We had a fun night with Captain Randy touring us around. He was a great guide and has a lot of Love for Folly Beach. Our 3 teenage daughters loved getting so close to the dolphins as they scoured for the evening shrimp. And, we loved putting fresh footprints on the island near the lighthouse. What a cool experience!

We have been on tours w/ Caption Randy 3 times and enjoyed each trip. Each trip was different and he himself is VERY entertaining. He is VERY knowledgeable about the area 's history and the only Caption that was actually born and raised here. IF you want a tour that is very laid back and on which you will really enjoy yourself don't hesitate booking w/ him. Thanks, Kim Sybil Missy & Gray

We’ve booked with Captain Randy on three occasions over the years. Previously with kids or family, this time for our honeymoon. Each time, he shows us different parts of Folly. He’s shown us architecture, dolphins feeding, and taken us shelling by the lighthouse. It’s always a fun and entertaining adventure. Highly recommend tours with Captain Randy!

Randy was the greatest. His knowledge of the history and items of interest surrounding Morris island was what made the trip so enjoyable and laid back. Highly recommended.
