that was a problem. Understanding that both tourists and locals were overlooking these untouched salt marshes and tidal pools, they decided to launch Barrier Island Eco Tours to help instill a greater respect and appreciation in the greater population. After receiving permission from the Department of Natural Resources, and with just a six-passenger boat, they began taking guests out on eco tours, fishing trips, and beach cookouts. Today, Barrier Island’s naturalists have a fleet of boats for their six eco-friendly adventures such as sunset cruises to see bottlenose dolphins, a wildlife tours of Capers Island, and guided fishing trips for trophies such as redfish, shark, and stealth submarines. They also organize group and special events, from weddings to school fieldtrips.

  • Captains Source
    To assure fantastic seafaring on Charleston's waterways, Captains Source assembled a team of top-notch captains, each as unique and diverse as the tours they charter. Every captain boasts a U.S. Coast Guard 6-Pack license and is certified by USOBE or Clemson for the specific excursions they lead, assuring expertise piloting the ship and in the field of harbor history, fishing, or wildlife. Captains who are great with kids and families ferry them out onto the bay and estuaries for dolphin sightings and insight into the region's marine life, and harbor history tours reveal Charleston's close connections to the American Revolution and Civil War. Like the captains, the aquatic company's boats are also suited specifically for the tour, including sailboats, yachts, and offshore fishing boats. Wanting to make the glistening waterways available to the public for all occasions, they accommodate charters for business meetings, birthdays, reunions, and searches for runaway sea legs.

  • Tidal Wave Water Sports
    Tidal Wave Water Sports splashes and surges riders against the salty waves, setting them in the slippery saddle of their own bouncy banana-shaped vessel. Combining safety, scenery, and sport, U.S. Coast Guard captains and certified guides conduct each banana-boat ride, towing each buoyant fruit behind a larger boat, where they can easily scan the briny depths for signs of troublesome sea monkeys. Small groups of up to six people typically straddle these inflatable boats, and with today?s deal, you and a friend will get to take the reins alongside other like-minded fruit fans (a minimum of three riders is required per trip), cruising around the surf for a silly, raucous half-hour.

  • Isle of Palms Marina
    Along the South Carolina coast near the Isle of Palms, a salt-marsh estuary shelters some 277 species of birds. Brown pelicans, terns, gulls, and even bald eagles and endangered wood storks flutter from limbs of the coast’s maritime forests. One of the best ways to spy on these rich thickets of wildlife and determine if they talk about you behind your back is aboard one of Lowcountry Boat Rentals' vessels. The fleet’s 16- to 24-foot boats accommodate up to 10 and may be rented for hourly, half-day, or full-day excursions to grant enough time to soak up the sun’s rays and watch the breeze muss the surface of the water. Alternatively, renters can steer their boats from the coastal marsh and toward the sandy white beaches that sprawl for 6 miles along the Isle of Palms, an Atlantic-barrier island. No matter the route, excursions douse all onboard with the ocean’s salty spray and long views.
