My son, my husband, and I decided last minute to go on a kayak tour the Wednesday after Labor Day. I called this company at 8:30am asking if we could go on the 10am tour. I guess they didn't have any other inquiries for that day and time, so they didn't have a guide lined up. Within the hour, they... More

We did a 2 hour tour of shem creek and really loved it. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and gave us some great history of the area and the different wildlife. Will definitely be back!

Did the 2 hour eco tour and learned about the marshes and all the birds and sea life that inhabit them. Fun paddle out to the island with all the pelicans, plovers and seagulls. It was a beautiful day and had a great time. Highlight was having the dolphins swim around the kayaks in the creek area. Highly recommend!

My boyfriend and I are new to Charleston and wanted to find an affordable place to go on a kayak adventure. I booked a 2:00pm tour on a Sunday. The girl on the phone was very friendly. I'm glad she mentioned to bring bottled water, sunscreen, and a hat. It was quite hot that day. We arrived and found out... More

We took the 8am kayak tour with Ben as our guide. We went up shem creek to look at the live oak trees and spot some of the birds like blue herons, brown pelicans and some others. Since our kids were not paddling, they were given a scavenger hunt with pictures of birds, trees and animals to look for. It... More

Took the family on a kayak tour ours of Shem Creek near Charleston, SC. We has a great time kayaking alongside dolphins and cranes and other birds. Our guide was great (Haven). Definitely a fun activity.

They were friendly. They gave good instructions. They even gave advice regarding routes to paddle with the tide and the best strategy to see dolphins. And we did see dolphins - 4 adults, one with a baby. Awesome!

My two cousins and I took a 6 pm sunset kayaking tour in Shem Creek. It was just us and the guide, which was really cool because he let us decide what we wanted to do. We saw dolphins in the creek, paddled around the bird island in the harbor, and hung out to watch the sunset from the harbor.... More
