Spend time with and learn about Dolphins, crab trap pulled, and time spent on Capers Beach on our Sunset Dolphin Cruise!

Join our naturalist on a search and discovery mission on this sunset 2.5-hour dolphin cruise to encounter the fascinating bottlenose dolphin and loggerhead sea turtle off of Capers Island, just north of Charleston. Bottlenose dolphins are common residents of our salt marshes and inlets behind the barrier islands and we take you on an excursion to view our resident pods. Sunset is the perfect time to be on the water and viewing the spectacular marine life of our region while enjoying the cooler temperatures of evening.

As you observe the dolphins feeding, playing, or simply cruising around in their native environment, you learn all about their social behavior, feeding habits, and much more. You also learn about the history of the threatened loggerhead sea turtle, which we often catch sight of during the summer months. You have about one hour to get off the boat and explore Capers Island’s famous “bone-yard beach”.

Trips are Sunday through Friday from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. during the summer months. In the off season, trips are Sunday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings, with times scheduled to coincide with the sunset.

Your welcome to bring a small cooler of whatever you would like to eat or drink.
