Capers Island Kayak Adventure!

Capers Island is a spectacular Lowcountry kayak destination!  The Charleston Sea Kayaking Meetup Group hasn't been yet this year -- but will be heading out Friday!  Will YOU join us?

Here's the plan:

There is limited parking, please carpool as much as possible!

9:00 am - Meet at the Gadsdenville Landing.

9:30 pm - Approximate time of launch  -- perhaps a little sooner if on schedule.

Low tide around 12:30 pm.

We launch from the Gadsdenville Public Boat Landing in north Mount Pleasant. As the ebb tide edges us along Copahee Sound, we paddle to Capers Inlet (the inlet between Capers Island and Dewees Island). On the paddle out, we will see many shore and water birds along the mud and oyster flats.

Directions :
To find the Gadsenville Landing, from Charleston, go north on Rt 17. About 8 miles north of the Ravenel Bridge you will pass the intersection of Rt 17 and Rt 41 (stay on 17). 3 miles past this intersection is Gadsenville Road on the right. Take this right and go to the end of the road.  Parking is limited, so please carpool when possible.

View the description and directions on the Sea Kayak Carolina website here.

This trip is in relatively protected waters, only waves are from passing boats in the Intracoastal Waterway.

If a group wishes to continue around Deewees for more miles, that option is open.

This is a meetup trip.  All kayakers are paddling at their own risk.  Lifejackets must be worn, properly fitted and zipped up. Free to paddle with your own sea kayak (equipped with skirt) and equipment.  This is summer paddling - bring plenty of water to stay hydrated, hat, sunglasses, sunscreen and lunch/snacks.

    I would love to go but only have a rec kayak. How would I go about renting a sea kayak for this trip?

      I just got the email that you close at 2 on Wed., so I will be sure to call in the morn. I have a PFD so I just would need a kayak and a paddle since I only have a rec kayak. Thank you.

      Scott, I'm going to give up my spot so the other Scott can go. I do need to get down to the shop though and look for a new kayak. Have a great holiday!

      Scott, I am going to take myself off so that you can go. I feel badly with 3 people on the wait list, and I can go another time. I'm taking 3 summer classes and working FT, so I'm sure that I can get some work done this weekend. Enjoy and I'll catch ya'll on another trip.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
