We had a wonderful time in Georgetown, SC with Cap'nRod's Tours. With threats of storms, he kept us completely informed. We had a great time and a beautiful rainbow while on our island excursion and also the opportunity to collect plenty of shells and driftwood.

Great experience! The boat crew kept the trip lively and informative. A lot of Low Country history. The weather could have been better, but Captain Doug made sure everyone stayed dry and warm. He did lose his hat. Good day trip!!
