April Showers bring New Boats

Spring has sprung here at COA; the water temperature is up to 65 and the weather has been great. We have lots of awesome stuff happening, Capt Joe just put a brand new 18 passenger Carolina Skiff in the water and she is a beaut. Please note Joe's best "high-school yearbook" pose on the new boat, "Sampson II."

We are expecting a new fleet of kayaks and paddleboards and lots of new gear any day. We also have Full Moon Kayak Tours schedule for April 22nd and May 21st, which are always a great way to see the estuary in a whole new light.

We are planning trash pick-up dates for the coming months, we invite you to join us for a day on the water to keep our estuaries squeaky clean. Don't miss 4th of July at COA, watch the Folly Beach and Downtown fireworks from the seat of a kayak off  Bowens Island. We also have our own fireworks display for the 4th and we will keep the celebrations going on the 15th and 29th of July.

Gearing Up for our Favorite Season

Fall in Charleston is wonderful.

Throughout September, the air temperature begins to drop to a perfect 80 degrees during the day, while the water temperature is still warm enough for swimming. The dolphins are very active bulking up on fish so they can survive the winter, which makes our Dolphin and Morris Island Tours more exciting than ever. The sun's UV rays are not as harsh on the skin for kayaking or paddle boarding, and paddling near dolphins is a highlight of anyone's trip on the marsh. The crowds also become less and less as kids start back up in school and summer vacations come to an end.

The fall brings smaller size tours, beautiful weather, changing colors in the grass and tree lines, playful dolphins, and various migrating birds. Being on the water anytime of day is exciting as you no longer need to avoid the midday heat or sunburn. Even the boat traffic simmers down, especially during the week days. Enjoy being out on the water in quiet stillness while a guide talks about feeding birds or how oysters are harvested.

Charleston Outdoor Adventures is open daily (including Sundays) year round. It's never to early to start planning your next adventure!

Welcome to Summer 2015!
COA is rockin' and rollin' this summer. The water is beautiful, the dolphins are jumping, and we've already had several loggerhead sightings!
There are added options this summer to bring your family out on the water, COA is now offering Kayak and SUP tours four time a day! Our rental fleet has also grown in numbers, so we would love to get your family out for an adventure any day of the week.

If you have been on a boat charter with Captain Joe, then you have probably met the notorious dolphin named Machete. This past week, the captain observed Machete tossing a cannonball jellyfish up in the air! Machete continues to surprise us with his excellent fishing skills. Dolphins truly are a smart and unique mammal.
