Cape Romain Kayak Tour Book Now

Located just 30 minutes north of the city, Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge is Charleston’s Wilderness.   This 66,000-acre refuge contains saltwater estuaries, barrier islands, freshwater impoundments and maritime forests, providing critical habitat plants and animals.  Bottlenose dolphins raise their calves in these protected creeks, loggerhead sea turtles nest on the island beaches and nearly 300 species of birds migrate through or are year-round residents.

The Cape Romain Kayak Tour takes you through the saltwater estuary from the mainland to Bulls Island.  As you wind through the emergent oyster beds, your guide will share stories about the region’s history from the time of Sewee Native Americans to the present.   Birds like Great Blue Herons, American Oystercatchers, Marsh Hens and Black Skimmers will be observed feeding along the edges of the creeks.  And a few of the resident dolphins are likely to make an appearance along the way, undisturbed by the quiet rhythm  of the paddles.

Once to Bulls Island, we’ll pull the kayaks to shore and take a break and enjoy an oceanside picnic.  After some beach combing on this pristine, undeveloped beach, we’ll paddle back through the estuary to civilization. Timed with the tides, this trip will utilize the incoming and outgoing tides to help us with our journey.

This trip was designated “one of the top 30 trips to take” worldwide in 2015 by Outside Magazine.

You can book this as a private tour for groups of 6 or more.
