The SUP safari was absolutely amazing. Eric, our guide, was incredible knowledgeable about the animals in the area and was funny as well. I would do this again (and again and again). If you are ever in the Charleston/Folly Beach area, this is a MUST!

My tween daughter and a friend went on two paddle board tours. They had never gone paddle boarding before. They loved it! They especially liked seeing the dolphins and jumping in the water. The tour guide was excellent.

We did a SUP tour one day and surfing lessons another. Both were excellent! Very informative and friendly instructors. I highly recommend this place for your outdoor beach activities in the Folly Beach area.
