My wife and I had a great time on the blackwater swamp kayak tour. The tour guide was great with lots of local knowledge of the area and of the history. He answered any questions we had. We could tell he was passionate about the outdoors and had of the conservation efforts in the area. We got to see some wildlife and lucked out great weather for the day.

The Blackwater kayak tour was amazing. Luke, our tour guide was absolutely terrific. He was so knowledgeable on the history of the swamps and even caught a snake barehanded on the tour. I highly recommend this to any resident or visitors of Charleston.

I'm so glad we were able to do this, as we found out the swamp isn't deep enough year round to kayak through. This was definitely a unique experience, and the scenery is gorgeous! Our guide was great, very knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife, and also was able to joke around. I highly recommend one of their kayak tours if you have the chance - the trip can easily be done by beginners as well!

We were in luck. The weather was perfect - clear blue skies, no wind and the day that Spring sprung. Luke guided us thru the swampy wilderness for a serene experience that my son and I will treasure. Pollen had dropped from the trees the night before giving the water an ethereal quality. We saw otter, wild hog, tortoises and raptors. this is so much more than a paddle ride. There is real history is this place and Luke knows it all. It was like a journey back thru time to the creation of the colonies. You MUST do this.
