Renting a single or tandem kayak is a great way to explore the tidal salt marsh of Shem Creek or explore any of the numerous waterways Charleston has to offer people looking for things to do. When you rent for a half day, 4 hours, you can explore the majority of Shem Creek, Bayview Creek and possibly get to and around Crab Bank Island at the mouth of the creek depending on the tide. Renting kayaks in Mount Pleasant is great for small and large groups alike. You can paddle a lot and cover lots of water or go where the winds and tide take you...but don't forget you'll have to fight them coming back.
