Overview
This kayaking tour from Charleston is an ideal way to get out of the city and explore Lowcountry marshes. See the area’s famous sweetgrass and pluff mudd as you leisurely maneuver through a saltwater estuary, home to wildlife such as dolphins, pelicans, and loggerhead turtles. Your guide helps you spot the animals and leads you on a safe, fun, and easy route through tidal creeks.
What to Expect
After you arrive at your private launching area on Bowens Island, your guide reviews tips for a safe and fun kayaking trip through Charleston’s tidal marshes and gets you comfortable with the equipment. The foot-driven steering system on these kayaks is easy to use.

Then, head out on the water. Paddle through quiet creeks and Lowcountry marshes, looking out for wildlife such as dolphins, aquatic birds, and other animals that call this saltwater estuary home. Your guide helps you find the wildlife and answers any questions you have about the area. Because this is a small-group tour, your guide can give every member of the group attention with ease. Must be 13 to operate a single kayak.

Your tour concludes back at the dock.

What a great time we had

We did the two hour kayaking tour with Cade. He was extremely helpful and patient with us. He shared a ton of information concerning the eco system and wildlife. We saw so many wild dolphins while we paddled along.
