Morris Island is unspoiled, undeveloped and undeniably the jewel of Charleston Harbor. It is approximately 4 miles of barrier island paradise, and you can't get there except by boat, helicopter, hot air ballon, whatever. But thats the idea! Solitude!
But thats only part of the charm. Since Morris Island is undeveloped, there's only a fraction of the people visiting there than any of the other public beaches nearby, making it the finest shell hunting beach in Charleston. Whether it's sand dollars and conch shells, or the thrill of finding that perfect shark's tooth, you'll find more goodies on Morris Island than anywhere else.
You''ll probably see dolphins, too.
Join us on this 2.5 hour excursion. You never know, you might even find civil war relics, old bullets or even a pirates treasure- Arghhhh, which of course you'll have to share with us (think of it as our commision), or else it's Davey Jones' locker with you, matey. (Didn't Davey Jones sing for "The Monkees"? Why does he have a locker? Why are pirates constantly threatening each other with this?)
Not only is the scenery wonderful, but you'll see you share of birds, critters on the shore and everyone's favorite ocean creatures, the Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphin.
Tickets are non-refundable unless the event is cancelled by Adventure Harbor Tours. No shows and late arrivals will not be rescheduled but you may reschedule a tour up to a day prior to departure.
While Morris Island is spectacular, it's not without its hazards . Stay out of the dunes, both for the sake of minimizing erosion and the effect on the wildlife, but more importantly for your feet! The interior of Morris Island is filled with brambles, sticker bushes, catcus and the occasional varmint. Also, there are no lifeguards anywhere out on the island, so swimming should be done elsewhere. As a matter of fact, the currents can be quite strong around Morris Island, so care is urged in water any deeper than your knees.
Yes! C'mon out with the crew from Adventure Harbor Tours on our BYOB Sunset Cocktail cruise and treat yourself to a 90 minute sightseeing journey around Charleston Harbor! We don't currently have a beer and wine license, so stop on in to California Dreaming to fuel up (please note: no to go cups) or bring your own and pack a picnic as we sail by Charleston's Mega Yachts, the lovely historic district, The USS Yorktown and under the big bridge while your Captain narrates the scenery. While you're out there, your crew will be doing their best to spot Charleston Harbor's coolest inhabitants, the Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins. Towards the end of the trip, we'll maneuver into the Ashley River to watch the sun go down, and create some lasting memories. Tours start approximately 90 minute before sundown, so check the schedule to see when they go. Come see us!
You'll find us at Ripley Light Marina, 56 Ashley Point Drive, Charleston SC 29407, in Slip E-15.

We’re so lucky to live in a place like Charleston. You’re lucky you get to come and visit. Look at Charleston Harbor from the shore and you too will appreciate all this glorious water that nature has bestowed upon us. This 2 hour trip will get you a little more in tune with Nature’s happenings out in the estuary. And by the end of this trip, you too will know a little bit more about how things work under the surface.
For starters, we’ll head on up into the salt marsh of the Ashley River, home to hundreds of creatures, including fish, shrimp, crabs, bird life and more. Your crew will toss out a cast net and haul up a crab trap to see what denizens of the deep we’ve caught to show off for you. But fear not, we won’t be keeping any of these guys for the stew pot. In fact, everything we catch goes right back in to the water to live for another day. Why? CONSERVATION! We practice what we preach!
Learn about how the marsh acts like a filter to keep our waterways clean and serves as the coast’s nursery. Dolphins, natures happiest river residents, are frequently seen on this trip. Finally, there’s a historic surprise at the end of our river tour.
Hats, sunscreen and water are recommended for this trip. At this time, we do not sell any of these items. Feel free to bring any snacks, drinks; whatever you need to keep your crew happy, healthy and hydrated.
