Twenty members of our Kayak Club travelled from Savannah GA to Hunting Island SC to take a 3 hour paddle with Kim & David. It was everything that was advertised. Kim is a wealth of information on the ecology of the island and David did an excellent job of leading us through the flats in the lagoon. The beach is... More

This was our third trip with Kim and David. As always, we had a great time and learned more about our coastal region. Both guides are friendly and very knowledgable about the Beaufort area. We paddled across the Fripp inlet on the hunt for Dolphins and saw a mom and her calf...so exciting! We highly recommend any of their tours,... More

I have to say this was one of the best kayaking experiences we have had (and we have had several). Great wildlife experience as we kayaked the lagoon out of Hunting Island. Kim and Dave were very knowledgeable and personable. We stopped for two breaks and even went swimming. Excellent day; if you are hesitant to try...do not be, you... More

Dolphin Ecology Tour: Best kayaking experience ever! Kim and David run a top-notch operation, providing seasoned and novice kayakers with a seamless tour. With their expert and gentle guidance, we were confident of a great float and were not disappointed. The route was explained beforehand and maps gave us our points of reference. Their equipment made for efficient uneventful paddling,... More

Best part of our vacation! We went out on the Hunting Island kayak tour. I'm so glad that we did, it was a fantastic experience. You drive into Hunting Island State Park, which is a great beach and then meet Kim and Dave at the lagoon. They give some instructions on paddling and navigation and then we were off. There... More

Our entire family enjoyed the tour with history, education and a hands on experience. We stuffed the two old folks into a double, the kids in singles, and found our time on the water to fly by. Kim & David are well prepared to see to it that everyone can handle the trip, and enjoy the trip. Highly recommended. JIm... More

We went on the ACE Basin tour with Kim and Dave last weekend. What a beautiful place! What a great way to see it! The tour started with a short history lesson of the area (very interesting!) and short kayaking lesson. Then the group got into kayaks and onto the water. Kim and Dave are always looking for interesting sights... More

Having never kayaked before, we were excited about going on the Beaufort Kayak Tour. It was great! Easy paddling both ways (with the tides). Beautiful scenery and great education about the birds, fish, etc. living on Hunting Island. We had a beautiful day with plenty of sunshine. The kayaks were in great condition and our guides were friendly, helpful and... More

Kim and Dave made our Hunting Island Lagoon Tour the highlight of our recent week in Beaufort. Great kayaks, knowledgeable instructors (we weren't beginners, but we picked up loads of good kayaking tips from them), interesting commentary about the Beaufort area's ecology and history, incredible scenery, and a leisurely pace that suited us and the other participants.
