    Best company ever! We have done multiple tours with Coastal Expeditions and have always been so impressed with the staffs knowledge of the low country and providing an educational experience for our family and friends while also making us laugh and feel at home. Even as a local to Charleston, we love the tours for an adventure filled day with our kiddos.

    This was such an awesome experience and our guide, Dan, was amazing! He was so informative and once we got further into the trail he let us lead the way so we could set the pace and see all of the wildlife. Definitely would recommend this tour!

    Absolutely wonderful experience. Luke was great. I would highly recommend this adventure. He not only was a great guide but very good teaching about the area.

    Fantastic Charleston boat tour! Have gone as a private couple harbor tour and also with our wedding party! The boat is fantastic. Super stable and comfortable with tons of space. Chad and his crew are able to handle large groups compared to most charters which I understand has something to do with their type of boat and local charter laws, so call them if you’re bringing friends! Capt. Chad and his team are the type of guys you’d invite if it were your own boat because they’re skilled and knowledgeable on where to go whether you want to paddle, see dolphins, tour historic sites, or beach party. Mostly they’re great hosts and fun to be around! Finding the boat and parking is always easy and our guests loved it too. Highly recommend!

    We were fortunate enough to be able to arrange an early morning paddle board tour in Folly Beach for our family group of 11 adults/young adults on relatively short notice (next day). Kyle was very accommodating and was quite welcoming upon our arrival. His friendly, encouraging, and outgoing personality put even the most hesitant persons in our group at ease before and during the paddle board experience. This excursion was a family vacation highlight. I would highly recommend for anyone looking to do a paddle board tour in Charleston to choose this company. I don't think that you will be disappointed.

    A very good time with a tandem kayak and a paddle board. We were able to see a few dolphins and all the paddling we wanted to do! We would do it again with these folks, very helpful

    We had a fantastic time paddle boarding with Ali! Our family of five, ages 11-50, had a fun time paddling. We did three paddleboards and one tandum kayak and it was a perfect combination. The older ones kayaked against the current and wind and the younger one was able to kayak back with the current and we all had a new experience. Ali was a great instructor and we would highly recommend this company. A storm was brewing during our first scheduled trip and Ali would not take any chances with our safety. He easily rescheduled our tour. Thankfully this happened early enough in our vacation so we had plenty of time to reschedule. He and his wife were helpful and friendly! Thanks!!!

    I rarely get around to writing a review. It needs to be an extraordinary experience. Breakthrough Paddle Company is such an experience. I found them on google and liked their options for four different launch sites. Breakthrough has a mobile truck and trailer with all amenities. When I called they suggested the best site based on weather and crowds. Most rental and tour places are in a fixed location. On my tour were several repeat customers who like the variation in sites, and Nick, the company owner. He is a lifelong sailor, surfer, paddler and waterman. He literally grew up aboard boats and boards with travels all over the world, but settled here after graduating from the College of Charleston. Nick is genuinely nice and caring about his customers. You could tell that he wants to make sure that you have a great time. His equipment is new and well maintained. He has all safety equipment and procedures. In summary, I was very impressed with Breakthrough Paddle Co. I will be back again! They offer tours, rentals, lessons and private functions.
