Nature Adventures Kayak & Canoe Outfitters is starting the first ever meetup group for women who love to kayak! We'll explore "off the beaten path kayaking trails" once a month to different locations in South Carolina including Sparkleberry Swamp, the ACE Basin and others! Most trips will be within a 1 to 2 hour drive from Charleston and carpooling will be welcomed. Trips will meet at 9 a.m. and will return by 2 or 3 p.m. that same day. Nature Adventures staff including, Kathie Livingston, owner, professional naturalist & ACA Certified River Kayak Instructor and Elizabeth (Eli) Anderegg, ACA Coastal Kayak Instructor, & ornithology guide will host and lead the tours! Recreational Kayakers, Sea Kayakers and on some trips, even canoes will be welcome! These trips will be free of charge to anyone who has their own kayak! If you need one or want to bring a friend, a reduced fee will be offered for rentals. We've led overnight Womens retreats for years and even on our days off we paddle with friends, so we thought... why not open it up to all women who love to kayak? This is a perfect group to "team up with" to gain experience and skill development in kayaking while paddling with knowledgeable and expert instructors! The paddles will focus on the "fun" in kayaking as we leave our worries behind! No pressure, leisurely paddling and lots of laughter along the way. This is a great way to stay healthy, enjoy the fresh air and to share your love of nature and the outdoors... Intergenerational familes also welcome! So grab your girlfriend and come along. We can't wait to meetup with you on the water! Free free to check out our websites at http://www.NatureAdventuresOutfitters.com or at http://www.KayakCharlestonSC.com for more information on these paddles and more!

For those of you that want more, here it is. Horseshoe and Chessey Creeks are tributaries of the Ashepoo River. This is a full day trip with a half day pace. We will paddle from Price's Bridge landing out of Horseshoe Creek to Chessey Creek. We will stop for lunch at the Chessey Creek boat landing and stretch our legs for a bit. Then we will continue on our way through the old canals and neighborhoods back to Price's Bridge. The sights on this trip are unique and fun. This trip is a little over 7 miles total, but with the stop at the halfway mark, this is a casual feeling paddle.
For those of you that need a boat, the cost is $55 and BYOBoaters are $20.
It's been a while since we have taken a trip around Shem Creek. This is one of the last days that Crab Bank will be open to human visitors. Starting the 14th, Crab Bank reverts to it's more important role as a bird sanctuary. We will take this opportunity to paddle around the island as well as stop for a little visit. It would also be a good time to pick up any trash that may be there. We want to erase all the human evidence before the birds move back for the spring and summer. We will enjoy views of the harbor, Ft. Sumter and the Charleston skyline as well as spent a few hours with great company. The cost is $40 each and $15 for BYOBoaters.
Please call[masked] to reserve your spot.
