Beaufort Kayak Tours is a great outfit. Walker was our guide and he was incredibly knowledgable about the area, upbeat and provided a safe, fun experience. The equipment is nice and they have a cool laucning pad to get you in the water without turtling. A kayaker if any skill level would enjoy this trip. It was fun to explore around the bay, inlets and sand bars. I would absolutely go again.,

Gorgeous, cool day with high water in Ebenezer Creek. We've been with BKT many times. Never tire of the beauty and mystery of this black water. Reflections were particularly nice as we paddled amongst the trees in high water.

My experience with Beaufort Kayak Tours, and the owners Jim and Teri, was nothing short of perfect. I am a professional kayak guide, with over a decade of experience guiding kayak tours all over the world, so I have extremely high expectations of an outfitter. Jim and Beaufort Kayak Tours exceeded those expectations at every opportunity. I wanted to rent a kayak for two days and explore the area around Hunting Island State Park. As an experienced paddler I didn't feel the need for a guide, but I needed a kayak with all the necessary gear and was hoping for some expert local advice. Jim went so far above and beyond what I had hoped for or expected. He met me at a convenient time and location for me, with the kayak and all the gear I needed, plus what I needed to transport the boat. Everything was of high quality and in great condition (especially considering how affordable the two day rental was). After getting me all set with the gear Jim spent the better part of an hour going over all the different places I could paddle. His expertise in the area and his passion for sharing this activity that he so clearly loves with others was inspiring to see. He pulled out multiple maps, looked up tidal charts, checked weather forecasts, showed me multiple float plans to take advantage the conditions, and in general set me up perfectly for an amazing time on the water. I was able to do some awesome kayak fishing, explore the area with comfort and confidence, and even have some remarkable interactions with dolphins and sea turtles. We were met at the boat landing at a time of our choosing to return the gear, and Teri even got some awesome pictures of us paddling in at sunset. Next time I'm planning to book a tour, not because I feel that I need a guide to be safe, but because I would love to spend some time on the water with someone as enthusiastic, passionate, and knowledgeable as Jim.

We had a fantastic experience with Jim and Terry as we paddled up the Ashepoo River to Horseshoe Creek on a gorgeous day. They were fabulous, giving us lots of interesting history of the area as well as wildlife sitings along the way. They made the day so much fun for all of us. I highly recommend them.
