Salt Marsh Adventure Cruise

Why We Love This

  • Enjoy beachcombing and Ghost crabs on Morris Island
  • See and hear wild Atlantic bottlenose dolphins
  • A scientist-led tour along the coast

Tideline Tours

A Tideline Tour is the perfect way to learn about the eco life that surrounds Folly Beach. Led by a college professor, enjoy a leisure cruise through various salt marshes and explore an isolated island filled with life.

What You'll Do

Captain Anton takes you on an adventure that stops at various points to not only take in the scenery but also hear what is going on beneath the boat. On the bay you may see a variety of aviary life including brown pelicans, laughing gulls and Royal Terns. Below the surface, the captainn uses sonar equipment to bring the ocean to life with bottlenose dolphins chatting with each other. Afterwards, head towards Morris Island and explore the beach, while looking for ghost crabs and snap pictures of the lighthouse. On your way back, your captain will tell stories of the half-sunk boat and may check one of his blue crab traps.

"So Much to See"

July 6, 2015 - 

Great way to start the day! My family and I decided to spend the day on Folly and came across this tour. Captain Anton is a super smart guy and my little sister loved spotting all the dolphins.
