After School Outdoor Adventures | Ages 8-12 Book Now

Wednesdays
3:45 -5:15 p.m.

Drop off your children at our Shem Creek flagship for an afternoon that takes them on an outdoor adventure through the Lowcountry!  

Our after school outdoor adventure program allows kids to take a ride on our version of the Magic School Bus (our Coast Guard-certified ferry with a master captain at the helm) from Shem Creek and learn about our local ecosystems, bringing STEM lesson plans to life. The trip includes a variety of activities listed below, and will change day to day based on the tide and weather conditions.   Read a full description of activities here.

Weekly adventures include:

Crab Bank Shark Tooth Adventure
Salt Marsh Estuary Scavenger Hunt
Dolphin Citizen Science Adventure
Estuary Clean Up
Critter Collection 

 

All Coastal Expeditions guides are trained in first aid, CPR and lifeguarding.  As year round leaders of day camps and school field trips, our staff is well-trained to keep safety at the forefront.  Our Mount Pleasant campus offers on-site parking, private bathrooms & changing areas and a waterfront campus at the quiet end of Shem Creek.

Things to Know

AGES

TOUR DURATION
1.5 hours

COVID-19 SAFETY
During check-in and while on the boat, everyone will be required to wear a mask and socially distance.  Once we are on the island, kids can remove their masks (or leave them on).  Guides will wear masks throughout the adventure.

WHAT TO WEAR
Kids should be dressed for the weather, including a hat to protect from the sun.  Even if it is warm, a windbreaker is recommended for the boat ride.  Wear shoes that can get wet and will stay on their feet (Tevas/Chacos/sneakers are better than flip flops)

WHAT TO BRING
Water bottle, snack and sunscreen

ARE ADULTS ALLOWED TO COME, TOO?
This is an experience for kids only.  You’re welcome to hang out on our creekside deck or walk to nearby Vintage Coffee Cafe for a break if you want to stay close.  Or you could rent kayaks or paddleboards and have an adventure of your own!
