Our family had a terrific.time today on the river! My husband and I went tubing while our adult children rented a kayak and went paddle boarding. We took the pontoon boat to the island and ate our picnic lunch, lounged in hammocks and played cornhole and other beachside games. A perfect day with family without a cellphone in site!

Rafting down the river was quiet and relaxing. Then staff/owner picks you up on the pontoon boat and brings you back to start all over again. Unlimited trips down the river depending on the package you get. Island has tons of potential and owner has some great ideas & new things coming! The staff was fun, helpful (a bit hilarious). When we went the second time and the pontoon boat came to get us, we got stuck in one current and she got stuck in another current. My husband had to swim over and help her get out of the tree. That's where our adventure came in :D But beautiful location, scenery and so close to Myrtle Beach. Nice change from sitting on the beach - saw new things, met new people and had some laughs! Great experience and will definitely come back.

Short drive from Myrtle Beach into the country. Gets you out of the hectic touristy area and into nature. I went with my wife and two teens (15 and 19) for a half-day fun and relaxing day on the river. We tubed down the river and enjoyed the low-country river feel with the greenery. We brought our own music and just floated down the river with the JBL and a beer. At the pickup point we got swooped up by a pontoon and brought back up the river! Very enjoyable. After that we jumped on some paddle boards and a kayak and really took off. We went about a mile upstream really soaking it all in and floated back. We all had fun! The staff is really kind and professional. Maybe it’s that “southern charm”. The equipment was all in great condition and we’d definitely do it again on our next visit. ENJOY!
