Shem Creek Paddleboard Tour Book Now

Glide down this historic creek between the docked shrimp boats and out into the Charleston Harbor for a unique perspective standing on your board.  Dolphins and- in the summers- manatees are likely to breach nearby, often so close that you can hear them breathe.  You’ll witness Eastern brown pelicans dive-bombing for fish around you and watch egrets and herons stalk their prey from their creekside perches.

It’s a fantastic way to experience Charleston, seeing the Holy City skyline from across the harbor.  Once you get your sea legs, your guide will share stories about the local history and lore, while explaining the intricacies of the salt marsh estuary and the critical habitat it provides.

Don’t worry if you’ve never been paddleboarding before!  We’ll teach you the techniques you’ll need to have a great time on the water and use the tides to help us out along the way.

Trip Advisor Reviews

With 9 girls in tow, we set out on our paddleboards for 2 hours to explore Shem Creek and challenge ourselves with some outdoor activity. We had a group mainly comprised of novice boarders; however, everyone gained confidence quickly and we were able to share tons of laughs and an overall wonderful experience. The instructions provided prior to departure were adequate and we felt the equipment was in good condition. This activity ended up being our most fun outing of the entire Bachelorette Weekend.
