“A great time on the water”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We are very grateful for the kindness and hospitality shown to us by Cooper, Brad and Anna during our 3hr kayak expedition and 2hr paddle boarding outing. Myself, my spouse and two teenage children were all new to the Charleston area and to kayaking and paddle boarding. We greatly appreciated the patience of the staff in getting us up to speed so we could enjoy our new found hobbies. They were very welcoming and informative about the nearby river, creek and estuary and clearly loved what they do.

Thank YOU and your family for coming out and having such a great time! It was awesome to see all four of you standing up on your boards! Definitely a proud moment. I'm so glad you were able to come on two of our excellent excursions, I hope to see you again next year!!

“Paddle boarding and kayaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We had 4 adults and 2 preteens with 3 paddle boards, a double and single kayak. We were given a lesson, a map and told where to go. We had a great time and the staff was wonderful. They gave us all the instructions we needed and let us go exploring. It was beautiful and fun!

“Great morning on Folly Creek!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

We absolutely loved our kayaking trip with COA. Our guide Cooper took us out in the estuary of Folly Creek for two hours and we were able to see dolphins, storks, oysters and all kinds of other other good stuff! She was very knowledgeable about everything around us and we never felt rushed. My daughters (18,16 and 13) had a great time and learned a ton! The staff was helpful getting us in and out of the water- Thank you so much! We will be back next summer!!

“Wonderful kayak trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

We took the 2 hour Twilight kayak paddle tour and had a wonderful time. The scenery was beautiful, and the two guides on the tour with us were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We learned a lot about the local marine life and about some of the conservation issues affecting the Charleston ecosystem. The trip was fun, easy (the paddling itself was much less difficult than I'd anticipated), informative and an ideal way to experience Charleston's waterways. We are already looking forward to our next kayak trip with Charleston Outdoor Adventures!

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

We booked a paddle board tour and the Morris Island lighthouse tour today. My wife and I had a blast! Our guide Brad was highly knowledgeable about the surrounding ecosystems while teaching us how to stand up on the paddle board. I thought it was going to be really hard but Brad was a great help to us both. Then, in the afternoon, Captain Joe took us on the lighthouse tour where we saw about 20 wild dolphins up close, including a baby dolphin! That was my favorite part so far! We're coming back tomorrow for kayaking! Definitely an excellent place to spend some time outdoors in Charleston!

Fantastic that you and your wife had such a fabulous time! Couldn't ask for a more well rounded experience than trying one of each of our tours. You must have really had a great time judging from all of your exclamation points, and I hope to see you both out here again in the future!!
