Surprised my family with a 2-hour Salt Marsh Tour. Ages ranged from 17 to 80! Great idea, and everyone loved it, but it was just a little too hard for my 80 year old dad and 78 year old mom. So was it a flop...absolutely not! Guides Chris and Mandy took it all in stride! Without a blip, Chris hooked... More

This has to be the highlight of this year's beach trip for me. We met our guide, Spaz, at the landing early in the morning and were surprised to only see 3 kayaks ready for the water. Spaz confirmed that we were the only ones on the tour that morning (2 is the minimum number for a guided tour). We... More

My sister and I enjoyed a wonderful four hour kayak tour of the salt marshes in Huntington Beach State Park. It was just the two of us with a guide, so it was quiet and lovely to paddle along and enjoy the beautiful scenery. The equipment was in good condition and the paddling was not strenuous as we went during... More

Our family of 4 enjoyed a very informative, fun filled day on the salt marsh! Dad and one daughter are not good swimmers and were a little nervous, but ended up having a wonderful time on their first ever kayaking trip. Thanks for a great experience!

Would highly recommend this company for kayak tours. We had a family group of 13 people, ranging from ages 3 to 70, and everyone really enjoyed themselves on this trip. It was a two hour kayak excursion through the salt marsh. Learned a lot about Murrells Inlet and the wildlife and pluff mud within it. Even saw an alligator a... More

A really great 4 hour kayak tour of cyprus swamp and Sandy Island. Very informative information about plant life, animals and area history. Our guide was wonderful. Since we are local folks, we plan to tour again and take the evening tour. Could't have asked for a better kayak tour.

We did the 9:00 am SUP tour on the Waccamaw River and it was a very peaceful and beautiful experience. Trent was our guide and he was punctual in meeting us, very patient, warm and friendly, and he gave us an outstanding lesson in how to best navigate our paddleboards. 3 of the 4 in our group had paddle-boarded before,...

We were a group of four including an eight year old girl. The four hour kayak to Sandy island was the highlight of our trip to Pawleys this year. It was quiet, well-paced time on the river and creeks. We saw plenty of wildlife including ospreys and bullfrogs. Our guide was ready to excellent at spotting things we would have... More

Our crew of 4 did the 9 am 2 hour swamp tour. My son, an experienced kayaker, and his girlfriend got the single kayaks. Because we had never kayaked before and I was extremely nervous about doing it, my husband and I opted for a tandem kayak. Ugh, big mistake. It was rather difficult to maneuver for us newbies. We...
