Owner description: Outstanding river tour of the local Conway, SC (near Myrtle Beach) Waccamaw River area. Comfortable electric boat (no background noise), good tour guide, several tours/day and very reasonably priced for a 2 hour tour. A great activity for a visit to the Myrtle Beach SC area.
Reviewed 22 January 2014

our group ( 7 people ) were not expecting much for $15 per person & under 12- $10. Wow, were we surprised. We boarded a small battery powered boat that held12-14 people & our excursion through the inlets & coves began. Capt. Jims bubbly spirit & knowledge of the area he grew up in was infectious. Listening to him speak, you almost felt like you grew up there. 1.5-2 hrs. is a perfect amt. of time to spend, maybe leaving you wishing it was a little longer. I HIGHLY recommend this tour to everybody. Our family is returning Mid- Sept this year & We will take this tour again .
2 tips:1 - By Buying The Myrtle Beach Discount Card ( $20 for the year ) You save $5 per COUPLE on Capt. Jims tour. card also saves on many restaurants & attractions also ( complete list on site )
2- make reservations as first come, first serve is the rule. Several people were turned away as the boat was fully sold ( remember, only holds12-14 )

Loved this tour! Captain Jim obviously loves his town and what he does. This shows in the time he took to tell the history of the town and give his side of growing up there. Loved the stories and the boat was quiet and very easy to hear what he was saying. A great value for the money too!

This was one of the most enjoyable trips we have taken when visiting the Grand Strand area!!! Capt. Jim is very personable and extremely knowledgeable on the history of Conway and the Wacamaw River. As a life-long resident of North & South Carolina, I was surprised at the things I did not know about Conway & the Wacamaw River! The river boat is all electric and was so very quite, you could barely hear the hum of the electric motor. The scenery is absolutely gorgeous!!! The trip is very laid back. It was an extremely delightful way to spend a sunny afternoon in the Grand Strand area. We highly recommend it!
