Rover Boat Tours takes sight-seers out on a three to four-hour eco-tourism excursion aboard the Carolina Rover, a 40-foot pontoon boat that's perfect for a day-trip on the Lowcountry's smooth inlet waters. The cruise takes riders to Georgetown Light, the oldest lighthouse in South Carolina, where bird-viewers will be able to have a field day watching the native winged population.
After that, it's time to explore and comb the beach for shell treasures, one of the sea's greatest gifts to land. On the way out and back, naturalist guides aboard the Rover will be dispensing information on historical sites such as the USS Harvest Moon, as well as pointing out bald eagles, alligators, dolphins, sturgeon, and many other wildlife wonders. Tour rates are $35 for adults and $25 for children ages 12 and under.
