Cypress Swamp Tour (Cox Ferry)

Quick Details

Navigate the Cypress Swamp on a Myrtle Beach Kayak Tour

This kayak tour generally has the easiest currents, so if you are concerned about being able to paddle, this is usually the easiest tour from a physical perspective and accessible for all skill levels. It is also much more shaded thanks to beautiful cypress trees draped in Spanish moss, so it’s a little cooler in the summer.

On this two-hour Myrtle Beach kayak tour, your knowledgeable (and funny, according to our TripAdvisor reviews) guide shares interesting information about the swamp, its plants, and its wildlife inhabitants. The swamp is home to a pair of nesting osprey, as well as numerous other birds.

As we paddle the calm waters on this peaceful kayak tour, you may see snakes, turtles, and sometimes alligators! The snakes are almost all nonvenomous, and all are harmless. We don’t bother them and they don’t bother us, but we may get to take a peek at these animals in their natural habitat!

If someone in your group is afraid of snakes but is willing to learn more about them, this is a great tour option for them. We never force snakes on anyone, and are eager to educate you!

If you are coming from up in north Myrtle Beach (or even central Myrtle Beach), this is the closest kayaking tour option.
