A Fun & Educational Cruise

This 1.5-hour trip occurs during high tides when The Explorer can navigate the smaller channels from the MarshWalk down to Huntington Beach State Park and out to the rock jetties before returning through the main channel.

Listen to stories of Murrells Inlet, early plantation owners and Civil War history, as well as informative stories about the rich heritage and resources that make Murrells Inlet the paradise that many enjoy.

Topics include the original plantation families, the fishing boats and captains that started our sea-going tradition, the families that settled in the area, the origin of the restaurants and our seafood culture, and the natural history of the resources and creeks that are the reason Murrells Inlet is loved by so many.

The Explorer is a United States Coast Guard Certified and Inspected vessel that is 54′ in length and has a bathroom.
