My husband and I took Tideline Tours' Sunset Cruise and had such a great time. The weather was perfect (though if you're speeding along in the boat, you may get chilly) and the sunset was beautiful. We saw a good number of dolphins, and stopped several times to watch them swim. Captain Phil gave us tons of information - history,... More

The boat tour was a fun and very educational!! Our group included six adults and six children. Captain Phil is so engaging, friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the local ecosystem and "fun facts". The kids loved the spartina alterniflora lesson and the stop on Morris Island. Bonus - we saw three dolphins!! Highly recommend this tour.

This was not our first time at Folly, or our first boat ride while there. But it definitely was the best. Captain Phil was outstanding! His knowledge of the area, the history, the flora and fauna, (my kids still talk about the dance he taught them!) were excellent. A very enjoyable boat ride and educational tour, without feeling like an... More

What a great tour! We visited Folly Beach and booked this tour for something to do with our six year old daughter and three year old son. We saw dolphins, birds, oysters beds, jelly fish, shrimp boats, fishing boats, half sunken ships and much more. Great for the kids and great for adults. We made a stop at Morris Island... More

Lovely ride on a comfortable skiff, enjoying the nature, weather, and scenery. Captain Phil offered interesting history about the area and nature information. Great way to spend a morning.

We loved Captain Phil! We were the only ones on the boat (4 of us) and he made things fun and was very informative about the ecosystem. We saw several dolphins and the sun setting. We stopped at an island to view Morris lighthouse to look for shells. We also enjoyed Captain Phil's rap on the way back. :)

We took a December tour of Charleston's intercoastal waterway with Captin Phil and had a wonderful time! Phil is an excellent tour guide and captin. In addition to finding a ton of dolphins for us to see, Phil was an incredibly knowledgeable and entertaining naturalist - we got to see and learn about biodiversity in the Charleston area waterways though...

We had a great time on this tour.Our captain was so informative and friendly. We were the only ones on Morris Island and found about 50 Whelk shells! Also found whole sand dollars, angel wings, scallop shells and lots more. My girls had so much fun.
