Plan Your Charleston Adventure

 

At Nature Adventures Outfitters, our entire focus is on giving you the best kayaking or paddleboarding experience that the waters near Charleston and the South Carolina coast have to offer. Whether you're staying at the Isle of Palms, Sullivan's Island, or Downtown Charleston, we have tours for every member of the family. Attractions include the barrier islands, blackwater swamps and rivers. Perfect for beginners (ages 4 and up welcome).

Our record on safety and our University Degreed / Master Naturalist Guides have given us a reputation as coastal South Carolina's most recommended and respected kayak guide service.
