Explore your own private island
Our tour will make your time on Edisto unforgettable as you explore the creeks, rivers and marshes. The ACE Basin is the largest undeveloped estuary on the East Coast defined by the Ashepoo, Combahee and Edisto Rivers.
We get you on the water with activities ranging from boat tours actively exploring the natural and cultural history of the area to sunset cruises with your favorite beverage.

Retreat to one of the protected islands in the ACE Basin and explore the undeveloped beach. Learn to identify the mollusks on the beach and see the mass nesting site of thousands of horseshoe crab. Pack a picnic or just enjoy some time plugged into the rhythm of the island.
Boat Ecotours depart from Edisto Marina (3702 Dock Site Rd), DOCK SLIP D 2. The Marina can be hard to spot, so look for signs for Pressley's Restaurant or Bay Creek Park. Free parking is available at Bay Creek Park or across from Bay Creek Villas. Our dock slip is at the end of a 150 yard boardwalk, so give yourself time to enjoy the walkway over the salt marsh. Please arrive 10 minutes before departure.
Coastal weather is variable and TV or phone weather forecasts are not accurate here. We will cancel due to weather at the time of the tour if needed. We run light rain or shine, so bring a waterproof layer and be prepared with an extra layer for cool breezes and a hat and water for hot days.
There is a 12" step down into the boat that guests need to be physically able to make.
