Advance purchase required. Tours often sell out!
Sunglasses with a strap, sunscreen, bug repellent, waterproof or disposable camera in a zip lock bag, a sack lunch or snacks, and plenty of liquids to drink such as bottled water. There is room for a soft-sided or small 6-pack type cooler in your kayak.
Be sure to bring any personal emergency medications, such as for allergies, that you may require. Leave valuables that you do not want to risk dropping into the water locked up in your car or at home.
Brimmed hat, cap, or sun visor and footwear that you do not mind getting wet (sneakers, sandals, surf slippers). You may want to be prepared to swim in warmer months. If cooler weather in the morning, then dress in layers since it can warm up rapidly during the day. If cooler and windy, gloves and a windbreaker are a good idea.
Once purchased, tickets are non-refundable and cannot be reschedule because your space is being guaranteed at the event. We plan for the number of guides and boats needed based on advance reservations and may turn away people if the tour fills up. Please do not sign up members of your party if you do not think that they will attend. We may cancel tours at our discretion with no charge to you in the event of bad weather or other circumstances. We can go out in the rain but not thunderstorms. Special cancellation policies apply to private groups. Call for details.
Rent or purchase our touring, surf, and beach kayaks and canoes. Rentals include PFDs, paddles, and cartop carriers. Multi-day rental discounts and delivery available (see rentals page for details on our delivery area). Sorry, we are not located on the water, but there are many fresh and salt water paddling locations within a 15-45 minute drive including five river systems: Winyah Bay, Pawleys Island, Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge and Francis Marion National Forest. Plan your own exploration. We have maps and paddling guide books.
