This was a wonderful first time experience despite the chilly 50 degree weather. Owners were so wonderful and took the time explaining "how to" kayak and checked back several times during the two hour tour. They definitely have first hand knowledge of the area and offered many historical and nature tips along the way. Due to the chilly weather they... More

We took the ACE Basin Tour with David, and we highly recommend it. We paddled leisurely through the marshes and abandoned rice fields. David is friendly and very knowledgeable about the area and the history. The marshes are beautiful, and the late afternoon timing allowed us to see a gorgeous sunset. David was great about rescheduling due to anticipated bad... More

My husband and I went on a kayak trip with David. What a wonderful time! The weather was perfect. David shared so many neat and interesting facts about Beaufort, the waters and the overall area. We saw dolphin, shark, stingray, many types of fish and even a bald eagle. I highly recommend this trip to anyone visiting Beaufort. What a... More

We recently went on a ~3 hour kayak tour of the salt marshes in and around Beaufort with David. We learned so much from his insights and experience! I will not pass over a salt marsh without thinking about the abundance of life that depends on the ecology of the region!

David and Kim did a wonderful job of explaining the cultural and economic history of the area while leading us on a beautiful trip on the creeks and rivers and even an old plantation rice impoundment. Fabulous scenery, great paddling, wonderful morning!

My family just took the Hunting Island tour with Kim and David. We LOVED it! I was in a tandem with my 12yo and my 15yo son and wife were in singles. None of us had ever kayaked before, but I had so much fun I now want to buy my own kayak. We will most definitely take Kim and... More

We did the Hunting Island tour and for the part we got to do before the bad weather threatened to move in, it was awesome. Kim and David are both great. I have never had a kayak tour where I was actually shown that there is a right and left side to a paddle or how to hold it! Particularly... More

Kim and David were great. This was more than just hopping in kayaks and going; they showed us the life that exists in the marsh land. Highly recommend their tour!

Kim and David took us on a long kayak trip through the marshes to Machette Flats, a little fishing island. It was such a fun trip. They don't do this one very often because it's so long, but this was a special 4th of July tour. We had a group of 10 plus Kim and David. One always hung in... More

My family and I went with Kim and David on the ACE Basin tour. It was fantastic! None of us had ever kayaked before, but that didn't matter. Kim and David made sure everyone felt comfortable and prepared. The scenery was beautiful and the "history lessons" were great. The kids are already asking if we can do the other tours... More
