Charleston Eco Tours by Angler Management

Experience the beauty of Charleston's saltwater eco system on an Angler Management Eco tour. These half or full-day charters are an excellent way to see what the Lowcountry's estuaries and barrier islands have to offer.

Charleston, South Carolina, coastal habitat is made up of ocean, sandy beaches, maritime forests, salt marshes, tidal flats, bays, and estuaries. These areas are home to many different species of fauna and marine life. Charleston Eco tours includes visiting and learning about each of these areas and the life that inhabits them.

Take a trip out to Capers Island Marine Preserve, Morris Island, Folly Beach, or the backside of Kiawah Island, where we will spend the day shelling or learning about the plants and marine life that inhabit these barrier islands.

Dolphins or porpoises are regularly seen in the Charleston area and can be viewed playing with each other or feeding on schooling fish. Manatees are becoming more plentiful in the area. I have seen a number of them in the harbor and Shem Creek.

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 sites 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,” uses posts and pylons in the area as their nesting sites. If you are a birdwatcher, then this is the tour for you.

Crabbing trips are also an option while we are out there. These trips are fun and informative, especially for the children.

The perfect day trip for family or friends, Angler Management Eco tours, ensures a fun, informative day on the water.


Ethan is a phenomenal captain. He knows the area very well and will put you on the fish. I have been on quite a few fishing charters and Ethan is at the top of my list for when I return.
