  • 2 hours

Climb aboard the Palmetto, our 45ft catamaran, versatile enough to venture down to Morris Island and land on the beach. With a capacity of only 49 passengers, everyone will experience a personalized atmosphere.

Spend a refreshing afternoon in the salty breeze, as you:

  • Catch a glimpse of frolicking dolphins as they roam the creeks and the harbor
  • Troll the ocean floor, pull crab pots, and add to our touch tank on board
  • Sneak close up views of wading and shore birds, such as Great Blue Herons, Snowy Egrets, Eastern Brown Pelicans, and Least Terns
  • You may also have the opportunity to take a stroll down the beaches of Morris island, an uninhabited barrier island, where you can pick up shells along the way!

Learn about Charleston's abundant marine life and see fish and crab up close in the touch tank on board the boat!
