Paddling is a Lowcountry “must do,” whether its by kayak or canoe. It is one of the best ways to enjoy the natural gifts the Lowcountry has to offer and a perfect family activity.
Paddling is quiet. It’s down low so you can get close to nature. Peacefully go at your own pace. It will give you some of the best photo opportunities of your vacation.
Rent a kayak or canoe to go on your own, or sign-up for a guided two- to six-hour kayak tour with a trained interpretive naturalist.
Whether you are a beginner or an experienced paddler, you are covered. Explore our waterways and see dolphin; canoe the lagoons of `Palmetto Dunes Resort; visit Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge; paddle the May River or the black waters of the New River; visit near-by islands such as Daufuskie or Bull Island; see the Lowcountry at sunrise, sunset, or full moon; experience the summer Tuesday evening fireworks; try kayak fishing or a daylong special interest trip.
Once you’ve checked in and selected your flotation vest, instructors will teach you how to hold the paddle and steer your craft. If you are going out on your own, they will provide you with maps showing you “no go” areas such as oyster beds and sand bars.
Most kayak companies operate year around with seasonal schedules.
Paddle away. Race, drift or splash – it’s up to you.
