Daily Kayak Tour | Shem Creek Book Now

This tour is the gateway for experiencing Charleston by water and is one our our most popular adventures. Feeding into the protected edge of Charleston Harbor, this kayaking tour offers outstanding views of the Holy City skyline and unparalleled wildlife opportunities.

The sights of pelicans gliding just above the water and sounds of dolphins breaching alongside your kayak are all part of the Shem Creek experience. In the warmer months, we often see sea turtles and manatees in the creek- and the kayak is the best way to see these gentle visitors.

Once we emerge into the Charleston Harbor, the focus shifts to the inspiring views of the Charleston Peninsula, Ravenel Bridge, Fort Sumter and Castle Pinckney.

Perfect for families and small groups, Shem Creek is a great introduction to the intermingling natural and cultural history of the Lowcountry.
