beautiful trip up and down Wambaw Creek. Johnny and Matt (?) were helpful, friendly and very open to any questions. Everyone should see 1000 year old trees!

We spent 3 hours tandem kayaking at a leisurely pace. The scenery and nature viewing were superb. Matt was an excellent guide: polite, friendly and knowledgeable. He provided many details about the ecosystem, history and wildlife of the region. He also shared several stories of historical and civic interest, and was open to any questions. We highly recommend him.

My husband and I are local to Charleston and have been kayaking once before (about 6 years ago) on Folly Beach. We wanted to try a different setting this time and really enjoyed the tour on Shem Creek. It was fun to paddle in the open water around the bird island, but my favorite part was going back up into...

Unfortunately there was a really high tide the day we rented SUPs, but we absolutely loved our guide, Kent. Cute area with several bars/restaurants within walking distance. VERY reasonably priced. Recommend happy hour at the Shem Creek Inn.

We had a lovely time on the Picnic and Paddle trip with our guide, Matt. He was very knowledgeable of not only the Charleston area and marine life, but also the area history, the ecosystem, paddling, and college football!

We took the sunrise tour and it was beautiful. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the area and the sea life and birds. He did move a little fast for a beginner but overall a amazing experience.

My group of 7 rented kayaks for a half day at a reasonable price and paddled out to the bay, although one could go up Shem Creek instead. Paddling was easy enough, although there is enough wave action in the bay to make the going a bit rough and wet. Nice view of downtown Charleston and a small island bird... More
