My wife and I surprised our kids on our last day of vacation by taking them on the dolphin/ecology tour. It was amazing! David shared with us his wealth of knowledge about the geological features of the sea islands and the many creatures that call the area home. We were able to see many dolphins swimming quite close to us.... More

This was our last weekend together for a bit and we wanted to do something fun and active together. This fit the bill perfectly. We got the ecology and dolphin tour and Kim and David made it awesome. I've kayaked many times, my husband's only gone a couple times, but we both felt really comfortable. Kim caught some local wildlife... More

The shrimp tour was our second tour Beaufort Kayak Tours. David and Kim shared their vast knowledge about shrimping habitat, industry, etc. The tour went through creeks, grasses, etc. We cannot wait to book another tour with them.

We decided to book a morning kayak tour, and had a wonderful time. Owner Irene was a pleasure to talk to, and Chondra, our guide was great! In addition to the tour through the marshes, she taught us how to fish with a casting net. Although our time was just about up, Chondra encouraged us to carry on since we... More

Took the Hunting Island tour today. Kim and David were very personable and knowledgeable. The scenery was beautiful along with perfect weather. Learned about all the "critters" we saw, talked about "local" interests and even got a geology overview of the barrier islands. Book a tour, it was fun!

Our first kayaking tour turned out to be so much fun. Loved the history, horticulture, and the law of ACE Basin that was shared by Kim and David. We are ready to book another tour. This is great for all levels of kayakers......no matter the age or expertise. Thank you for such a good time.
