Paddling Tours

We offer kayak tours on nearby Shem Creek (2 hours $55) suitable for first-time paddlers. We schedule longer adventures (4-6 hours, from $80), and we can plan your custom kayaking tour to Folly Beach, Charleston harbor or a variety of Charleston kayaking destinations.

World class Instruction

We regularly schedule classes for all skill levels, including ACA Instructor training and assessments. And to better assist your paddling development, we offer custom one-to-one coaching sessions and on-demand classes to accommodate for your schedule!

Kayaks, Clothes, Gear

More than just great kayaks, paddles and lifejackets, we carry the gear we use — chosen by paddlers, for paddlers. So whether you need to invest in a new roof rack or simply a safety whistle, we can help. Learn more from the Boats + Gear menu.
