Kiawah River Christmas Safari Cruise | December 21 Book Now

Saturday, December 21st
11 a.m- 2 p.m.

Take a moment to gather the family before Christmas day on a relaxing wildlife-spotting tour down the Kiawah River.   This safari-style cruise begins at the Farmhouse at Kiawah River, an island village in the Charleston countryside on Johns Island.  This beautiful setting, shaded by grand live oaks, will provide a festive setting to begin the tour.

From there, we’ll board Godwit and set out for adventure.  Late December is perfect for spotting winter birds like bald eagles and American oystercatchers.  With the marsh grass in winter dormancy,  expect the bright bills and bold feathers stand out against the landscape.

Resident dolphins are likely to make an appearance, too, as they slowly work their way through the estuary to hunt. With a dedicated naturalist on board, you’re sure to learn something you didn’t know and see something you may not have noticed- like a deer feeding along the edge of the river or marsh sparrows hidden in the grass.

Bring your binoculars and a thermos of hot coffee or cocoa for this fun family outing.

This excursion is suited for all ages and abilities and our custom-built vessel is fully covered for added comfort.
