If you enjoy the outdoors, being active on your vacation, and supporting a very lovely business Charleston Outdoor Adventures is the place you need to go.
This past August my husband and I traveled to Charleston and we always enjoy being outside. I knew we wanted to do some kayaking but I didn't know which company. I can't remember why I chose COA but am so glad I did! We did the early morning 2-hour kayak and it was just my husband and I with another couple. We had an EXCEPTIONAL guide. She had graduated from the College of Charleston with a degree in marine biology and you could instantly see how passionate and knowledgeable she was about the wildlife around us. Not only did she tell us about everything from stone crabs to fiddler crabs to the cranes and dolphins we saw, but also stories of local fisherman, her experience in Charleston, and provided great recommendations. If you just rent the kayaks and go off by yourself, I think you're missing out.
While my husband and I are very active, you DO NOT need to be in great shape to do this kayaking tour. It really is for everyone. Just a tip: If I were you, I'd pick a single kayak. It's a lot of fun steering it yourself instead of chancing a fight with your spouse on the water (we were with honeymooners....and they were getting a bit cold with one another! :)
If we ever return to Charleston, COA will be our number one thing on our itinerary. It was the BEST experience we had. Money well spent. This is not a tourist "trap" (i.e. spend a lot of money, don't get much in return, nothing unique or interesting about it). This business is compromised of a handful of individuals that love what they do and want to share it with others.
