After reading a couple of reviews for kayaking tours in Myrtle Beach and then visiting the J&L Kayaks website, my 12 year old son and I signed up for the shelling tour to Waties Island. So glad we did. It was great fun! Our guide, PJ, was very knowledgable, patient, and had a good sense of humor!

Very remote and pristine location in the marshland right outside North Myrtle Beach. Getting there is an adventure, and once we arrived, our tour guide, Justin, was fantastic! My girlfriend and I took the 1 hour intro to paddle boarding tour, and Justin had us on our feet and moving in no time! The views are breathtaking, and it's quite... More

Amy, our guide, did a great job of teaching us the basic tips for paddleboarding. We had a great time and will definitely come back if we are ever in the area again.

This was by far the best excursion in Myrtle Beach! This was my first time to Myrtle and it was the best trip! PJ was a wonderful guide and Laurie was so accommodating. I definitely recommend using J & L kayaks!

My wife and I tried paddle boarding for the first time with the one hour tour and it was amazing! Justin did an incredible job showing us all the necessary skills, as well as some great tips on how to continue to improve. We will definitely go back for another tour soon.

We debated for quite some time about what tour would best suite our family and finally decided on the backwater twilight adventure. We are very glad we did. Family of 5 - early college son, teen daughter, tween daughter with us (mom and dad). We used 1 tandem for dad and youngest, and a single for each of the rest... More

Danno was a great guide. Warning to novice kayakers - The ride was tough at high tide. Rough surf and hard to paddle. It was worth it to walk Waites island. Do not bring anything unless you have a "real" dry bag. You will get wet. The return trip through the marsh grass area was a much easier paddle and... More

Had an excellent time on the crabbing tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable about kayaking as well as the local marsh and marine wildlife. He was able and willing to answer to most silly of questions from us northerners. We also had time to explore the island to find hermit crabs, clams, sea shells, and sand dollars. Well worth the...

My 8 year old had a blast and we really enjoyed our first kayak trip. He was ready for the 4 hour tour by the time it was over.
