I bring Military groups here for paddle boarding and kayak tours. The staff is always so kind and energetic, always making my groups feel welcomed! The military groups always come back ecstatic to tell me they went back with their family to board/kayak when visiting. So relieved they are comfortable with this company while being here during their duty station... More

The tour provided by Nature adventure outfitters was excellent. The guide was knowledgeable and allowed a certain amount of customization for the tour. The equipment was in good condition. The staff was very accommodating, especaillywhen we had a last minute schedule change. I would highly recommend this tour.

Our kayak paddle was on a beautiful creek about 35 minutes from downtown Charleston. It was breathtaking. Our guide was safe, knowledgeable, friendly and kind. We saw about 3 alligators sunbathing and amazing pristine forest/jungle type of foliage. I highly suggest this company.

There is a $10 charge for launching each kayak from their boat ramp. We reminded her that we were paying $80 for rentals and the added charge... More

beautiful trip up and down Wambaw Creek. Johnny and Matt (?) were helpful, friendly and very open to any questions. Everyone should see 1000 year old trees!
