Things to do on the water while visiting Isle of Palms, South Carolina

Things to do on the water while visiting Isle of Palms, South Carolina
Reserve a sunset sail aboard the Schooner Pride during your visit.
The city of Isle of Palms in South Carolina is essentially a sand dune on the Atlantic Ocean, and it’s a place where couples, friends & families will find plenty of opportunities to get out and explore the Lowcountry wildlife and ecosystem.

Eco tours on pontoons and kayaks, fishing charters and sailing adventures are just some of the ways people around here like to spend time with Mother Nature. 

Barrier Island Eco Tours 

Not too far down the road from 48 Ocean Point is a group called Barrier Island Eco Tours. They offer excursions to Caper’s Island, one of the last uninhabited barrier islands, as well as dolphin and crabbing excursions. For the younger members of your family, they offer a marine biology class on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Cruises & Fishing Charters

The waters around Isle of Palms are filled with bass, sea trout, redfish, snapper, grouper, tuna and mahi-mahi and more. Charleston Angler has a store in the nearby Mt. Pleasant and offers boat rentals while Adventure Outdoors located in Isle of Palms offers boat rides and fishing charters.

Sailing Cruises & Boat Rentals

Charleston has a rich maritime history. And most sailing excursions are located in the Charleston Harbor, which is only about a 30-minute drive from our house at Ocean Point. OnDeck Sailing, for example, offers lessons as well as charters starting.

The Schooner Pride is an 84-foot three-masted tall ship modeled after an 18th century coastal trading schooner. It’s ideal for private charters and events like weddings and corporate retreats, but they also offer two-hour public sails.

For more ideas on how to spend your days the next time you stay near Wild Dunes and Isle of Palms (perhaps the next time you visit us at 48 Ocean Point), take a look at the Charleston Visitor’s Bureau website. They list of all kinds of things you can see & do during your visit: tours, shopping, beaches, golf, recreation, cultural, spas, sporting events and nightlight.
