Myrtle Beach Kayak Tour

This Cypress Swamp 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, so it’s a little cooler in the summer.

On this two-hour 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. 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. If you are coming from up in North Myrtle Beach (or even central Myrtle Beach), this is the closest kayaking tour option.
