Blackwater Tours

Just 35-50 minutes from Charleston you can explore cool and shaded blackwater swamps, rivers and historic rice plantations. Paddle through a flooded forest in a protected wilderness area in the National Forest and see 1,000 year old cypress trees or see a 300 year old church overlooking thousands of acres of rice fields where eagles nest, full of wetland wildflowers. Wildlife includes the shy and elusive alligator, turtles, wetland wading birds, woodpeckers and sometimes river otters!

Saltwater Tours

Just 3 minutes to 35 minutes surrounding Charleston, the saltwater tours include a variety of habitats that include shallow bays with historic harbor views, sandy beaches with barrier islands, or saltwater marsh creeks. Paddle to 4,000 year old Indian ruins in the National Forest and journey back in time! Wildlife includes dolphin and nesting colonies of thousands of Eastern Shorebirds. Manatees and Sea Turtles are seasonal and are seen about 10-20% of the time during summer months. Our Shem Creek & Crab Bank Island tour has the most wildlife and chance for seeing dolphin, but you’re welcome to also explore the waters surrounding the Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge just up the coast.
