We can't wait to do it... More

I live in the area and my coworkers and I decided to charter a boat on our day off. What a great idea! Walker made the difference and catered to our group as our captain. We had such a great time we bought an additional hour. Highly recommend as a good way to spend a hot day in charleston!

I went on a day trip with my family and it was great. Our guide walker was exceptional, friendly, and very experienced. He even gave us a great breakfast recommendation at the salt works deli! I would highly recommend the safari to any families in isle of palms.
