What we’re about
Nature Adventures Kayak & Canoe Outfitters started the first ever meetup group for women who love to kayak. We'll explore "off the beaten path" kayaking trails to different locations in South Carolina including the Wando River, 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. These trips are offered once a month most of the year with some extra trips added if possible.
Nature Adventures staff including Elizabeth (Eli) Anderegg, ACA Coastal Kayak Instructor(retired) and SC Master Naturalist guide will host and lead the tours. We will include other guides or as needed for interpretation and safety.
Recreational kayakers, sea kayakers and even newbies will be welcomed. These trips have a modest fee for anyone who has their own kayak. If you need a kayak, Nature Adventures will provide one at a reduced rate. This is a perfect group to team up with to gain experience and skill development in kayaking while paddling with knowledgeable guides and experienced instructors. The paddles will focus on the fun in kayaking as we leave our worries behind. We paddle at a leisurely pace with no pressure and lots of laughter along the way.
This is a great way to stay healthy, enjoy the fresh air and share the love of nature and the outdoors. Grab your girlfriends and come along. We can't wait to meetup with you on the water. Feel free to check out our website at www.KayakCharlestonSC.com for information about our company and what we have to offer. Trip announcements will be made through our Meetup site. The announcements will convey information about upcoming trips, costs per person/boat, and event details. The message board for each trip is available for general questions, discussions or arrange a carpool. RSVP via the Meetup event page then call the office at 843-568-3222 to officially reserve your spot on the trip with a charge card. Additional questions may also be directed to the office phone.

Announcing a quick trip, but it's time to get out. Quenby is always a nice outing, Quenby Creek is a blackwater creek off the Cooper River. The cost for this trip is $45 each for those needing boats and equipment. BYOBoaters are $25 each. Please call 843-568-3222 to reserve your spot on this great trip. Remember, you are not officially registered without the phone call to reserve. We often wander up this way to check out former rice fields and glimpses of plantation houses from the water. Let's enjoy a a break from everyday stuff and enjoy friends and nature. Quenby is a great place to see wildflowers and maybe an alligator warming in the sun. We will paddle for a couple of hours exploring and looking for flowers and possibly some interesting birds. This is generally a calm creek that is enjoyable for most skill levels.

We can hunt on the bank for a couple hours. The cost is $60 if you need a boat and $30 for BYOBoaters. BYOBoaters will need to use the public boat landing at Simmons Street.
