Marsh Kayaking Tours

This two-hour kayaking tour is paced for intermediate, novice and younger paddlers alike. It’s an easy moving trip will take you through the maze of tidal creeks that wrap around uninhabited hammock islands. An experienced local guide will lead you and the group through these beautiful coastal waterways, taking time to talk about the natural surroundings. Marsh tours provide the chance to see:

  • Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphin
  • Loggerhead Sea Turtles
  • American Wood Storks
  • Oysters
  • Local Waterfowl

The Marsh Kayaking Tours are available throughout the day during the summer months. Reservations must be made at least 2 hours in advance in order to secure your boats.

They suggest booking the morning tour for cooler air and glassier waters during the heat of the summer.

If a more adventurous tour is what you would like, our 3-hour Marsh Kayak Tour would be perfect for you! And if you’re looking for a later trip check out our Twilight Kayak Tour.

Paddle Board Tours

On the two hour Stand Up Paddleboarding tour you’ll be able to explore the maze of tidal creeks and marshes found throughout the Lowcountry. The perspective from a stand up paddle board allows you to see deeper into the spartina grass where wildlife may be hiding. This tour is perfect for adults and young adults alike and they promise: SUP is not as hard as it looks. Join one of our experienced guides as we explore the saltwater estuaries of Folly Beach atop one of our state-of-the-art SUP. Our paddle boarding tours are great for all levels, from beginners to the most experienced paddlers. After getting geared up and receiving on-land instruction, one of their seasoned guides will take you on the experience of a lifetime. You’ll have the opportunity to see many native species such as atlantic bottlenose dolphins, loggerhead sea turtles, osprey, oysters and a variety of other wildlife.

“We had a great time. Our guide, Cabe, was extremely knowledgeable. He mentioned he sometimes feels like he talks a little too much as he wants to provide a lot of info on the tour and justify “getting paid to kayak all day”. I’d agree. He could have taken a few breaks and just let us enjoy the kayaking and the waterways. But he knew some really interesting facts and is a smart guy… so it was overall a great time. We will be back and we will recommend this to others.”  ★★★★★

“My husband and I had the best experience ever with the captain this morning going out by the lighthouse and walking the island. There were many dolphin sightings along our way and we got tons of fascinating information. Such a memorable part of our trip. Highly recommend this trip as we will be coming back soon and bringing more family! This is a crucial part to your South Carolina adventure and will have you wanting to come back.” ★★★★★
