Recently took a girls weekend getaway trip to Beaufort and took a kayaking excursion with The Kayak Farm. Eric was great! He was incredibly patient with my two friends who had no idea what they were doing, but also very informative and entertaining as he shared stories of kayaking and the low country. Dolphins swam nearby and the weather was... More

We rented a kayak for a day and took off from Russ Point. Eric was wonderful to deal with. We've never seen so many different types of wildlife up close at one time. We felt like we had the Low County all to ourselves. It's possible we weren't supposed to go up the Hunting Island Lagoon, but we did and... More

Eric graciously guided the two of us out into the inlet and through the marshes. He knew right where the Dolphins were playing, and we floated within yards of them. Eric shared his knowledge of the flora & fauna & the ecological systems all around us. We didn't see an abundance of wildlife, but we sure enjoyed the beautiful day... More

Eric was amazing! We had three adults with 8 year olds riding tandem and an 11 year old in his own kayak. Eric was very patient and encouraging to all of us. We had never kayaked and he made our first experience a great one. He gave us a guided tour of the area and was amazingly knowledgable. He knew... More

Eric is the owner/operator of this company outside of Beaufort, SC. We had found him on a trip advisor review. He was professional, easy to work with. He made sure we were comfortable with the tandem kayak before turning us loose in the Fripp Inlet. He provided all the equipment (which was top notch). Gave us a map, made suggestions... More

Found this tour on Google. From the start Eric, the owner and our guide, was very friendly and knowledgeable. We set tour up via text messages and he was very responsive and helpful. This tour was very reasonably priced compared to others in the area, especially since we were the only ones on this tour. Eric met us at launch... More

Eric was a terrific, informed, and patient guide. 4 of 5 of us had never been in a kayak, but Eric put us at ease. Our tour was during low tide, so we were able to kayak through the tranquil marsh. Lovely to disconnect for a while from technology with our teens!

I VERY much enjoyed our kayak tour. WE got to see a LOT of dolphins and they came very close to our kayak. Eric was a great guide and knew exactly where to find them in their natural habitat. I truly believe this day will never be forgotten and one of the coolest things I've ever experienced.

Eric was a great guy!! He was very helpful and knowledgeable. Be prepared for a workout. I have been battling a strained lower back so we had to cut our trip a little short. We got in at Ross Point and ventured out for a couple hours. We saw some dolphins and a lot of pretty shore birds.

My husband and I rented kayaks from Eric for 4 hours on a Sunday. We have both kayaked before so Eric didn't have to explain too much, but he made sure to give us a map and point out some areas where we might see wildlife. We saw lots of dolphins and birds and overall had a wonderful experience. We... More
