They advertise plantation river cruise. You will see lots of trees and told about the plantations that existed in that location. We saw one plantation, however I never saw the slave houses and had limited view of house. Didn't see any wildlife. Very expensive for what you got $100 for a family of four to basically look at trees and... More

The boat trip was hot, long and boring! I had to fight sleep! My granddaughter was very bored almost from the beginning. To think we paid $90.00 for this? There was hardly anything to see. I thought there would be southern plantations, alligators and just a more pleasant experience than this! There were only a few plantations back in the... More

On our recent visit to the Myrtle Beach area, we took the Airboat Tour running our of Wacca Wache Marina. It was a great experience. The boat easily held all 7 of us. The kids especially had a great time, and we even got to see a baby alligator. Our guide was very knowledgable about the area, and turned the... More

If you want just a relaxing river cruise, this 2+ hour trip is what you want. Lovely tree lined river. If you think you will see plenty of Plantations - Wrong! Most of the plantations no longer exist. Many references to the rice paddies, but views are blocked by the trees. Some birds, but no alligators. Guide was knowledgeable, but... More

It wasn't fun at all. Very expensive. And didn't see really anything. Seen only two plantation but from very far away. No snacks or beverages on the boat. You can take them on. And the bathroom aboard stunk really bad.

This review is for the AIR BOAT TOUR and not the Waccamaw Lady Plantation Tour. I was thoroughly impressed with our recent river/inlet tour on the 8-seater air boat running out of Wacca Wache Marina. From the initial telephone call, making inquiries about the tour through the last picture taken with our air boat captain - the staff was extremely... More

This used to be rice plantations; it's not any more. Over there used to be a plantation; it's not there any more. There are a lot of new mansions being built on the left side, behind all the trees.You probably won't be able to see them. Sometimes there are alligators in the river, but not now. There's one of the... More

I own a summer beach property in this area and like to take guests to interesting places. I had taken this trip three times in the past because this tour was very informative regarding history of the rice plantation, Gullah culture and wildlife knowledge and sightings. I took a fourth trip yesterday and what a change. First, the boat had... More

Enjoyed the historical perspective of the islands and Georgetown and the leisure time on the island collecting sea shells.

We chose to do this tour on our recent trip to garden city. We did the hour+ tour through the swamp. It truly is a unique way to experience the swamp. My wife and four year old participated. Our biggest concern was inappropriate hearing protection for our son. The boat captain (male and didn't get his name) provided the foam... More
