Botany Bay Ecotours


Botany Bay Ecotours is owned and operated by a local biologist, so our ecotours are crafted to help people enjoy and understand the amazing plants and animals that make this area their home.

Our programs combine cultural history and natural history because they 
have been inextricably linked since humans first arrived on our coast. Our fishing charters allow guests to sustainably harvest in a tradition that dates back 4,000 years on Edisto. Our experienced guide is comfortable teaching first time fishers or showing pros the best spots in the area.


Whether you’re a long-time resident or just visiting for vacation, after a 
tour with us you'll come away with a better understanding of this wild area of our coast.

Yes, we welcome well behaved dogs and owners!
