Bubba did an awesome job as a kayak tour guide. At the end of the tour we got to see their horses, goats and wild boar BLT. Was a great experience and we will be back again.

“Very relaxing kayak. Perfect for people with little experience. River is scenic and close to North Myrtle Beach. Easy on and off the river. Better than the marsh kayak tours in my opinion..”
