Transportation to folly beach

My Wife and I are staying in the HD for a 4 day weekend and we were not planning on having a rental car. We were hoping to go kayaking near folly beach. From what I can tell, there are only two options for us. Either take the bus near there and walk, or just take a cab. Is there any other option I am missing? What would you recommend? Thanks!

Many people rent cars just for one day. Enterprise will deliver one to you.

For kayaking use Ralph Earhart. He is the best!

There is not really another option other than renting a car. If you get a taxi, you will have to call for one and wait on it to arrive (or have your hotel do it) and then do the same when you are ready to return downtown. Cabs here do not drive around looking for fares like they do in larger cities.

You can also stand up paddle board on Folly and that is very cool as well. With the river and the marshes, it is a safe, easier place to learn rather than the open ocean. Either way, you will love it there. Enjoy!
