What people are saying about South Carolina

It was a relaxing activity and gave a different of a view of the island-from the water! The guide was great at pointing out different birds and points of interest. Also, it was great getting in and out of the kayak on a platform and launching off from that. It made it easy to get in and out.

Cindy was a wonderful guide, knowledgeable and friendly! We had never gone kayaking before and did just fine. You will get wet so plan accordingly.

Parker was an awesome guide and the sunrise kayak tour was beautiful. Calm waters and easy for a beginner to learn quickly and enjoy the tour.
