Awesome dolphin sightings

Enjoyed the ride out to Morris island. Learned a lot about the eco system in the estuaries. Spent an hour at the island which could have been shorter as not much to do but hunt for shells. The highlight of our trip was the multiple sightings of the dolphins that live in the estuaries. Luke was our guide and was very personable.

Josh was a great driver and we felt safe with the limited number of participants, outdoor activity, and mask wearing. The kids loved seeing the dolphins swim along the boat and collecting conch shells on Morris Island. The entire trip was beautiful and peaceful and informative, but wear a jacket. It's chilly out there!
