I tried calling multiple times to confirm my booking and the location on the day before, and the day of the tour. I also drove... More

This was a wonderful day of exploring and learning about SC wildlife. Our guide Richard was super knowledgeable with an amazing ability to spot wildlife. He could identify a bird with only a fraction of a glimpse. Saw many birds: 4 types of woodpeckers, osprey... very fun! Thanks to Richard for such a great afternoon!

This was my first time kayaking while my bf had done it before. It was wonderful. Our guide was so sweet and had gloves and pants for us so we wouldn't get wet. She was knowledgable and very patient. I just wanted to go fast once I figured out how to paddle lol. Overall a very peaceful and educational experience... More

This was a perfect kayak tour with knowledgeable guides and plenty of wildlife sightings - even dolphins! The tour winds through the salt marsh and ended up at Huntington Beach Sate Park before we returned to out starting point. The guide was an expert on wildlife, plants, and the entire ecosystem. Even though it was a little cold in early... More

Our EcoTours offer very different experiences in different seasons and at different tides. As you experiences, low tide can expose some very interesting creatures. I look forward to taking you out to see the Cypress Swamps in "The Wild Side of Myrtle Beach - Richard". More

We had a great time with Richard on our Cyprus Swamp 2 hour tour. Richard was very knowledgeable, and spotted tons of snakes and wildlife that we would have never seen on our own. He went above and beyond to give us a great tour.

Thanks for the kind review. That was a pretty awesome tour for me too. This was the first great snake tour of the year for me. The three rough green snakes in one tree was a new record for me. We saw twelve snakes and I lost count of the turtles. Next visit, you should definitely try the 4-hour tour... More

I'm glad you enjoyed your Kayak EcoTour! So many people miss out on the beauty of the Myrtle Beach area in winter. As you saw, if you take advantage of the warm days, it can be very rewarding. I hope you can find an opportunity to visit us in the spring to try the Cypress Swamp. The wildlife opportunities will... More
