Very knowledgeable tour guide Madeline. We explored the swamp on Middleton Place, it was incredible. Highly recommend. This tour is closer to Charleston than other competitors and is more reasonable too. You will not be disappointed!

We are not experienced kayakers, but Luke did such a great job explaining the tides, currents and how to paddle efficiently. He answered all our wildlife questions when we returned. Highly recommended!
