WE'LL TAKE YOU
everywhere you want to be.
Coastal Expeditions is Charleston's original outfitter, guiding people on the inland waterways since 1992.
Our ecotour charters are led by skilled naturalist captains for specialized adventures that focus on birding, history, photography and the natural beauty of Charleston and the surrounding estuaries, bays, creeks and rivers. If you've ever been on the Bulls Island Ferry, you know that our captains are professional, knowledgeable and fun-- a great combination, by the way!
Schedule a private charter on one of our four Coast Guard-certified vessels into Cape Romain NWR, the ACE Basin, Francis Marion National Forest, Waccamaw NWR and beyond. Having navigated the waterways that spread like capillaries through the Carolina Lowcountry for decades, we're the local guide service for organizations like REI Adventures, Coastal Conservation League, South Carolina Nature Conservancy, Lowcountry Open Land Trust and more.
Our naturalist guides will create a day on the water that is as unforgettable as the scent of honeysuckle. So grab your binoculars and camera, pack a lunch and get on the water.
Our mission is to share the intricacies of the local ecosystem to enrich, educate and develop advocates for the environment
