The Myrtle Beach area is much more than a great beach. There is a whole different world waiting just a few miles inland along the rivers, creeks, and marshes of the South Carolina Low Country. A 15-minute drive from downtown Myrtle Beach and you’re on the Waccamaw River: A beautiful black water river with towering cypress trees draped in Spanish Moss, warblers singing in the brush, and swallow-tailed kites circling overhead (not to mention snakes and alligators).
Come on a kayaking tour with Black River Outdoors, and let one of our amazing and entertaining guides show you a side of the Grand Strand that most visitors to the Myrtle Beach area miss completely.
We had an incredible adventure led by Black River Outdoors along the Waccamaw river.
Richard (our guide) was extremely knowledgable about the local flora and fauna, and even took us to see carnivorous plants (the highlight of the trip)!! If you want to see how spectacular the environment along the Waccamaw really is, you won’t find a better company to do it with.

Beautiful Cypress Canopy
The Cypress Swamp Kayak Tour may have been the highlight of our week-long vacation in Myrtle Beach! Our guide Mandy first of all made sure I was completely comfortable (knowing that I had never used a kayak before) and in short order I was confident…Under the stunning cypress canopy we observed birds, turtles, and a lot of flora. A fabulous experience we will no doubt do again when we visit Myrtle Beach again!

We had a great time on this tour with kids (ages 5,6,7). The guides are extremely knowledgable and took their time to look for animals and plants and point them out. We saw fishing spiders, tree frogs and lots of birds – no snakes or alligators this round but they were out there. A really great tour to get to know the kayak – pretty calm waters and just a really great overall experience in nature!
