Ever wanted to learn to paddleboard? Or just want to get out on the water on a kayak? Join us as we take a Shem Creek paddleboard/kayak trip. You have the option of taking a paddleboard or kayak.

This trip will be led by University Degreed Naturalist Wildlife Biologist and Certified Instructors from Nature Adventures!

Your paddle begins down historic Shem Creek among shrimp boats and festive restaurants that line the creek. We then journey out to a 22 Acre Island Preserve called Crab Bank, which is home to thousands of nesting shorebirds including the state threatened species Wilsons Plover and Eastern Brown Pelicans. Frequented by dolphin and sometimes manatee, this is a nice wildlife paddle.

This tour also includes incredible views of the historic Charleston Harbor, Castle Pinckney, Ft. Sumter, the Sullivan's Island Lighthouse and Patriots Point.

Cost: $20.00 per person (limit 2 sign-ups per student ID) and spots are limited so sign up today!

Price Includes:
-Historical 2-hour paddle (by paddleboard or kayak) through local saltwater marsh creek out to Crab Bank Island Preserve.
-Expert Naturalist Guide (Fees and Gratuties Included with Sign-up price)
-Paddleboard/Kayak and equipment rental

Please note that the water will more than likely still be a little chilly this time of year; if you choose to paddleboard, there is a chance you might fall in!!!
