Love it

I like the two hour tour. It was fun and I felt comfortable kayaking with our tour guide. We did it in the afternoon/evening hours, it was busy, lots of boats.

We took the sunrise tour and it was beautiful. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the area and the sea life and birds. He did move a little fast for a beginner but overall a amazing experience.

My group of 7 rented kayaks for a half day at a reasonable price and paddled out to the bay, although one could go up Shem Creek instead. Paddling was easy enough, although there is enough wave action in the bay to make the going a bit rough and wet. Nice view of downtown Charleston and a small island bird... More

We kayaked with Teresa on the Wambaw 3 hour creek tour. Excellent trip and Teresa was a fabulous guide. She shared a lot of nature/animal information and she was very personable with the ability to chat easily with everyone. It started pouring rain half-way thru the trip and she was very calm and even sang a song to make us... More

We had a great time kayaking. Guided tour helped us see a lot of nature including dolphins. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable in the history and ecology of the area.

A lot of people checking in at the same time. Somewhat unorganized. Guides seemed to be overwhelmed with the amount of people booked on the tours; even though ours had 8 people. With the disorganization, our tour left a half hour late. (they were able to accommodate the whole two hours though). Shem Creek is an inlet for boats to... More

Our 10 year old daughter has been out with Nature Outfitters twice to learn to paddle board and kayak. She has loved it both times and the team takes time to teach the kids how to do both as well as show them the nature around them. Great group of people to go out with!

We've been out with NAO twice, both times to the blackwater swamp kayak tour up at Wambaw Creek. The last time was last month with an out of town guest. It was rather a last minute decision (the day before) to go and there were just 3 of us, but I called the office, they checked with the guide who... More

We just returned from the Sewee Indian Ceremonial Shell Ring Historic Site and had an amazing time. Teresa was fantastic and full of knowledge. She was very thorough during the safety and instruction portion for my 3 daughters (all under 11). She spent lots of time explaining the different types of shells and ancient pottery to us. The company itself... More

Casual kayaking through the natural beauty of Wambaw Creek. Our guide, Ryan, was fantastic...straight away it felt like we'd known him for years. Would recommend this excursion for anyone looking to break away from the beach for a few hours. Saw a sampling of local wildlife, including a few gators, one up close and personal. My kids (17 & 20)... More
