Shem Creek Kayaking

Kayak rentals in Charleston SC are available at Shem Creek 7 days a week. Walk ups are welcomed however, advance reservations are highly encouraged.  Our ramp guides provide kayak paddle instructions, PFDs, a map with recommendations and help you get into your kayak properly. If you are visiting anywhere Charleston area, Mount Pleasant, Isle of Palms, Sullivans Island for several days, we also offer takeaway rentals of kayaks. Delivery is also available to make it a stress-free ordeal.

Renting a single or tandem kayak is a great way to explore the tidal salt marsh of Shem Creek or explore any of the numerous waterways Charleston has to offer people looking for things to do. When you rent for a half day, 4 hours, you can explore the majority of Shem Creek, Bayview Creek and possibly get to and around Crab Bank Island at the mouth of the creek depending on the tide.  Renting kayaks in Mount Pleasant is great for small and large groups alike. You can paddle a lot and cover lots of water or go where the winds and tide take you...but don't forget you'll have to fight them coming back. That is why we recommend heading the advice of our ramp guides on the best paths based on current conditions.

Restrictions: Ages 4 and up welcome. Ages 14 and up can paddle in single kayaks if desired. 13 and under must be in a Tandem 2 person kayak with someone 14 or older. Minors under the age of 17 must be accompanied by an Adult over 18 years of age.

Kayaking with dolphins

"Bryson was an excellent guide and took us an enjoyable paddle on Shem Creek. We saw several groups of dolphins swimming right beside us. We paddled out to the bird sanctuary and saw many brown pelicans and several newborns. Bryson gave us an excellent overview of the Charleston skyline and the history of its forts."

Paddle board and kayaking

"Even though it rained beforehand, it was worth the wait. And rain made the dolphins more active. Bryson was an awesome guide. It was a first for a friend an me and so much fun! Will definitely return!"

Fun, Relaxing, and Informative

"My wife and I took the kayak tour in the early morning. Neither of us had been on a kayak before, but our guide, Jim, had us feeling like pros in no time. The boat traffic was low that day and the water was very calm. Making the day a relaxing, yet fun, way to cap off our vacation."
