About Waccamaw River Tours
We do Nature & Wildlife Boat Tours on the rivers and creeks of the Waccamaw River and Intrcoastal Waterway. It is a beautiful, moss draped river system along the untouched National Wildlife Refuge. We hope to see alligator, osprey, turtles, heron, egrets and whatever Mother Nature wants to reveal for the day. This is a narrated 1.5hr boat tour. It is an educational, historical and adventurous experience. You will check-in at the gift shop/education station. There are games and chairs on the property on the river for you to enjoy while you wait to board the boat. Grab a cold drink, chips or ice cream at the Gift Shop/Snack bar. You will enter the same road as the Waccatee Zoo and follow the Waccamaw River Tours signs to the back of the property along the river. We have our own parking area here, so come join us for a Nature & Wildlife river adventure. You may walk-up but be aware seats may not be available. We also have Private Nature & Wildlife boat tours for small or large groups.

Our family came from California and absolutely loved the boat cruise. We counted 17 alligators, many turtles and cool birds. The people who run the cruise are super nice and very informational.
