We had a fantastic time while on JB's kayak tour. He was very personable, knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. Not only did we see dolphin, we also came across 2 sharks (I think he said they were about 5feet long) and a variety of birds. even if you've never kayaked before, it's not difficult and you won't wake up sore the next morning. Don't hesitate.....book your tour! I can't wait for our next trip to Charleston so we can go on this tour again!
