My wife and I, along with another couple took the Plantation Tour the other day. We were lucky enough to get four of the twelve seats which are at the front of the boat, and though covered on the top, are opened on the sides, so we got beautiful, fresh air for the entire ride. That could not be said... More

We went on the Plantation Tour and really enjoyed the history of the marsh, swamp and Plantation houses. We saw lots of birds, turtles and a few gators - even a pretty big one! The people were polite and the boat was clean and neat. Fun side trip and the guide was well spoken so we enjoyed our day.

What else can you at the beach on a rainy day? Although I am sure it would be even better on a nice day! Informative guide explained about the surrounding areas and plantations. Nice two-hour tour of the rivers. Good value

we sat on the outside of the boat and it was really cool, but for taking photos it was a great place to stand or sit. What a great place to go and the guide was so informative. Well worth the money.

We went on the Waccamaw Lady Pontoon boat. The tour was good... the guide was new but did a good job. Captain Scott was fun, and everything was good... except the seats are too low to be able to see out the window properly..we spent most of the time standing, in order to be able to see what was being...

The staff here were very nice and informative. The view from the office was really pretty! We had 3 adults and 5 kids, from 4-11 years in age. Everyone loved it! There was another family that rode with us so the boat was full! We saw a couple of alligators, lots of turtles, and a ton of birds! The captain... More

Plantations are few and difficult to always see. Ride of two and a half hours is way too long. $ 30.00 seems too high for this tour. The boat guides were friendly and informative. The two outside horn speakers cannot be heard when boat is moving in a fast forward motion. Many of the seats on the boat face inward... More

Wasn't what I expected. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. There was a lot of history being told as the plantations are no longer there. We did see a few homes on the PeeDee River where the big old plantation homes are still there....but they are mostly covered with trees. The boat did slow down a few times for pictures... More

My husband and I took the Airboat Tour this morning. There were only four of us on the tour, plus the captain. It was a wonderful experience! We had times when we went along at a good speed, and others when we coasted as the captain explained different historic and geographic points of interest, or pointed out ospreys, snakes, alligator,...

Promise of plantations gone unfulfilled. Saw a lot of places that may have been plantations or rice fields years ago, but now just 2 hours of trees and overgrown grass.. No wildlife, no real plantations nothing of interest. Waste of time unless you really like looking at trees. At $30 per person I strongly recommend not taking this tour.
