Explore the wildlife and views of Folly Beach on a private sail for just your group! See dolphins, pelicans, herons, osprey, egrets, and more.
Duration: 2 Hours or 3 Hours, Ages: All Ages, Capacity: 6 People
The sun sets over the marsh in brilliant colors, and the best way to see it is from the peaceful surroundings of the river and salt marsh behind Folly. We slip past the backside of Folly Beach and into the open Stono River, or we head up one of the wide creeks that wind their way through the marshes past shrimp boats.
The sea breeze softens a little at sunset, really making this a quiet getaway. You’ll definitely want your camera along for this one. And of course, we have a cooler for any beverages you may want to bring.
The catamaran is a Stiletto 27, built for speed but also very stable. Our power boat is a 20 ft center console with room for comfortable seating.
Sunscreen, bottled water or beverage of your choice. Come in your swim suit, and if the group wants to, we can stop for a swim. The boat has a swim ladder for easy boarding from the water.
Based on wind direction, we can sail down the Folly River past the beach on your left, and out into the larger Stono River near the ocean inlet. We can also sail up nearby Folly Creek and sail past wildlife and shrimp boats. Either way, there is plenty to see and explore!
The tours narrated as much or as little as you like. The captain is a professional maritime guide with a wealth of knowledge about low country history and culture. He will gladly tell you stories about colonial times, the Civil War, or piracy's great age.
Dolphin, pelicans and other sea birds live here year round, and the chances of seeing dolphin are very good.
There is a cooler on deck for you to bring drinks. Feel free to bring snacks too.
Very. We may glide along at a pretty good clip, but since the catamaran is twin-hulled, it remains very stable and does not heel (or lean over) as single-hulled sailboats do.
Small to medium size dogs welcome
Sure! If you had fun, then gratuity is appreciated!
