Next Meetup

Well, ladies. One more forest excursion for us to enjoy. We will plan on meeting at the Citgo on 17N near the McClellanville light before we wander down to Echaw Creek for a wonderful trip through the swamp towards the South Santee River. We will enjoy this blackwater gem of a creek before we turn and return to Pitch Landing. This is always a crowd-pleaser due to it's abundant shade and quiet waters. We will partner with Nature Adventures Outfitters to travel into the Francis Marion. The "walking" trees alone are worth the trip. Bring water, snacks, sunscreen, and comfortable clothes that can get wet. The cost for this trip is $40 each or $15 for BYOBoaters. Call[masked] to reserve your spot.

    What we're about

    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 or at for more information on these paddles and more!
