Beachcombing Vanishing Island Tour
Meet Savannah's dolphin population and visit a vanishing island! Our Beachcombing Cruise combines a tour of the Savannah Riverfront, a dolphin nature cruise, and time on a remote sandbar, shell bank, or beach. It doesn't get any better than this! First, we take a leisurely cruise as we search for dolphin in their natural habitat. Once we make it to a sandbar or beach, we search for shells, sand dollars, crabs, starfish, and the occasional shark's tooth. Sandbars are only available to visit at low tide, so this trip leaves at different times each day depending on the tide. Trips are led by naturalist captain guides who can tell you about the local flora and fauna. 3 hours; $75.00 per adult / $60 for kids 12 and under
Take a short boat cruise through the coastal marsh to the private Page Island, locally known as “The Outback.” During your cruise, your naturalist guide will point out local wildlife, including wading birds, alligators, and bottlenose dolphins. Before enjoying a picnic lunch on the island, join a guided kayak tour through pristine waters, explore the island’s miles of nature trails, or simply relax in a hammock by the private dock. 4.5 hours; $105.00 per person
Daufuskie's History and Artisans Excursion
Because of the island’s Gullah and Civil War history, Daufuskie is home to a number of significant historic sites, including the restored 1880s First-Union African Baptist Church and the Mary Field Elementary School, which inspired the book “The Water is Wide.” As your group cruises to Daufuskie, your naturalist captain will provide history of the coastal area and point out local wildlife.
