Boat Landings for Charleston Kayakers

Sometimes it seems like getting on the water is more than half tha battle – The following list, picked-up from the SC DNR Marine Resource Division, is a good starting point. Private landings are by permission – make your plans in advance, and know your options for getting off the water should problems arise.

Looking for more information? Don't forget to check out Ralph Earhart's Kayak Charleston, a great resource with detailed directions and descriptions of more than 50 landings and throw-ins near Charleston.
