Charleston's Oldest Outfitter

Coastal Expeditions has led boat tours in Charleston since 1994 and is contracted by US Fish & Wildlife Service, South Carolina State Parks, US Forest Service, REI, Road Scholar, and local environmental non-profits for guide service.

We custom-built our boats, including our 49-passenger ferry, to be stable and comfortable in the Charleston Harbor and out to Bulls Island.

Captains and mates are naturalists with passions for story-telling, wildlife and Charleston history.
