This was our second trip with J & L kayaking, and there will be many more to come. We were fortnuate to have the owners as our guides for this sunset kayak trip. It was such a relaxing, peaceful and enjoyable trip. The guides were very engaging to answer questions and to tell you facts of nature. It was me and my 15 year old son, who enjoyed it as much as I did. The laterns that they put on our kayaks as the sun went down just added so much to the trip. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this company to any locals or visitors that come to our area.

Kat was a top notch guide, giving the perfect amount of informative and fun. She made sure everyone felt confident in their kayaking abilities as she led us in, out, and around the marsh grasses. We raced the tide dropping as we explored (safely) oyster beds, birds, fish, and other wildlife. The sunset ended with the fun addition of colorful lanterns as we paddled back to the boat ramp. I highly recommend this tour if you are on vacation and looking for a safe socially-distanced activity.

My husband, daughter, and I did the Marsh Sunset Tour tonight. Justin was our guide and was awesome! He took the time to learn all of our names, interact with every person in the group and take numerous photos during the tour that he shared with us after we were back on land. We all felt safe and comfortable navigating our way, and Justin helped us if we needed a bit of help. The tour was 1.5 hours long, and it was the perfect amount of time for us for this excursion. The lanterns that Justin put on each of our boats as the sun was setting were really beautiful. We would highly recommend this experience, and we will be back with other family members in the future!

We completed a Marsh Maze Twilight Tour in early March with Justin as our guide and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The pace was relaxing and comfortable with plenty of time to enjoy the scenery while chatting with Justin and the other kayakers.

With a seamless reservation process and a superb customer experience overall, this company gets full marks for doing things right. Well done, guys!

Booked a last minute kayak and crabbing tour and it was an experience of a lifetime for my family. Neither myself, my husband or two boys have ever gone kayaking or crabbing but from start to finish J and L Kayaks have been professional and personable. Laurie patiently booked a trip for us despite my millions of questions, Alex our tour guide was also so helpful and made us feel comfortable on the water. The crabbing was the most fun we had as a family in long while. To top it off, my teenage son lost his phone after taking pictures on the kayak. Somehow miraculously a kayaker on the next tour found the phone and the tour company quickly contacted us to retrieve the phone. In all, I totally understand the almost perfect reviews. J and L Kayaks go above and beyond to make your experience memorable and enjoyable.

Our famlly of 6 enjoyed the marsh at sunset tour. Our guides were helpful, and provided information about the waterways, marine life, birds, etc. It was especially beautiful as the sun went down and each kayak had a colorful lantern on the bow. Our grandchildren (ages 10 & 12) had limited kayak experience, but they enjoyed being "first mates" in the tandem kayaks and were able to paddle and help guide their boats. A fun family experience!

They are the real deal, so professional, and extremely knowledgeable when it comes to everything kayaking and the places you kayak. We hit some stormy weather while we were out so we wanted to cut our tour 10 minutes short and Justin knew exact places he could take us in order to get us out of the marsh quickly and safely and Laurie came to drive us back to where we parked. They are so professional at what they do and we were glad we chose them because it could have been a dangerous situation if we were with guides who weren't equipped to handle any situation that could arise. We also loved that Justin was genuine, it was like kayaking with a good friend, he took some awesome pictures of us (that he airdropped to us for free, some companies charge for this!) and told us all about the different birds in the marsh (we love learning about all the eco stuff and he knew so much about the marsh so we picked his brain, I am sure if you want to just relax and kayak without talking so much you could do that too, its really whatever you want to make of it!). Also this is the perfect guided tour if you are a beginner or have never kayaked before. There is a boat launch so it was super easy to get in and out of the water. My husband and I rented kayaks on murrell's inlet (a different marsh further south) a few days later and the only way you could get in or out of your kayak there was on a dock, this is much more difficult, especially if you've never kayaked before. I add that detail just to emphasize even more why J and L stand out above the rest, you won't have to worry about anything with them even if its your first time. Even though the weather turned sour quick on us kayaking with them was one of the highlights of our trip and we cannot wait to return and see them again. Thanks Justin and Laurie!!

We booked a twilight kayaking trip with J & L Kayaks for a different kayaking experience and they did not disappoint. Even with a down pour of rain and then a storm towards the end, we still had a blast. Nick our tour guide was a super guy and made our trip the best he could with the rain and lighting making our trip back difficult. We would and will book with J & L Kayaks tours again.

Our family decided to do something we had never done on a beach vacation. I found J&L online and read the reviews and loved the descriptions of the tours on their website. The price was reasonable. So, I booked our trip for the twilight tour.
We received emails almost immediately regarding how to meet up, sign waivers, etc. (Very well organized)
On the day of the tour, we met Justin at the dock. He was friendly, easy to talk to, and clearly excited to be doing this tour with us. Our tour began on time, after Justin gave us an overview of safety and how to navigate our kayaks. We had a blast! Justin did a great job helping us if we needed it. He was confident in where we were going and that we could navigate the waters even if we had never kayaked before. He pointed out birds and such as we went along. He took pictures all through the trip, and air dropped them to us when we returned to the dock.
We are definitely going to book again when we come back to Myrtle Beach.
Justin, thank you so much for a real highlight to our trip! See you again soon! Amanda, Jerry, and Robyn

Great time! We took our 12 and 9 year olds for a crabbing kayak trip. It was honestly more exciting for them than the deep sea fishing trip we took, and about 1/3 of the cost. We caught maybe 40 crabs, and were able to keep 18 due to size requirements. Riley, our guide, was awesome. He was great with kids, super knowledgeable, and he did all of the dirty work. No room for improvement!
