Tideline Tours, Folly Beach

#3 of 6 in Wildlife in Folly Beach
Dolphin / Whale Watching · Eco Tour
An off-the-beaten-path boating adventure into the salt marsh surrounds one in an endless sea of spartina grass. Oyster-lined tidal creeks, sheltered behind barrier islands, provide home for several fish, bird, and mammal species. Bottlenose dolphins explode onto the mud bank chasing a school of mullet. Bright white shrimp boats, resting against gray, splintered pilings at the fish house, provide a perch for brown pelicans. Distinct sulfur and saltwater smells permeate the nose. To locals, this smells like home. The salt marsh defines Folly Beach.

  • Captain Mike is exactly the kind of tour guide you want! Very knowledgeable, not the type who just recites facts - he was interesting, funny, informative, laid back - and obviously local. Highly highly highly recommend! Excellent value!
  • I'd be lying if I didn't express my disappointment. We saw maybe four dolphin fins the whole trip - I understand they are not trained circus animals and Tideline Tours can't make them appear, but it was still a let down. Our captain was knowledgeable but not a people person and was kind of abrupt when not hearing a question or having an answer, no Southern charm here. Would likely be more suitable out in the field tagging and tracking sea fauna. Anyway, 'nuff said but for what we paid I was hoping for more.
