KIAWAH RIVER

Just south of downtown Charleston is a hidden gem where we have a new outpost. Leaving from the beautiful grounds of Kiawah River,  this is the ideal departure spot for a nature tour.  Roseate spoonbills and strand-feeding dolphins are often seen this time of year. And a nearby rookery island can be circumnavigated to see nesting seabirds by the hundreds.

Some ideas:  Birding expedition to a rookery island, Dolphin cruise to Capt. Sam’s Spit, Family Wildlife Safari

SANTEE DELTA

This is a unique opportunity to explore blackwater and saltwater ecosystems on the same day.  You’ll begin up the river in freshwater with wildflowers lining the banks.  Swallow-tailed kites, hawks and alligators dominate the wildlife viewing on this part of the trip, and your guide will share the slave and plantation history that shaped this region.  As you go down the river, it changes to brackish and then salty water.  The landscape changes to Spartina grass and barrier islands, with dolphins, bald eagles and pelicans making their appearance.

Some ideas: River cruise; Cedar Island Beach Drop
