    I was on vacation with my 13 year old and she wanted to SUP since she was doing it back home all summer. We booked a tour with Luke. He was awesome. Great personality, very knowledgeable about the river beds and river life. I actually learned about oysters and how they filter

    Have experienced two tours with Charleston SUP in Folly beach. Both have been excellent. This time we made it to the Sand bar and were able to experience a group of dolphins strand feeding 15 feet away from us. The entire family had a blast!

    Aloha Christie, Thanks for your kind words and positive review. You did great on your first tour! We always enjoy coaching our new clients through the learning curve on SUP so you get to have FUN! I love teaching SUP to everyone who comes out with SUP Safaris, and that's why I started the company 8 years ago! Your review made my whole summer! Please come back and SUP with us the next time y'all are in town. Big Jon

    We had a great time with Phil and Al. They were super knowledgeable about the waterways, ecosystem and the wildlife. One of the younger folks on our tour had a difficult time paddling and one of the guides towed them and did so with a smile. Good times, good people AND oh
