Experience a True Southern Shrimp Boil

Indulge in Barrier Island Eco Tours’ beachside cookout, complete with fresh local shrimp, smoked sausage, sweet corn, red potatoes, and onions – all boiled to perfection in their southern-style spices. These cookouts are available year-round as public or private experiences, which offer breathtaking sunset views, a chance to play games, make memories, and have fun.

Old Fashioned Crab Fishing

Take an excursion with Barrier Island Eco Tours as you fish for crabs the traditional way – with a hand line and net! You will learn how to pull crabs, the history of the blue and stone crab, and the other wildlife you are sure to encounter on their Blue Crabbing Trip. Finish it off with the grande finale: a Lowcountry crab boil, prepared for you from that morning’s crab pull.
