It was hot, but not too hot, as we headed out on the 2 hour swamp tour. Me and my husband, our three kids (4, 7, 13) and my brother in law. Brother in law went tandem with the 7 year old, my husband was tandem with the 4 year old, and the 13 year old and I went solo.... More

My wife and two teenage sons took the Huntington Beach Salt Marsh tour, and it was the highlight of our vacation. The timing of this tour (5:30pm-7:30pm) made for a perfect way to end our last day in Myrtle Beach. The paddling here is easy, even against the tide, and my first-time kayaker wife was all smiles, as were we... More

For some reason we didn't think there were alligators in South Carolina but this kayak tour provided the evidence to the contrary. This was a very good way to spend a morning. I had never kayaked before and I don't know how I could top this first experience. My wife and I went tandem and my two teenage boys each... More

Be sure to reserve ahead as our tour group of 20 was full. You cannot speak to the outfitters on the phone, but the ticketing person was very informative and answered all of our questions. We went at 9:00 a.m. and were fortunate to have a cooler July morning and calm water. The team was very good at getting us... More

We did the black cypress kayak tour. Very informative and interesting. Nice pace and was easy for the whole family. Beautiful scenery and knowledgeable guides.

Went Kayak Fishing with Mike and his assistants, all very professional! We had a blast and caught several species of fish (flounder, croaker, red fish & speckled trout). Returning against the tide was a bit difficult, and they made sure my father-in-law could take a little rest in a sheltered cove before we finished. Everyone was polite, attentive and very... More

We paddled a cypress swamp with a tour guide. Usually I avoid using your guides, however after getting lost in Murrel's Inlet on a hundred degree day, I am wiser now. Mandy, our guide covered history, found and handled animals, knew the names and uses of many local plants and endured my children's and my own questions readily and kindly.... More

Our family was staying at Pawley's Island for the week and decided to take the Salt Marsh tour since it was so close by. To avoid heat, we decided on the 9am tour, which had it's pros and cons. The morning tour had low tide so we didn't get to go out to the ocean, which was a little disappointing,... More

Mandy was our tour guide for the second time. I totally recommend Black River and Mandy. It was a beautiful morning, perfect weather and entertaining. So much fun.

Mandy was an excellent tour guide! The weather was a little too cold to enjoy the beach so we looked for an alternative to be outside. Couldn't have found a more enjoyable activity. I think my kids would have enjoyed the cypress swamp tour better, but the saltmarsh tour was entertaining and fun also.
