I went to River Island Adventures with two friends of mine, and we camped in the wooded area, went to the smore's event and completed the escape river island challenge. As female travelers all under the age of 20, we were all a little nervous about safety. However, Jeff and his family made us feel super safe and invited the entire time! Highly recommend this place and plan on coming back next spring to camp on the island!

Jeff is a visionary; he has made such a special outdoor getaway in an unlikely place. Location is fantastic, removed from the chaos of the Grand Strand, yet close enough to get a nice dinner after your adventures. There is an impressive variety of activities and amenities on site, truly something for everyone! The Survivor challenge on the private island is #1 for a reason - totally unique and authentic. If you love the reality show, try your hand at the River Island rendition! Have fun, go play outside!

We all had a blast, including our teenager! There were 3 of us, so the owner recruited an employee to join us so we could have 2 teams. The challenges were equal part physical and mental, but nothing too strenuous, although we got a good workout on the kayak back to "base camp." This was our favorite thing to do around Myrtle Beach. Highly recommend!

Had a such fun and unique date night at this event! We felt right at home w the staff: Jeff, Cherish, Mike, and Christian are super friendly and knowledgeable. The paddle itself was sooo relaxing and beautiful. The set up at the outpost as well as the island is so thoughtfully put together, and we are excited to see Jeff’s future visions come to life! Will def be back to camp soon and spent more time! Thanks for an evening we can’t stop talking about :)

We had such a good time doing the Survivor style adventure. It was such a fun experience. You are broken up into teams of two and have to do a few survivor style challenges and then it’s a kayak race back to the starting point. We were a family of 4 and even our teenagers had a great time.

We bought a day pass and did the tubing trip, the kayaking trip, played on the water pads, and played big Jenga and yard games. The staff is wonderful. We had a great time. One suggestion I have- the tubing trip is only 20-30 mins long and then you take a pontoon boat back, so don’t waste your money on a cooler tube. The tubes have cup holders, so just take a drink or two with you and save the $10 on the cooler tube. Altogether, great trip and I definitely recommend.

This place is a gem. An escape oasis from Myrtle Beach crazy.
For one price, you get wonderful hosts, all the kayaking, standup paddle board, tubing time you want. Lawn games available, fun to play with family. I actually fell asleep in a hammock. The price is very fair (coupon in Monster book) compared to other kayak tours in the area. Not crowded at all (Wednesday). The island is very cool- excited to come back in the future when they expand their activities.

Five of us took the pontoon boat ride around the Escape Island while our guide told us about the history, nature, and future plans for the island. It was so beautiful and quiet. The trip included a van ride from our hotel and box lunch from McAlister's, which was very good.

I have never written a review on Trip Advisor before but had such a blast, had to share! My family has really gotten into the escape room experiences and my husband found this on Groupon and felt like it would add a great element to be out in nature trying to “escape”. What a great experience! We were there during the hottest weekend of summer so far with crazy heat indexes. Jeff and his staff made sure that we were safe and comfortable and monitored us the whole adventure. Challenges were fun and not too difficult physically. Being surrounded by nature instead of the congestion and bustle of Myrtle Beach was such a nice reprieve. I highly recommend this activity and we are looking forward to other adventures that Jeff and his team are working on. We had such a good time, my husband and Jeff sat and discussed all of the different group and team building activities that we could sign up for...I don’t know if my husband will ever go back to regular beach/vacation stuff! I’m sure we’ll be back again and again and can’t wait to see what they have in store for the future.

After waiting on hold for 16 minutes I called back and was again put on hold for another 12 until I hung up. Finally my wife and I went to the location and were ignored for some time. We waited in the rain until our guide rushed through the introduction speech and pushed us out onto the water. We asked about the storm, and were told that it would be okay. Unfortunately the storm got worse, the guide lost track of us and my wife and i had a miserable time.

We don't have a phone system that allows us to put a phone call on hold nor have we taken any kayak tours out while it was raining this summer so I believe you might be mistaken in the adventure outfitter that you visited. This is my first year in business and I have really enjoyed personally greeting each of my customers as they arrive at our Outpost and we have never lost track of any of our guests. I am sorry to hear you had a bad experience with a river adventure outfitter but I can promise you that if you and your wife will come visit us I will personally make certain you have an exceptional experience as described by all of wonderful reviews.
