My family of 7 thoroughly enjoyed our guided canoe trip on the Black River! We did the early morning trip to avoid hot weather and we are glad we made that choice! The guide was very courteous, attentive and knowledgeable about the bird, plant and animals in the area. He helped us with our life jackets, entering and exiting our... More

Our guide, Mandy, took three middle aged women on a kayak trip in early November. She made us feel comfortable and safe, and kept us entertained and informed. I recommend this trip, and this outfitter, for everyone of every age.

This was our second kayaking tour and we absolutely love Black River Outdoors! Richard was our incredibly knowledgeable guide this year (Paul and Mandy were equally excellent last year) and he made this tour the highlight of our beach trip. My son, who is 10, is already planning future tours with them for the next 2 years! Thanks for another... More

Black River made it easy to order kayaks to be delivered and picked up at our rental property. Life preservers and oars provided, of course.

Our guide was Mandy and she was great. We went out on a beatiful fall day in late October in a tandem kayak and were the only ones on the trip other than Mandy so she was able to taylor the trip to our liking. She enlightened us on the history of the area as well as the ecology. Well... More

Enjoyed a leisurely paddle on a wide black water creek in a cypress swamp on the Waccamaw River, guided by Mandy, who is VERY knowledgeable about the swamp and its residents, as well as the history of the Georgetown area. I'll return in the spring for another tour, once Sandy Island is accessible again (Hurricane Matthew did some damage there.).... More
