Here’s a new one – a two seat, down-low compact power catamaran that reaches speeds up to 30 miles an hour! And you drive it yourself! Think of it as a combination of a boat, waverunner and kayak for two – with a bimini top.
This unique watercraft, known as a CraigCat®, is not only fun, but also very safe and stable. This sporty runabout has really caught on as the perfect way to tour the marshes and open waters of the Lowcountry.
Professionally guided sightseeing and nature tours are available daily year around. You start with a brief training session during which you are fitted with a life vest. Your guide will then lead you on a 2-1/2 hour adventure past the stately homes on Broad Creek, past the Harbour Town Lighthouse to the waters off Daufuskie Island. You may even skim up the May River or onto the Intracoastal Waterway. All the while you’ll learn about the history of the area and have plenty of “photo ops” while observing dolphin and other marine life just a few feet away from your boat. This may just be the most fun you’ll have on your vacation.
Tours are available in the morning, afternoon, at sunset, and to the Tuesday night fireworks during the summer. All equipment (including life vests and coolers) is included. It is suggested that you bring sunscreen, sunglasses, water shoes, sandals or flip flops, and a towel as you will get wet. If its cool a light jacket, windbreaker, sweatshirt or rain jacket may be in order. There are some age and weight restrictions. Tour times are seasonal so make sure you book online or call ahead.
