Best private boat tour ever!

Just stayed in Charleston and had the greatest boat adventure! Our concierge booked us with Absolute Reel Screamer Charters at Folly Beach, 20 minutes from downtown. Our captain was Gresh Meggett, a seventh generation native whose knowledge of the waterways and history was incredible! He identified all types of birds, explained how the estuaries worked and showed us how to catch shrimp as well. We then pulled up to an oyster bed (there were tons of them) and showed us how to harvest them. He even shucked us a few right on the boat and they were so good! Then we found the dolphins. They were so close to the boat we could have touched them! Capt Gresh then dropped us off on Morris Island where we walked the beach as he told us some incredible Civil War history. We picked up some beautiful shells and he even found a piece of Indian pottery! For me and my family this was the highlight of our whole stay and it was everything the concierge said it would be. It's 2 hours long and perfect for the whole family. Don't miss this one!
