Charleston SUP safari was fantastic. Our tour guide Brian was a great teacher and very relaxed. My wife and I had never paddleboarded before and he could not have made us more comfortable. Highly recommend!

We decided Togo last minute paddle boarding and went with SUP. It was our first time paddle boarding and we LOVED it. Eric and Brian were great teachers and guides. Thank you for a great experience.

My daughters and I enjoyed our first paddle board experience. Our guide Eric was an excellent teacher and guide. We saw dolphins, pelicans, and a turtle along the way. I highly recommend taking one of their excursions.

We went when the wind was pretty strong but the instructor was super patient and guided us through the tour! It was definitely one of the coolest experiences I've ever had and we also got to see the dolphins!! I would definitely recommend!
