We booked the 2.5 hour Waites Island shelling trip. We arrived for our 2:00 tour feeling nervous, unsure, and filled with trepidation. Our guide Dano gave us some brief instruction and assured us that as long as we listened and heeded his instructions there would be no capsizing (our biggest fear, of course). My first challenge was to get myself... More

We were just down in North Myrtle Beach on vacation from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. These guys were so professional!... Always laughing, making jokes, just having a great time. They made all 10 of us newbies feel very comfortable, even when we had no idea what we were doing. They promised a good time and delivered!...thanks!

My girlfriend and I were first time kayakers. Our guide made the entire experience extremely comfortable and relaxing. We enjoyed a nice paddle through some tall grasses in a marsh making our way to bigger bodies of water. It was a great experience and one that I recommend to everyone who has ever wanted to kayak! I will definitely be... More

We have used J & L kayaks for the past 2 years. The sunrise kayak tour was amazing. We also recently tried paddle boarding which was fun. The staff is friendly and patient! They make sure your experience is exactly what you want!

Wow. What a great experience. Five of us went for my daughter's 19th birthday and it was wonderful. It was from 7:30 to 9:30 at night and we each got military grade glow sticks. It couldn't have been better! I would highly recommend it.

Great kayak trip with an excellent guide. We were the only people in the group and had a fantastic time. Caught and released 19 blue crabs. Relaxing trip that was well worth the price. Highly recommend it for a family outing.

Truly nice people run this operation on a beautiful river. We took sunset tour and it was worth it. Much cooler than daytime which was 90. At end of kayak tour, all the teens loved swinging and paddle boarding in the family pond. 12 minutes from N Myrtle Beach, but a world away.

I booked a 2.5 hour shelling tour for our family of 5 at the beginning of July. None of us had ever been kayaking before. We all had such a good time we booked the 4 hour crabbing tour with the same guide, Austin, the very next day. Austin is a GREAT guide, very knowledgable about the area and wildlife... More

Took the crabbing tour in the evening, and Bradley took us to a place that was beautiful where the family caught our limit in crabs! We learned a wealth of information and we enjoyed every minute of it. All equipment was well maintained and in good working order, and Bradley was patient and informative. Loved it!
