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.

Two hours of history and wonderful time on the water. Captain Jim is very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor. Love the side stories and the trip down the creek.

Captain Jim’s river tour was terrific. His quiet electric boat was perfect for this informative view of the Conway riverfront with its rich southern history.
