I loved seeing all the dolphins, learning about the marsh, seeing the lighthouse and I loved watching the pelicans! I only have two suggestions. One is to go a little slower, too fast is a little rough and don’t leave passengers on Morris Island without anywhere to sit. It would have been nice to come back from the lighthouse to sit on the boat instead of standing around waiting on your captain and boat to come back. Some of us can’t sit on the ground and it’s hard to stand for long periods.
