Overview

We offer Surf & Paddleboard Lessons The Carolina Waterman is a local nonprofit organization which organized for the purpose of educating our visitors about our local waters and the variety of ways to enjoy those waters. In order to help fund our mission we self generate funds by charging non-residents for one of a kind waterman experiences around Myrtle Beach. Whether you are looking for a calm and relaxing tour of our Waccamaw National Wildlife Refuge or interested in a gnarly day of learning how to surf in Myrtle Beach... The Carolina Waterman is the place for you. By supporting the Carolina Waterman you are supporting the growth of a healthy and responsible "waterman" community along the Grand Strand. This fall the Carolina Waterman will be launching a FREE local after school waterman program for a limited number of Horry County 9th Graders. Please follow the Carolina Waterman, share our stoke, and come out for an unforgettable experience!

Our family of four (including a 9 and 12 year old) had an amazing time paddle boarding with Trent and Meghan! The instruction was excellent and they took special care of our youngest. Beautiful scenery and knowledgeable guides. Would highly recommend this tour.

This outing is great for everyone. It's easy to do and educational. The swamp is surprisingly beautiful and peaceful. I really like what these good people are trying to do and I will do it every year I visit.

That really depends on personal preference! Our favorite time for lessons is usually 2 hours before - 2 hours after the high tide. Mornings usually have calmer winds and nicer weather though! Mornings for sure!
