What you'll do

This is a salt marsh adventure! Before getting on the water, we'll learn the basics of paddleboarding or kayaking (your choice) with a short introduction to equipment, strokes, and safety considerations. Don't worry, no experience necessary! First, we'll take it slow and get used to managing our board/boat. Then you'll be given a guided tour on the waterway for your specific adventure toward a small hammock island. Keep an eye out for dolphin, egrets, and other wildlife! You'll learn the names of many local flora and fauna as we follow the tides. After a short paddle to the island, we'll take some time to relax and appreciate the natural beauty of the area while watching the marsh grass massage your soul as it waves in the coastal breezes. We can paddle on just about any waterway in the Charleston area.

Since 2006, I have been exploring the natural beauty of the lowcountry by water, discovering islands, animals, plants, and stories. My specialty is creating personal adventure experiences in the natural world.

Where you'll be

We will be exploring the Stono River, a saltwater, tidal river that separates Johns Island from James Island and Folly Beach. On the Stono, we'll visit one of two particular hammock islands; little natural islands hiding among the saltwater rivers you wouldn't know about otherwise. The trip might be shared with egrets, herons, dolphin and more!
