In 1992, Coastal Expeditions introduced sea kayaking to Charleston. Since that time, people have been taken into the saltwater estuaries and blackwater rivers of the Lowcountry -by boat, kayak and paddleboard- while keeping with their mission of environmental stewardship and education.
Throughout the year, experienced guides create trips that are designed to take you beautiful places that will leave you inspired and energized. Spanning the coast from the waters of Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge and the Santee Delta to the floodplain of the ACE Basin, Coastal Expeditions knows the way. Overnight excursions and trips into the Francis Marion National Forest are also offered.
Coastal Expeditions is the contracted concession for the Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge and can take you into the heart of the refuge to Bulls Island. Lighthouse tours to historic Lighthouse Island are offered four times annually.
Offering half day, full day and overnight guided excursions as well as kayak and SUP rentals Coastal Expeditions truly has something for everyone!
