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

Yes, this tour was relaxing, but at 2 1/2 hours there was not much too see along the banks of the river other than trees, tall grasses, and ospreys. We saw a few former plantation homes from the river and they were okay. On a positive note, the guide was knowledgeable about local lore in the area and you can... More

We took a ride onWaccamaw Lady Plantation Tour. The guide was very inforamative about the area. She talked about the eco system along the river as it was hundreds of years ago and today. It was the first time that I had heard the explanation of the Gullah culture in the many trips that I have taken to the Tidewater... More

And will definitely go again! Captain Joseph and staff did an excellent job of making us feel welcome & safe! The tour boat was spacious and comfortable. The "tour" was incredible! Such lovely scenery that we would never have had the chance to see otherwise! Our tour guide was very well informed and gave us great info on each of... More

If you're looking for something different, the Plantation River Tours Waccamaw River Airboat tour is worth checking out. The ride is reasonably tame and not really a "thrill" ride, but it's a fun way to see a part of the Myrtle Beach area that most visitors never see. The boat is comfortable, and the captain is friendly and knowledgeable. My... More

Nice calming waters which allowed for a beautiful scentic tour. We did not get to see any animals except for a few birds. Wouldn't recommend doing this tour in the extreme heat. The first half of the tour was full of history, but on the loop back we passed the same things so it was a bit slow. Good way... More
