Chris was great on the phone ahead of scheduling the trip - got us hooked up with tour the next day as we were using our own equipment. He met us promptly, is knowledgeable about the river, and took us on a great float! He was paying close attention to us as well as any wildlife we might encounter - so was able to point out a few alligators so we didn't miss them! He took pictures during the float and sent them to us later. Chris offered information on other places we might put our boats in and said to give him a call if we needed anything - much appreciated! Hightly recommend Gator Baid Adventure Tours!

We had a great experience with Jane and Chris on our river tour. They are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Very pleased with their communication prior to the tour and during. We booked the first tour of the season and it was a cold one! They made sure to reach out to us and confirm that we were still coming and offered alternatives to meet our needs if necessary. They kindly moved the tour ahead by one hour to allow for the temperature to improve. Chris and Jane were thoughtful and well prepared. They brought along water and snacks in the event that we forgot our own or ran out.
I would highly recommend Gaiter Bait Adventure Tours to anyone visiting the Myrtle Beach area.

If I could give more than 5 stars I would! Chris and Jane were THE BEST. We had never gone kayaking before as a family (kids ages 14,13,11). I am a nervous person by nature, put my kids in a kayak on their own, and I am on edge. Jane and Chris are very knowledgeable, obviously love what they do, and within 30 minutes of us paddling around and getting used to maneuvering, it was smooth sailing. They were so easy to talk to, incredibly friendly, filled with great info about the waters/wildlife/history, very relaxed couple. They put this Momma's mind at ease and I was able to really enjoy our adventure. We'd all come back and do it again!

Take a break from the beach and experience a beautiful sunset to the tune of tree frogs! Jane and Chris provided a relaxing and safe 2.5 hour sunset paddle through the refuge. The tide was unusually low for our visit revealing hidden stumps and tree roots typically hidden by the tea colored water. We saw several gators, birds, flowers, spiders, turtles and even picked some fresh huckleberries. Jane and Chris have been navigating the waterway for 20 years, they have eyes and ears tuned in to the life of the swamp. I highly recommend this tour for paddlers of all ages and skill levels. Wear shoes that can get muddy/wet and watch for jumping fish that might try and catch a ride on your boat!

Jane and Chris were wonderful guides! It was a bit chilly for our 10am start, so they called in the morning and offered to move it back an hour. They were very knowledgeable about the wildlife and conservation in the area. We felt very safe with them as we navigated some of the more gator-prone areas of the river. They also had many recommendations for other things to do in SC & NC. This was our favorite part of the trip - would highly recommend!

My husband and I were in the area and Gator Bait Tours made this adventure a very special one for us. We took a private tour, learned so much about the history of the area, and enjoyed our first time kayaking. I especially loved the special photos they took and sent to us. They made for great memories. I would highly recommend this for anyone interested in kayaking or seeing the area away from the beach.

I booked a tour for myself, my father, and my two children (10 & 12). It was a truly amazing experience. Chris was a wonderful, patient, and very accommodating guide. He went above and beyond to make the tour a memorable and enjoyable experience for 4 novice kayakers. We will definitely be back to do this tour again.

I cannot say enough good things about this kayaking trip. There were four of us: Two Moms and Two Teens. Chris and Jane made us feel like family. We went at a pace that was good for all of us, and Chris and Jane pointed out wildlife, trees, and plants and answered all our questions. They really engaged each one of us as individuals, which is not always easy to do with teens. They also took photos of us so we could all be in the pictures--at no charge! We all thought this kayak trip was a 5 out of 5 experience, even the teens said it was one of the favorite activities on our vacation.

Jane and Chris are wonderful and compassionate guides. They pointed out every bird, turtle, spider and gator along the paddle. They were excellent with new and experienced paddlers alike and took great photos of my family that we will cherish forever. My favorite part was when we stopped at a sandy beach and they showed us the newly formed ground. Highly recommended!

Today was one of the best afternoons I have ever spent in my many years of visiting Myrtle Beach. I was privileged to go on a Kayak tour at the Waccamaw Refuge Center with the Gator Bait Adventure Tours.

Jane and Chris provided excellent information and tips for viewing the wildlife on this tour. The kayaks were in excellent condition and they were so helpful with every little detail.

Mother Nature provided a day that was about as good as it gets....warm but not too hot, very light breeze, water that looked like glass. We were fortunate to see turtles, various birds and a very good sized alligator sunning itself along the shore.

Couldn't recognize this friendly and very knowledgeable couple for a great outdoor activity in the great outdoors!
