We took the 1.5 hour Eco Tour. Enjoyed some leisure time on Capers Island and fast paced cruising of the waterways to and from. Would have liked more time exploring more "Eco" places and things. Good fun!!

My daughter woke up not feeling well so we had to call and adjust our reservation. They were very accommodating and changed our time. There was a short wait at the beginning of the tour but otherwise, everything went perfect!

Had an awesome time jet skiing, our instructors were Todd and AJ and they made the experience very enjoyable. I'm definitely coming back next time I'm in the area.

Ginger, Jordan, and the whole team were great! The jet skiing "safari tour" was the highlight of our short trip to Charleston/Kiawah. They accommodated both my level of experience (none!) and my boyfriends (more than none!). The value was great - overall, two thumbs up.

I don't believe Tidalwave Watersports offered kayaking on the ocean, but they did offer kayaking all around the Isle of Palms via; inland water ways and coves. The ocean is pretty rough, why not keep it simple and have some... More
