Charter a boat and one of our naturalist guides from the Isle of Palms Marina for an exploration of our salt marshes and barrier islands. The charter rate is an hourly fee and includes just about anything you would like to do on the water. Spend some time fishing in the calm waters of the salt marsh, pull some crab traps, learn to throw the cast net, investigate oyster beds, spend time with dolphins, stop on a sand bar to catch some blue crabs, swim a little, and stop on Capers for some shelling and island exploration. You may even choose to end the trip with a Lowcountry Boil or hamburgers and hot dogs grilled on the beach. We always bring an ice cold watermelon for extra refreshment!

Your kids will come home with a wealth of knowledge about marine ecosystems and learn fun skills such as fishing, crabbing and cast netting. You are welcome to bring your own food and coolers.The description above is just an example of the many options available for this customized excursion. Choose one or all of these activities or leave it in the hands of your guide to ensure you have an amazing time! Average charter length depending on what activities you choose is 3-5 hours. The beachside cookout is an additional cost per person.
