Who We Are
Coastal Expeditions is a small, family-owned business that was created in 1992.
Owner Chris Crolley worked his way up from First Mate on the Bulls Island Ferry 19 years ago and can still be found leading tours or captaining the ferry (although less often than he'd like!). During the summers you'll find his 16-year-old son working as a junior counselor at camp.
Over the years, Coastal Expeditions has grown into a group of dedicated naturalists using kayaks and boats to get people into beautiful places. We love what we do and it is our mission to share the blackwater, rivers and salt marshes with you.
As Charleston's original outfitter, we have set the standard for environmental education and stewardship in this region of the country. Our guides have an enviable collective resume that includes guiding for Linblad's National Geographic Explorer, educating students in the British Virgin Islands, advanced degrees in marine biology and more. Our guides are ACA certified (Level 2 and 3 Instructors) and are trained in Wilderness First Aid, CPR and Life Guarding.
