This trip was everything we could have hoped for. Joe was an awesome guide and teacher. We not only had a relaxing day on the water, we had a bit of adventure and we learned more about kayaking techniques. We will definitely be back!
We had a fantastic time! Joe was knowledgeable, friendly, and eager to share his passion for paddling. We toured Shem Creek, all the way to the Yorktown. Absolutely at the top of our most memorable experiences in Charleston. Thanks so much! I'm sure we'll be back for more!
We had a great time and felt so well taken care of by our guide. Beautiful waters with lots of "action". Thanks a ton, but would love to get a few of those pics!!
This was our first time kayaking and Joe was absolutely wonderful. He made sure that he showed us everything to keep us safe and ensure that we had a great experience. We learned a lot, saw dolphins and had a ton of family fun; can't wait to do it again! Highly recommended!
The tour was a really cool experience. Tour guide/company has a ton of experience and worked to personalize our experience depending on previous skill level, energy level for the day, and what we wanted to get out of it. Would really recommend for people who have experience kayaking before and want a legitimate sea kayak experience, not just a dinky ride around shem creek on a plastic kayak.
Great service, great laughs, flexible,. Had a great time. Felt safe
Our group of 7 people was made up of 4 adults and 3 teenage girls. We had a wide range of experience in our group - from very experienced river kayakers to one who had never been in a kayak of any kind. We chose a half day trip on Shem Creek and our guide was Joe Campbell. We all loved working with Joe because he was positive and thorough throughout the entire trip. He was great teaching those newer to sea kayaking and challenged the experienced boaters as well. We will encourage all of our friends to take a tour with Sea Kayak Carolina.
Bev was awesome. She worked us in to her tight schedule and created a great family moment.
Joe was a great instructor/guide. Very patient and gave tips that were very useful.
Joe was great with two inexperienced kayaker. He was patient as he talked through what we needed to do. The creek was beautiful as we paddled up and down it. We would definitely recommend Sea Kayak Carolina!
Very friendly professional and extremely knowledgeable staff. Our guide Joe was super. He had a genuine passion for kayaking and it made for a wonderful experience for my wife and I. Thank you Sea Kayak Carolina!!
It was a wonderful experience and Joe was amazing. He was very patient and fun.
Amazing experience and professional staff!
Joe was a good guide and host and taught my girlfriend whom had never kayakers before the ropes. Thanks.
We had a great time. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and kind. They made sure that everyone was confident on the water and gave lots of attention to each party member. Wonderful! I highly recommend Sea Kayak for a fun day activity!
We had fun. And we learned a lot about how to maneuver the boats. Thank you
Joe spent a lot of extra time with my exchange student, who had never even seen a kayak before. Nobody got wet!
Great. Joe was very good about gauging our ability to be sure we had the best trip possible. Very interesting and informative. Thanks!
Joe at Sea Kayak Carolina is great. He is clearly dedicated to running a professional, safe, and fun kayaking center. This is the kind of store that is the hub of a paddling community, a place to learn, get advice (whether you buy your boat here or elsewhere). Top-notch all around!
Joe and Bev are a lot of fun but kept safety first. The family felt comfortable from the moment we all met. Great couple of hours of kayaking. They prepared the group like professionals. I would recommend to friends and come back again
