Our "Two Hour SUP Lesson" is the only SUP lesson we offer during the summer season. From our experience over the past few years of exclusively running Standup Paddleboard Lessons there are a few things we've learned, first being that 1 hour is too short, and 3 hours is too long. We also found that almost 99% of first time paddlers, even people who don't even swim, were up and paddling their own board within 10 minutes. That is the reason we send a Tour Guide, not only do you have somebody showing you how to properly standup paddle, you also get your own nature guide! Our guides have over 500 hours combined guide experience, your SUP Lesson is also an Eco Tour. We know all about the local environment and wildlife, and our favorite part is teaching our customers about our Waccamaw National Wildlife Refuge. 27,000 acres of protected wetlands and the perfect place for your family to make memories. There is a reason we are one of the highest rated businesses in Myrtle Beach, every single one of our 230 reviews are in reference to our "2 Hour SUP Lesson"; so don't delay, book your tour today!

Prices are Per Ticket, all you need to do is show up and go for a paddle... we take care of everything else!

Be careful with businesses eager to rent you a SUP, or offering brief intro lessons with rentals if you have little/no prior experience... A quality lesson is strongly encouraged.

My wife, 2 daughters (10 &7) and I went paddle boarding with Carolina Waterman while on vacation in Myrtle Beach. I emphasize how great of an instructor Travis is. He spent extra time with my 2 girls to make sure they were safe and comfortable with paddle boarding. He went above an beyond. The 2 hour spend on the river... More

Truly excellent experience, my wife is 50 and I am 46 and we went with our 14 year old daughter for the first time doing SUP. We were literally standing up on the boards in the middle of the river within 5 minutes of getting on them. We were with another family of 4 and they also got up rather... More

This was a fabulous adventure & the whole family's favorite of our vacation. Don't miss this. Trent was wonderful. He is extremely knowledgeable about the environment, river, SUP sport and nature in general. He was so good w/our kids, especially our 9 year old son. I thought 1 1/2 hours on the river would be too long. It wasn't long... More

Awesome and the best money we spent on an activity our entire vacation. Beginners…Trent has you covered. You will not leave the water bank feeling unsafe and insecure. Take your family, young or old, and enjoy this 2 hour experience. I will book with Carolina Watermen if ever in MB again but will most definitely be paddle boarding again.

Can't say enough good things about this experience. Trent was fantastic when we called with questions, it was easy to set up and book online, he was fantastic with our kids from the moment we showed up throughout the entire trip. Trey gave a fantastic lesson about how to paddle, how to get back up on the board if you... More
