Join us on our signature dolphin tour for an experience you’re not likely to forget.
Catch the sunset as we explore the creeks and marshes behind Folly beach while we search for the wild Atlantic bottlenose dolphins that live here year-round. Your experienced captain shares their knowledge about this beautiful ecosystem, the local history, and our famous dolphins while always operating the vessel in a way that is safe and respectful of the resident wildlife.
During the tour, be on the lookout for strand feeding, a dolphin hunting technique that is unique to this part of the world. Strand feeding is usually seen July – September. You get to explore these backwaters and navigate to historic Morris Island, where you can hunt for fossils, sea shells, and sand dollars.
The tour lasts around two hours and can accommodate up to 18 people. BYOB!
We do have a smaller boat for groups up to 6 people. Check out our specialty tours page!
DROP OFF/5 Min. PARKING: There is NO long term parking in front of the shop located at 83 Center Street. When driving onto Folly our building will be on the right-hand side of the road just past the Public Boat Ramp. Please be prepared to drop off and pick up your guest in front of the building within the gravel lot *** before the Folly's Best Rentals Ford Bronco, however, do not park in front of the Folly's Best Rentals. If at all possible walk, ride a bike, or rideshare.
2 HR PARKING: If you must park a car for the duration of your activity, please park at the public boat landing. When coming onto Folly Beach, the entrance to the public boat landing will be your immediate right-hand turn after the final folly river bridge. If available, it’s best to park in the spaces immediately to your left after turning into the boat ramp. Please do not park in the trailer spaces (the long ones) at the public boat launch as they give tickets to non trailered vehicles.
Sometimes the landing is full, so parking is free on Folly, but there are some rules you must know. All four tires must be off the street and going with the flow of traffic. You can park anywhere, unless there is a sign specifically stating that you cannot.
