Captain Richard took us out on a sunset cruise. He was knowledgeable, safe and personable. We were interested in learning all he had to share about the history of the area and about the water ways as well. We saw lots of dolphins and enjoyed walking around Morris Island and taking pictures on the shore in front of the lighthouse.... More

Our guide, Kate, was great. She was patient with us as it was our first kayaking trip. She was also knowledgeable, pointing out different birds, crabs, etc. We even saw dolphins up close on the trip. The group was small, just our family of 4, so it was very personable. I would definitely do it again and would highly recommend.

My girlfriend and I booked a dolphin watching boat cruise in early May with Flipper Finders. The boat was very nice and the captain was very knowledgeable and personable. He gave information not only about the wildlife but also about South Carolina history. We saw probably over 20 dolphins, with some of them within 50 feet of the boat. I... More

Steve took us out on the Folly River to Morris Island for dolphin watching and shelling. Wonderful morning. Lots of dolphins sited and great shelling. One of our party left with 6 sand dollars! Morris island and lighthouse only accessible by boat, and well worth the trip. Thanks, Steve. We had a great time!!

The sunset dolphin cruise was one of the highlights of our trip. We were fortunate enough to have a one on one trip due to cancellations, which was great luck. Captain Richard was very friendly, laid back and knowledgeable. We also had co-captains - Steve and Lizzie (fur-captain) who both added to the whole vibe. We enjoyed having Lizzie on... More

We had a great tour with Steve. The small boat and group (just the 3 of us) made it a very personalized experience.

If you are looking for a boat for just a few people, this is it! It's BYOB so you can bring a cooler of beer and there aren't any strangers with you. We had a great captain and the best time. I highly recommend them. Plus, it wasn't expensive at all and we saw a ton of dolphins!
