Recommended by National Geographic, COA includes a private launch site with pristine calm waters, light boat traffic, dolphins & abundant birds. Come explore with us and enjoy abundant wildlife via a guided kayak tour, rental, or boat charter.

Join one of our captains & explore the marshland and tidal creeks behind Folly Beach by motor boat. As you cruise through a maze of waterways, you will be able to see a plethora of wildlife such as wading birds, oyster beds, wild dolphins, and turtles.
