Dolphin tours in Charleston, SC are the perfect way to experience beautiful sea views and a multitude of land and sea wildlife all at one time. The Lowcountry backwaters are home to and famous for the bottlenose dolphins. Dolphins are social creatures and will often swim near the boat, making them easy to spot. They’re also quick swimmers and have been known to keep a pace of up to 34 miles per hour! These highly-intelligent creatures thrive in the salt marsh and inlets behind the barrier islands.
This sailing experience in Charleston, SC is about much more than dolphins. You might also see manatees swimming alongside the boat. These warm-water creatures are friendly and have been described as mermaids by ancient mariners. Also along the Lowcountry waters you can see pelicans perched on boats, waiting for fish to appear at the water’s surface before scooping them up.
We highly recommend that you bring binoculars and a camera to capture the experience. Other birds that call the waterway home such as the Great Horned Owl, the Belted Kingfisher, and the Great Blue Heron make their nests in the trees and can be spotted in the sky or along the water’s edge.
