We really enjoyed learning more about the area and of course learning how to paddle board! Our tour guide, Dan, did a great job. We can't wait to go paddle boarding again!

These guys are really friendly and it is nice that there is an educational side to the tour (and a break half way through!) The only critique I would have is that they could use a better camera to take out on the water.

We rented paddle boards and kayaks this year and as usual the staff was great and it was an all around great experience. I went with my 13 and 9 year old and they loved it too!

6 ladies did a SUP adventure as part of my sister's bachelorette party over the weekend. Jon was great with land instructions so we felt ready and confident out on the water. The tour was a lot of fun, we even saw a dolphin! Our tour got pushed back an hour to due to some bad weather but the Charleston... More

My friend and I rented Paddle Boards last week while I was in town visiting from NYC and went out for a few hours. It was a gorgeous day and we had an amazing time. Everyone that we encountered at the shop was super friendly, down to earth, and helpful. There are lots of places in Folly to rent SUP/Kayak,... More

I've been paddling for a couple of years now but Jon made some changes to my stroke and paddling became so much easier. Even remembered me and my wife from a prior visit two years ago.

My wife and I went paddle boarding with Eric and had a great time! He taught us a lot about dolphins and our Eco system as well as paddle boarding. We had a fantastic time thanks so much!!!!!!!!!!

Eric and Al were great guides. My husband and I went with our daughter, who is 9. She is borderline for being old enough but has been kayaking, river rafting, etc. so we gave it a try. Eric was awesome with her. It was a pretty windy day, which is apparently common for the afternoon trip. And SUP is hard... More

We went out 2 days in a row with John C. on the Folly River. He's awesome, patient, and full of knowledge about SUP, sea life, travel, and living life to the fullest. Just about anybody can learn it from him - and see Folly from a whole new perspective.

My wife and I did a two hour tour on in the back bay/river. The guide walked us through a 15 minute "how to" and we were in the water and looking like pros in no time. He was attentive, made sure that any questions were covered, threw out tons of tips on the trip, and even showed my wife... More
