What you can expect

Tours are based around Shem Creek because of its perfect introduction to the Lowcountry. Led by licensed historical guide Captain Bryan, these walking tours will show guests the important ecological and historical nature of one of Charleston’s oldest commercially used waterways. A myriad of aquatic life can be seen on these tours, including but not limited to dolphins, crabs, birds (osprey, egrets, herons, and the brown pelican) and the rare manatee. Captain Bryan also shares his knowledge regarding the various events and usage of Shem Creek dating back to the original Seewee Native American Tribe to the current Shrimp Boat Fleet. Tours also include a behind the scenes look into several shrimp and seafood facilities/markets along the creek as a one of a kind opportunity. As an added bonus Captain Bryan will utilize a crab trap to hopefully give you an up close look at one of our native (and delicious) species, the blue crab, which are all released.
