Took our family on the two-hour tour on the Waccamaw River. My wife and daughters did the standup paddleboards, I did the kayak. Scenery was awesome and didn't see any Gators. And it's all going with the flow down river. Would definitely do again.

I paid $40 for one tandem kayak for a 2 hours. It was not a guided tour although the guide set us up and took us out of the water when we finished. We received a map and floated around on our own.
