CHARLESTON HISTORY & WILDLIFE
SHEM CREEK FLAGSHIP
YOU CAN'T SEE US FROM THE SHEM CREEK BRIDGE.
Well, that's not entirely true. If you look up the creek, away from the harbor, you'll see blue letters on a rooftop that spell out COASTAL EXPEDITIONS. That's where you'll find us, situated away from the hustle and bustle at a quiet and private spot up the creek. This location on Shem Creek in Mount Pleasant is our flagship campus, tucked in a protected area of the waterway.
This location offers a private dock, parking lot, retail store and bathrooms/changing area. Once on the water, you'll have some time to get acclimated to your kayak or paddleboard before you glide away from the dock and down through the shrimping village.
You'll witness the intermingling of wildlife and Charleston culture as you travel down Shem Creek and into the Charleston Harbor. As dolphins breach nearby, you'll be taken by the sights of the downtown skyline, Ravenel Bridge, Fort Sumter and other iconic views. At the mouth of Shem Creek, paddle around Crab Bank Seabird Sanctuary, a small summer nesting island for thousands of Pelicans, Black Skimmers, Sea Gulls and other species (it is spectacular).
Perfect for history buffs, kids, nature lovers, dolphin seekers and those that want a fun introduction to the Lowcountry!
