 A Favorite of Paddlers in the Lowcountry and Beyond

Named for its black tannic waters, the Black River has long been a favorite of paddlers in the Lowcountry and beyond. The river flows through bottomland forest along most of its length and offers excellent birding and wildlife watching opportunities.

This gentle paddle amid a forest of loblolly pine and black willow showcases nesting areas of turkeys, hawks, wood ducks, night herons and other wildlife.  Come join us as we explore this state scenic river and look for swallow-tailed kites soaring over towering bald cypress trees.

If you are looking for a kayak expedition that takes you places that you wouldn't be able to see otherwise, this is the trip to take.  We'll gently paddle down water trails that will maximize your wildlife opportunities, and the quiet rhythm of the kayaking will allow us to really get in sync with the natural world.
