We've been vacationing at Edisto for over twenty years and were delighted to discover Wilkinson's Landing this summer. We have rented and launched kayaks twice--so far. Both trips were wonderful. The guide was extremely kind and accommodating. He arranges launch times with the tides to make for very relaxed kayaking. We had people of different abilities and experience who all were able to have a great time. It's an easy paddle over to a nearby island loaded with beautiful shells. We've seen beautiful marsh birds and playful dolphins each trip. Can't wait to go again.

My fiancé and I recently had the pleasure of enjoying the tranquility and sights at Wilkinson's Landing an it was nothing short of amazing! The location is beautiful and Captain Mike who headed our excursion was knowledgeable and charming and all around the perfect accompaniment to this wonderful day! I absolutely can't wait to return!

Definitely, not to be missed! We took this trip to Shell Island on our last day on Edisto Island. What a great surprise! Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area. If you're a shell fanatic this is something you should not miss on Edisto Island.

Michael was very nice and accomodated our last minute request to gain access to the property. We used our own kayak and paddleboard and spent three wonderful hours of seclusion on a constantly changing, absolutely beautiful shelling beach. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we paid for our four adult kids to go the next day. For those of you wondering, there is a very clean port-o-potty on site, just in case!

We stopped by in our ongoing quest to collect every seashell on every beach ever. Shell Island did not disappoint.

First, be sure to call ahead for a reservation. This is a small (one man?) outfit that doesn't have a front desk or storefront. We didn't have reservation but were very kindly accomodated. If the owner/operator wasn't there or couldn't take us out, we would've missed out on a great experience. So plan accordingly.

Second, bring cash. Again, this is a small outfit and they don't have a register and point of sale set up.

The owner took us on the approximately five minute trip from the dock to the island, let us out and came back in an hour and a half to pick us up. It was a perfect amount of time to scour the island for the perfect shell.

We would definitely go back and would recommend this place to anyone.
