Dolphin Boat EcoTours: These trips focus on the ever-popular bottlenose dolphins, but there's so much more! Cruise with the dolphins and learn about their amazing life history. Keep in mind that dolphins are wild animals and we can't guarantee their presence. However, we feel a trip on the water in the ACE Basin is always a worthy way to spend time whether the dolphins join us or not. Remember, this is more than just a dolphin tour. You will enjoy seeing a variety of bird species, learn about the salt marsh ecosystem and local cultural history. Your guide can tell you about the sea turtles that nest on the beach during the summer as well. Wednesday trips include a Gullah Tour with local resident Sarah Burnell. 75 minutes. SPECIAL of $46 per adult, $24 per child ages 4-12! If you have a group of 6 or more, ask about our group rates.
