Great lesson! My son was the on,y one in the class as it was October so great first experience paddleboarding. The instructor kept him in a two line since he is light and the current can be strong. Dolphin sightings are always a bonus.

My friend and I recently enjoyed a kayak trip with Matt Gamble of Nature Adventures. We had traveled to Charleston to mostly dive deep into historic preservation but we also wanted to have a sense of the area -- and what could be better than a nature tour? My friend had never been in a kayak before so there was... More

My sister and I spent the weekend in Mt Pleasant SC and decided to try kayaking. It was an awesome experience! The staff was very helpful and we were on the water for 4 hours. We saw dolphins swimming in the water near us and just enjoyed the scenery on Shem Creek. If you are adventurous and enjoy being outdoors... More

We took a blackwater kayak tour trip on Wambaw Creek. The positives first. The trip itself was a lot of fun. Beautiful scenery, the guide was very informative, and we had a lot of fun. We even saw a couple small alligators. Also, the online directions to the starting point were very helpful and specific. They made sure to tell... More

I had kayaked on a small pond for less than a half hour so knew I wanted to "really" kayak. I called Sunday morning and they had a 2:00 tour. My 67 year old mom and I drove from Columbia and had the best time ever! We are both recently active but were concerned about ability and frankly, snakes. We... More

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

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!
