So glad we were able to learn this as a family (boys ages 13/8). Very cold today, choppy waters but we were still able to enjoy the... More

We went on the two hour family and friends tour. The guide was wonderful. Everyone, even the perpetual whiners, had a great time.

Thoroughly recommend Charleston Outdoor Adventures. Three of us joined a small group on a boat to the lighthouse. A very enjoyable and informative trip. Saw dolphins and lots of other wildlife. Do it!

Derek saw a turtle, but it made a quick dive and we missed it. Very knowledgable guides, who provided excellent education about the local ecosystem. This tour was excellent for both... More

We really enjoyed the evening kayak despite clouds and some rainy weather. Derek and Marija were excellent guides and extremely knowledgable. We were able to see many dolphins and birds throughout the tour. The pace was perfect and they were very patient with us as we are very inexperienced kayakers. We look forward to going back the next time we... More

Thank you for still paddling with us through a bit of rain and clouds! Sometimes those make for the best conditions to paddle. Now that you are no longer inexperienced paddlers you will be able to take on the waterways without any problems! COA loves having new paddlers, teaching the strokes, and working at their pace throughout the trip. Thank... More
