We've taken just about every boat trip available in the Myrtle Beach area, and we found this one to be very interesting. We liked the factor that it was covered so we didn't really need sunscreen, and the seats were very comfortable. Instead of limiting...More

The ride of a lifetime for my grandchildren. A well informed guide and a friendly staff made the trip worthwhile. I was impressed with their attention to safety. If you want to get away from the crowds on the beach, it is the perfect diversion.

We had an amazing time on the airboat ride. We got to see a big gator right on the bank beside us and it came flying off the bank right into the water toward us. This is the second time we have taken this trip...More

This was fun and a good way to see the river but not really informational. The noise of the boat makes narration impossible when it’s moving and we stopped to see several ospreys but no real history of the area or anything shared. It was...More

Took plantation cruise today. Guide was very knowledgeable. Would recommend this cruise for adults and/or person with mobility issues. I think kids would find it boring. The amount of time on the water was perfect. Wouldn’t change anything. My only suggestion would be that you...More

A wonderful experience, narrated beautifully, very relaxing. A 2-2 1/2 hour boat ride on the Waccamaw River with overhead roof...the front part of the boat has canopy also for protection from the sun. Great restaurant to catch a bite to eat after boat trip

A very interesting and informative tour. Our guide gave us an extremely knowledgeable narrative about the eco structure along the waterways and the plantations on the land. The boat was comfortable and very accessible for seniors. A small point is that the brochure and confirmation...More

We had such a fantastic experience on the airboat ride with our son. The boat ride itself was a first for all of us. We enjoyed seeing parts of South Carolina that you don't otherwise have access to on the river. I would highly recommend...More
