Spend the Day in the Barrier Islands

Take a trip out to several of Charlestons barrier islands where we will spend the day shelling and getting great photos of plants and marine life that inhabit these secluded barrier islands.

Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins & Manatees

All the rivers and inlets around Charleston host Atlantic bottlenose dolphins. Bottlenose dolphins live in small pods of up to 12 members; they are very social animals.

On a typical day it is very common to find pods of dolphins working together catching feeding on fish in what is known as strand feeding. Strand feeding ritual unique to the dolphins of South Carolina and Georgia. Known as ‘strand feeding’, this practice involves a group of dolphins herding a school of fish or shrimp onto a sandbar or beach. Next, the dolphins literally launch their bodies, which could weigh up to 500 pounds, out of the water and onto the sandbar or shore to feed. It truly is a breathtaking site to witness. These beautiful animals can be found year round in Charleston.

Manatees are becoming more plentiful in the area. Capt. Tom has seen a number of them in the Charleston harbor and in Mt. Pleasant’s, Shem Creek.

MANY VARIETIES OF BIRD LIFE
See these species feeding in close proximity

The barrier islands are also host to a great variety of birds. The brown pelican, terns, skimmers, sanderlings, gulls and many other species claim these islands as nesting sights and can be viewed on a regular basis. Egrets and herons inhabit the marshy areas where they can be seen cruising the mud flats in search of food. The osprey, known as “the fish hawk” use posts and pylons in the area as their nesting sights. All of these species can be seen feeding and in close proximity.
