Coastal South Carolina is known for its warm waters that attract a wide variety of marine life. Between the beaches and the coastal marshes, you’ll enjoy all the fishing, jet skiing, boating, kayaking, canoeing, and Isle of Palms parasailing you can handle. Your outdoor adventure starts and ends in the water.
Day 1: Kayaking
If you want to experience the backwaters of the Lowcountry, a kayaking tour is right for you. Take a closer look at the ecosystems where dolphins swim in pristine waters or paddle around the barrier islands where each one has its own beauty and charm. Many of the local tour companies offer kayaking lessons.
Day 2: Fishing
Anglers will love the creeks, inlets, and estuaries that crisscross the Lowcountry. Whether you’re a fan of freshwater fishing or saltwater is your passion, the fishing charters here will take you wherever you want to go. Spend the day learning the secrets of deep-water fishing from some of the most experienced captains this side of the Atlantic.
Day 3: Boating
Going on a boat tour is a relaxing way to spend a day out at sea while you enjoy the weather, the water, and the islands. Both the wetlands and the waterways have hidden beauty that you need to approach from the water to see it. Even the town looks different when you view it from the water.
Day 4: Eco Tours
Take a tour down this natural and unspoiled beauty where the ecosystems thrive in the rich waters. Watch the wading and shorebirds including the Great Blue Herons, Snowy Egrets, and Eastern Brown Pelicans. And marvel at the grace and playfulness of the dolphins swimming around you.
Day 5: Surfing
There’s no doubt that surfing is one of the most popular sports in the Lowcountry. Just go out any summer day and watch surfers riding the waves with fearlessness and daring. Surf rentals and lessons are offered. So if you’re not afraid to get wet, get on top of the board and wait for the right wave to come and bring you back to shore, or check out Isle of Palms paddle boarding.
Day 6: Jet Skiing
Another sport that’s getting the attention of adventurers and outdoorsy people is jet skiing. It’s like riding a bike but with no traffic lights and 360 degrees of mobility; the sea is literally your playground. Feel the water spray on your face and the warm wind behind your back.
Day 7: Parasailing in Isle of Palms SC
When you get tired of the water and want to take to the air, you should go parasailing. Take flight for up to 10 minutes and get a great view of the beach, the ocean and the horizon in an experience that you’ll want to repeat over and over.
