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

This was a very informative trip with a lot of information about the area and people of the area. The boat was comfortable and moved slowly. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and we saw some osprey, eagles and a few alligators
