The One Of A Kind Ferry Boat Adventure You Can Take In South Carolina
Some attractions and adventures in South Carolina are an absolute treasure, worthy of repeats, over and over. If you haven’t already experienced this one-of-a-kind day trip, then now is the time to start planning your excursion. And if you’ve already had the pleasure of taking this fun trip, then it’s one of those good times you can repeat again and again and still have a fantastic time.
Fun for the entire family, Rover Boat Tours (departing from Georgetown) offers a trifecta of fun.
Firstly, it's a shelling expedition that takes you out to an undeveloped barrier island facing the ocean when you'll be able to bring home some amazing ocean treasures.
Next, the captain of your boat will make every effort for you to see dolphins.
Afterall, everyone dreams of going home with photos like these!
And thirdly, you'll pass by the Georgetown Light that's not visible from the shore. So you'll be among the elite that get to see this historic old (but still working!) relic as you pass by.
All along the way, your informed and friendly tour guide will give you the lowdown on the history and notable points of interest as you make your way to your final destination: a deserted island on the Atlantic.
Once you arrive, grab whatever bag you've brought along to collect ocean treasures, and then hop off the ferry and let the treasure hunt begin!
No one knows WHY this little island seems to catch so MANY shells. Perhaps it's as simple as the nearby water currents, or even the way the island juts out into the ocean. But who cares, really, right?
As long as there is plenty of bounty for you to have ample souvenirs to bring home!
You'll want to stick with the dried and no longer living specimen of the star fish you discover, and leave the living behind. (It's easy to determine if one is living because it will still be moving.)
You may even find some great driftwood to add to (or start) your collection. Obviously some will be to big to get on the boat!
One thing is for sure: you won't leave disappointed if you're looking for ocean treasures! Rover Tours gets consistently high ratings from their patrons, who seem to return season after season for this adventure on the high seas.
If you're vacationing in South Carolina, then you'll want to go ahead and reserve your tickets early. The entire trip should last 3.5 to 4 hours, plus you'll need to arrive 30 minutes ahead of departure time.
