Experience Lowcountry Wildlife

Charleston’s mix of saltwater and brackish water habitats makes for an oasis for dolphins and other marine life. Dolphins can be seen in quiet tidal creeks, open inlets, and even a few miles upstream in slow, meandering rivers. The area’s relatively warm waters and plentiful food supply also mean dolphins can be found nearly year-round.

While we can’t guarantee that you’ll see dolphins on your trip, we can take you to spots where we see them most often. Whether you spot a dolphin not, rest assured that there’s plenty of natural beauty to take in. On your search for dolphins, you’ll pass untouched marshes and restful estuaries. Birds, fish, historic sites and incredible views are all found in abundance in the South Carolina Lowcountry.
