Kiawah River Safari Cruise Book Now

This adventure is offered in the Fall & Winter when the tide is ideal. Our Summer Series is the Bird Key Baby Pelican Cruise

Gather family and friends on a relaxing wildlife-spotting tour down the Kiawah River.   This safari-style cruise begins at the Farmhouse at Kiawah River, an island village in the Charleston countryside on Johns Island.  This beautiful setting, shaded by grand live oaks, provides the perfect setting to begin the tour.

Resident dolphins are likely to make an appearance, too, as they slowly work their way through the estuary to hunt. With a dedicated naturalist on board, you’re sure to learn something you didn’t know and see something you may not have noticed- like a deer feeding along the edge of the river or marsh sparrows hidden in the grass.

Bring your binoculars for this wildlife boat tour!

This excursion is suited for all ages and abilities and our custom-built vessel is fully covered for added comfort.

*This tour is currently offered for private groups.
