Cool, informative and a great workout! Our guide was so friendly and helpful! Definitely would go back! Learned a lot about the wildlife, saw some dolphins up close and personal and even found some shark teeth as a memoire!

We had a great time on the 3-hour Wambaw Creek. Teresa was our guide and she was extremely knowledgeable about the wildlife and environment. I would highly recommend her as your guide.

Highly recommend doing the guided kayaking through the Blackwater swamp outside of McClellanville. We saw amazing cypress trees, turtles, a cottonmouth and woodpeckers. Our guide was wonderful as he shared a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm and we thoroughly enjoyed soaking up the swamp atmosphere.

A friend and I opted for a Thanksgiving three hour swamp kayak with John- our guide from Nature Adventures Outfitters- versus the more traditional approach to the day. What an amazing experience- the Wambaw Creek wilderness is a swamp- beautiful, vast, still, full of life. John was an expert guide providing all types of information on the delicate ecosystem that...

My husband and I signed up just a few days in advance while visiting Charleston mid October 2015. We have only kayaked a few times, but I really wanted to see the natural beauty of Charleston up close. We went on a 2 hour guided tour, and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Very glad that we made time... More

My girlfriends and I chose Nature Adventure Outfitters to go kayaking and they were unbelievably wonderful! To start, I wasn't supposed to go, so I didn't have proper shoes. They let me borrow some for free! And let us use their sun tan lotion! Who does that anymore? The tour itself was outstanding. Tillman is a doll! Very knowledgable, super... More

We were hesitant to go due to bad storms the previous night. We were assured that the morning kayak trip would be smooth and they were right. They've been doing this for many years. We trusted their expertise and had a great time!

Ben asked me to help him out with the odds and ends of a team building event for a group of MUSC residences and I was happy to oblige. The day started off with close to 40 young adults arriving at Nature Adventures and while the kayaks were being prepared, Ben and I did some preliminary personality games and teamwork... More

My fiance and I did the two hour kayak tour through Shem Creek, the marsh and to Bird Island. We spent our morning paddling and learning about Charleston's history and wildlife. We saw dolphins and hundreds of birds including pelicans, egrets, marsh hens and others. Ed also showed us several of the historic fossils that he has found throughout his... More

I really loved our tour of the blackwater swamp outside of Charleston. If you are driving from Wilmington, it's the perfect thing to do on the way out of the city while driving back north. Our tour guide was exceptionally knowledgeable, and made the trip both fun and informative. She told us all about the ecosystem, history of the area,... More
