We scheduled this kayak tour during our stay at Myrtle Beach during the Christmas holidays. The email we received prior to the tour provided very specific directions and what to bring. We were met by Paul and the "group" was comprised of only me and my spouse. We were early but Paul was ready for us and we departed early.... More

We were a party of 10, ages 12-71, in Christmas week. With uncertain rain and wind conditions, we had excellent communication with Black River allowing a last minute decision to go as the weather broke in our favor. Richard and Paul were excellent guides navigating the marsh as the tide went out, identifying many birds and relating local historical anecdotes.... More

We really enjoyed paddling with you and your family. Even though the weather forecast was ominous, we were able to use the future weather radar and squeeze in the tour with no rain at all. Many people miss out on kayaking in the winter, but there are some great opportunities. We look forward to seeing all of you again -... More

I did the Salt Marsh tour with my 14-year-old son and we both loved it. The guide was excellent and we learned a lot about both the wildlife and history of the area while having fun. A worthwhile outing and a definite highlight of our trip!

Our family (Dad, Mom, 2 adult daughters) did the 4 hour salt marsh tour with Paul. He has a deep well of knowledge about this area, the vegetation, and animals which made the trip quite interesting!

We did the 2 hr kayak tour on the salt marsh and had an awesome time. Our guide (Paul) was very knowledgable and had lots of entertaining stories of "local lore". We also had Katie from Huntington State Park. She added LOTS of great information. Between the two of them - we were thoroughly entertained and educated all at the... More

We are glad you enjoyed the Kayak Tour with Paul and Katie. We love doing tours in partnership with Huntington Beach State Park. We also offer Cypress Swamp Tours and Sandy Island Tours, if you want to check out the freshwater side of the area. Thanks, Richard More

My 12 year old daughter and I went on the 2 hour Salt Marsh Tour and we LOVED it!! The time was a perfect amount for her and the guide was funny, knowledgeable and obviously passionate!! We can't wait to do the tour again or another tour by Black River Outdoors.

I had a terrific time kayaking with Black River last week. We left from Huntingdon Beach State Park and paddled around the salt marsh for a couple of hours. It was peaceful, fun and fascinating. The guide was the best!

We had a great time. My best friend and I REALLY wanted to see some sea turtles and our guide (Paul) made sure we got to see one. We got to see a shark (from a safe distance) and that thrilled us too. It was pretty windy and it even began to pour down rain (A.K.A. "High Humidity"... lol) but... More
