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. Our most popular experience- the Morris Island Lighthouse Eco Tour- was among Trip Advisor’s nationally recognized outdoor activities of 2018.
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. With COA you can also enjoy a naturalist guided kayak or SUP tour through the beautiful Folly Creek. Soak in the sights while an experienced local guide leads you through the peaceful tidal creeks, pointing out wildlife and providing interesting information about local ecosystems. COA offers several departure times throughout the day, including daily sunset options for charter boat and kayak tours.
