Adventure Carolina provides several guided kayak and canoe river and lake trips in Columbia. We also have the ability to create a trip for any group up to 100. Our trips are on the Congaree River, Saluda River, Broad River, Lake Murray, Congaree Creek, and Cedar Creek. We are approved to guide kayak trips in the Congaree National Park. We rent River Tubes for trips down the local rivers and offer shuttle services. We also are a full kayak and canoe rental shop with a 3000 square foot retail store selling lots of watersports equipment. Winter season activities include ski rentals, and snow skiing trips.

I went on a kayak trip down the Congaree River in Columbia, SC and thorough enjoyed the experience. It was the first time kayaking for many of us but our guides from Adventure Carolina made this trip a breeze. We saw lots of wildlife including turtles, blue herons, geese, and mallard ducks. The Congaree River is very scenic. This was... More

Adventure Carolina provided a fantastic canoe trip down the Congaree River for a group of teenagers from our church. They communicated clearly, overcame some mistakes I made with planning, offered great training and provided excellent customer service for a group of teenagers that weren't all on the same skill level. The guides displayed patience and were very professional with our... More

Not enough can be said about the customer service that this business provides to people that are new customers! Kevin went above and beyond to assist me in finding particular river gear that I was desperately trying to locate. Even though this outfitter didn't have it, Kevin went out of his way to locate an outfitter that had what I... More

Adventure Carolina set up a private guided tour for us on Cedar Creek in Congaree National Park. We had a great time. Our guide, Doug, was awesome. We met him at the landing, and he had everything we needed ready to go. The kayaks and lifevests were in great condition. We spent 3.5 hours paddling through the swamp. Doug even... More

Just got back by visiting my daughter in Columbia and we did the Congaree River trip. We had paid to do the same trip in September 2012, but could not make it. Kevin the owner gave us full credit toward this trip. The whole organization was smoothly run, and even though we had many first time paddlers on the trip,... More

Went into these guy's shop just to check it out, and I ended up signing up for a Congaree River Trip. I was a little nervous about getting on the water, but they made me feel very comfortable about it ahead of time. Upon arrival, the guides continued to reassure me and calm my worries and got me focused on... More
