Had an awesome experience with Matt - knowledgeable and fun guide through the creek and stopped by Crab Bank to pick through fossils and shark teeth. Saw some dolphins playing and a bunch of different birds. Would highly recommend!

We had the best time on our 2 hour kayaking tour. Our guide was so knowledgeable about EVERYTHING! We got a lesson on the history of Charleston as well as the local wildlife. It was beautiful and we got to see some dolphins, egrets, spitting oysters and more. Fully recommend this tour!

We work with them every year during Beach Sweep - the national coastal clean up. They are so helpful and accommodating. They make sure that everyone is comfortable in a kayak - even the beginners - so that everyone has fun while they are out. Exploring the marsh is so much fun. And the kids love it. We come back every year and wouldn't think of going anywhere else. And Elizabeth rocks!

Had a group of 10 who were all interested in doing a morning kayak on a Saturday. I was a little late at the planning of this so the online tours were already full. I called the office and they were extremely accommodating by creating an earlier kayak outing just for our group! We met up with Matt who took us out on Shem Creek. He was highly informative about the marsh, marine life and birds. We learned about how the tide being high or low can affect so many things including hurricanes. This was the perfect way to start our Saturday! Thanks Matt for a wonderful and informative tour on the Creek.

Our kayak tour at Shem Creek was a highlight of our trip to Charleston. Matt, our guide, was very knowledgeable about the flora, fauna, and history of the area. We saw dolphins, sea turtles, and many types of sea birds. I highly recommend taking a kayak tour with Nature Adventures if you are in the Charleston area.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and the tour was cool kayaking under the trees and learning how the ecosystem in the creek works. Very relaxing and got to see dolphins along the way too!

We had a great day kayaking with our guide Sean. He was very knowledgeable about the marine plants, oysters, dolphins and the ecosystem itself. The time went by very quickly. The paddling was not too strenuous but some of the turns in the marsh were tight! A few dolphins jumped out of the water around us! It was a fun day on the water to be sure!

It was so lovely on the water and exploring the area of Shem Creek. Matt was a great guide and very patient as my daughter and I struggled in the 1st 10 minutes to figure out how to paddle (we were in a tandem kayak). Everyone associated with Nature Adventures was pleasant to deal with.
