Botany Bay Ecotours
Our focus at Botany Bay Ecotours is to provide content-rich programs that have a low impact on the environment. We offer a variety of tours and we're glad to work with you to create a custom tour during your visit. Kayaking is for people with an active lifestyle and children 14 and older. If you prefer less activity or have younger children, we recommend a motorboat tour. All tours depart from Edisto Marina (3702 Dock Site Rd.) unless otherwise noted. Here's a sampling of our most popular tours...(Prices reflect $3 per person booking fee).
Dolphin Kayak and Boat EcoTours: These trips focus on the ever-popular bottlenose dolphins. Paddle or cruise with the dolphins and learn about their amazing life history. Keep in mind that dolphins are wild animals and we can't guarantee their presence. However, we feel a trip on the water in the ACE Basin is
always a worthy way to spend time whether the dolphins join us or not.
Kayaking is for people who enjoy outdoor, physical activity. The boat
tour is for people who prefer a more relaxed outing. $50 per person, 90
minutes. SPECIAL of $47 per adult, $25 per child ages 5-12! Ages 4 and under free. If you have a group of 6 or more, ask about our group rates.
Sunset Cruise: Unreel and unwind while your captain takes you on a cruise that is the perfect ending to a day on Edisto. Watch the birds heading for their roosts, the dolphins feeding and your cares slipping away. Bring a cold beverage of your choice to treat yourself or make it a perfect date night. $49 per person - 1 1/2 hours.

Turtle Talk and Beach Walk: Join a sea turtle biologist to learn about the plants and animals of the beach system, including the loggerhead sea turtle! Not only will you find out about these amazing animals' life history, but also how to enjoy the night beach and perhaps see them nesting or hatching. Most importantly, you will learn the proper ecotour way to observe them without disturbing them. We call this Sea Turtle 101- everything you wanted to know about these incredible animals that nest along our beach. Sea turtles are federally protected, so if encountered, they cannot be touched or photographed with a flash.
$18 per adult, $13 for children ages 4-15, Free for children under 4. 1 hour. May-September.
