EP 11: Take a wildlife safari and see Dolphins with Charleston SUP Safaris

Charelston SUP Safari Podcast

Take an eco-tour or SUP Safari in Folly Beach on your next visit to the Charleston, SC area. Today, we chatted with Jon about the safaris that offer dolphin viewing in their natural habitat. They also offer river and surf lessons, rentals, SUP yoga and fitness. I had a pleasure chatting with Jon about his personal journey and what led him to start the company as well as his draw to the southeast after traveling the world and visiting 38 countries.

    The Trip Outside folks are a great crew who are genuinely interested in conservation and helping people responsibly recreate outdoors. The Trip Outside podcasts are a great way to learn more about a destination before you go. Many times, it can be difficult to choose an outfitter or tour company when you don’t know who to trust or anything about the company’s ethics. You can rest assured that any recommendations from Trip Outside have already taken this into account. They also offer very helpful tips and advice about how to plan an outdoor adventure when you don’t know anything about the place you are traveling. Thanks Trip Outside!
