We offer naturalist guided boat excursions to Capers Island State Heritage Preserve, one of the last undeveloped barrier islands. Our fleet consists of twin sister 49 passenger pontoon boats the Delphinus and the Caretta and our 19 passenger pontoon, the Sayana. All pontoon boats are covered and have a restroom, beaching ramp, and fold down lexan panels in case of cool weather. Our fleet also includes the Marsh Mama, a 27 foot, 17 passenger Carolina Skiff; and the Cut Mullet, a 23 foot, 6 passenger bay style boat. Both are set up for inshore fishing. All of our boats are available for private, customized charters as well.

Take a look at the boats we have available.
