Of course, you know you can enjoy the Myrtle Beach area’s 60-mile long beach, revel in its many dynamic attractions, and dine at 1,800+ restaurants, but did you know there are an abundance of activities that allow you to slow down, relax and explore the region’s natural beauty? Kayaking is one of the best ways to immerse yourself in nature as you quietly traverse waterways and observe wildlife in its natural habitat.
Our region offers remote island exploration, salt marsh tours, sunrise tours, river tours, Intracoastal Waterway tours, fishing by kayak and much more. Along the way, you can observe unique ecosystems and perhaps even spot dolphins, turtles, birds, snakes or alligators! From the ocean to the many inlets, the Waterway or our rivers, there are several kayaking options for those with an adventurous and eco-minded spirit. We have several outstanding companies that can assist you with planning an unforgettable paddle excursion in some of South Carolina’s most interesting habitat.
