Our "Two Hour SUP Lesson" is the only SUP lesson we offer during the summer season. From our experience over the past few years of exclusively running Standup Paddleboard Lessons there are a few things we've learned, first being that 1 hour is too short, and 3 hours is too long. We also found that almost 99% of first time paddlers, even people who don't even swim, were up and paddling their own board within 10 minutes. That is the reason we send a Tour Guide, not only do you have somebody showing you how to properly standup paddle, you also get your own nature guide! Our guides have over 500 hours combined guide experience, your SUP Lesson is also an Eco Tour. We know all about the local environment and wildlife, and our favorite part is teaching our customers about our Waccamaw National Wildlife Refuge. 27,000 acres of protected wetlands and the perfect place for your family to make memories. There is a reason we are one of the highest rated businesses in Myrtle Beach, every single one of our 230 reviews are in reference to our "2 Hour SUP Lesson"; so don't delay, book your tour today!

Prices are Per Ticket, all you need to do is show up and go for a paddle... we take care of everything else!

Be careful with businesses eager to rent you a SUP, or offering brief intro lessons with rentals if you have little/no prior experience... A quality lesson is strongly encouraged.

This was a great way to learn how to SUP. Beautiful, serene wildlife preserve with calm water. Trent was very passionate about preserving the refuge and explained the ecosystem in detail. There is absolutely no stress involved when being instructed how to get up on the board and paddle. I was even given a ride back to Myrtle Beach which... More

Just have other's commented this was an awesome experience. Trent is very knowledgeable on both paddle boarding and the ecology of the area. Everyone was standing on their boards within 5 minutes and we had a great paddle with no incident. It was lots of fun and educational.

First off I want to say that we did have a great first paddle boarding experience with Trent. I stand by my original review from June in which we researched several different companies saw that Carolina Waterman looked like the best of the bunch. Other companies just spend a few minutes with you and then send you off on your... More

Tour Photos are never "included" in the price of our SUP tours. We send photos free of charge as a thank you to our customers while everyone else in town is charging arms and legs, if they bother sending a guide with you that takes pictures to begin with... We apologize for somehow missing you when we sat down to... More

My wife and 2 children (age 9 and 6) were interested in doing some sort of water activity during our vacation and Stand Up Paddleboarding seemed fun. We thought it would just be a teaching lesson and then we would practice a bit in the middle of a lake and call it a day. But actually after we practiced a... More

It was our first time paddle boarding, and we had a great time! Trent did a great job explaining everything and you can tell he is really passionate about what he does. Would definitely do again.

Our family had an awesome time with Trent at Waccamaw. There were 6 of us and none of us had paddle boarded before. Trent is an excellent instructor and got us all up and running safely and in very little time. He is clearly very passionate both about paddleboarding, and also about the environment as well and is a wealth... More
