Not only is the scenery beautiful but the ecological information that is exchanged is eye opening. Our guides, Kim and David, were very knowledgeable, friendly and safety conscious. Level of kayaking experience is very minimal as Kim and Dave guide you through any situation. The outing is scheduled as a 2 1/2 hour trip but there is no sense of... More

Go ahead and make a reservation to any of Kim and David's trips!, Both Kim and David are great guides. Easy going, helpful, friendly, full of knowledge, and great guides. They know the area and the salt marshes well. David shared his findings from cast netting. Kim shared her connections to the environment. Don't hesitate...go ahead !

Took two of their trips this weekend. Hunting Island on Saturday and The Ace Basin on Sunday. Both were wonderful trips full of fun and nature. Kim and David were fantastic. They kept the group together even with novice paddlers and shared information about both eco systems and the area history. Would highly recommend if you are looking for something... More

As part of the Women's Coastal Skills Clinic we were treated to a wonderful experience with Kim and David of Beaufort Kayak Tours. We first rec'd a class on the basics, then got into the kayaks and toured the Hunting Island State Park Lagoon. It was a perfect day and Kim and David provided guidance, instruction, and they are a... More

My old Boy Scout troop from the 1960's has a reunion event every year, and for the past three years all of us 60+ year old Boy Scouts have met in Beaufort, SC and kayaked the Beaufort River. Beaufort Kayak Tours provided our boats every year and has always been super acommodating to our schedule. Taking into account the strong... More

If spending some time in Beaufort, don't hesitate to book a kayak trip with Kim and David. We did the Hunting Island trip and it was fun and incredibly informative. Kim and David have a perfect system down that compliments each others strengths and talents. We saw a lot of wildlife and learned all about the ecology of the area.... More

My friend and I went on the ACE basin tour. We loved it and now want to go on the other tour. We were given a lot of information about the salt marsh, rice fields, alligators, birds and more. We learned a lot and had a lovely day on the water. Make sure to bring water and use the restroom... More

My wife and I had a great time on the Salt Marsh Ecology Tour with Kim. We are still relatively new to kayaking and normally use sit on top kayaks. These were sit inside kayaks that were very stable and easy to paddle. Even though initially we were the only 2 and were below the 4 minimum, Kim was going... More
