The Carolina Waterman is a local nonprofit organization which organized for the purpose of offering free waterman programs to Horry County Residents.

In order to help fund our mission we self generate funds by charging non-residents for one of a kind waterman experiences around Myrtle Beach.

Whether you are looking for a calm and relaxing tour of our Waccamaw National Wildlife Refuge or interested in a gnarly day of learning how to surf in Myrtle Beach... The Carolina Waterman is the place for you.

By supporting the Carolina Waterman you are supporting the growth of a healthy and responsible "waterman" community along the Grand Strand.

This fall the Carolina Waterman will be launching a FREE local after school waterman program for a limited number of Horry County 9th Graders.

Please follow the Carolina Waterman, share our stoke, and come out for an unforgettable experience!

What an amazing experience. As first time paddlers, Trent and Megan took their time and had us up and running in no time. With an one-on-one ratio, my wife's nervousness was decreased and she was able to enjoy the experience without others watching! Trent's knowledge of the Waccamaw River and wildlife was an added bonus. The Osprey sighting was an... More

This was a great way to learn how to SUP. Beautiful, serene wildlife preserve with calm water. Trent was very passionate about preserving the refuge and explained the ecosystem in detail. There is absolutely no stress involved when being instructed how to get up on the board and paddle. I was even given a ride back to Myrtle Beach which... More

Just have other's commented this was an awesome experience. Trent is very knowledgeable on both paddle boarding and the ecology of the area. Everyone was standing on their boards within 5 minutes and we had a great paddle with no incident. It was lots of fun and educational.
