My wife had a blast driving and the boat was stable enough that I didn't feel like she was going to kill us all!
We had an amazing time! Josh was a great tour guide and the entire staff was personable with excellent customer service.
There's a reason we're repeat customers! It's always fun and the guides are very helpful!
The boat was fun
The ride was different from anything we have done. Boat took a little getting used to steering, but it was exciting, especially when passing another boat. Got a little air twice. Guide was very good, the other boat with us was a little slow. But it is what it is. Will probably do it again but we'll bring some friends with us. Do the 4 o'clock tour, then hit happy hour at T-Bones.
Great employees, great tour, great time
This was a great tour. They are safety oriented and family friendly. Highly recommend.
I thought we were going on a boat tour and all we did was follow the guide down the river at full speed. There was basically no interaction, therefore $99 is a little much. The boats were cool, but we thought we would get a play time rather than follow in a straight line for one hour. Everyone was nice, just not what we expected.

The captain was awesome they checked on us, to make sure we were safe and having fun. It was the best boat ride wver! We will be back
had an awesome time, lots of fun. have already told many people that this is a must do when visiting myrtle beach.
We had a great time. It was a fun experience highly recommend
The staff was very professional and ensured we had a safe good time.
Very fun a great time. One of my highlights of my vacation here in myrtle beach
My wife and I had a great time riding these 'CraigCat' boats together. It allowed us to share the same exhilarating experience at once unlike other watersports. It took a few minutes to get accustom to the controls but after that it was fun... The tour guide ensured that the group understood the controls and practiced a bit then we took off riding behind him through the waterway. I would recommend this activity for anyone looking to have some excitement in the water with minimal (zero) risk. We would definitely do this again!
The boat tour was great..... I love the water; but, I can't swim so I'm also terrified of it..... I was skeptical being so close to water that would be over my chest line if I were to fall in, but I was assured the boat would not tip over and as long as I didn't jump in (as if....right?) I wouldn't fall in. Once I got used to the bouncing from the wake of other boats that we were behind or passed, it was great! My boyfriend (who can swim, of course..) had a fabulous time as he was the driver. Now that I've done it, I'm pretty sure I can go again and have an even better time because I know what to expect... Overall, this was a wonderful experience and the people at Salt Shaker were totally AWESOME!! Our guide Jacob took time to always check on me throughout the tour and was knowledgeable in the boat and keeping our tour safe. Insider tip..... the 6 pm tour was the perfect time (during summer) because there were less boats on the water (so less wake) and the sun was not directly over head. Great time!
Really fun and great way to see some amazing homes and boats.
Great tour of the intercoastal waterway. Our tour guide was super! Highly recommend this activity.
Fun unique activity! Josh was great with our family. Boats were fun to drive. Thank you.
The tour guide was great! He made it a fun experience! I'll be coming back the next time I'm in town.
Josh was very professional with his instructions and a very pleasant person. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
It was a neat area and the boat was fun to maneuver in the water!
We loved it last year and this year as well! We had a blast!
This was our favorite experience this past trip to Myrtle Beach and we definitely recommend this to anyone looking to have a different and extremely fun on the water experience. It was easy to get the hang of driving the boat. Our 18 year old picked it up easily with minimal prior boating experience. Jacob our guide was great and a very happy and knowledgeable about the boats and the area. We will definitely do this again and highly recommend it to others!
This is the best $100 We spent the last two years here. These boats are awesome and look fwd to coming again next year.
We did a family group with three boats and people ranging from six years of age to 70+. We have done pontoon rentals and other boat trips before, but wanted something different and with mobility and age limitations were unable to do Jet ski's or anything like that. This gave us speed and adventure but worked for everyone to participate. Only downside was having to pick who got to drive
Only issue was it wasn't long enough. Maybe offer trips longer than an hour.
Great Enjoyment for adults and Kids!!
I'm not sure the name of the guy that was our tour guide but he goes to Clemson for engineering. He was awesome!! Very thorough and helpful!! Also extremely friendly and easy to get along with. Also, the guy who checked us in was very nice and helpful and just a great asset to the company! We were very pleased!
Great tour guide. Loved the boats. Easy to operate.
The tour guide was great and the boats were much more fun than jet skis and for a group of six if was nice to get a group rate. Me and my husband rode these last year and had to take the kids, they loved them. Will definitely be back.
We had a blast on the boats. It was our first time driving a boat. The guide was phenominal and very patient with us. Both of the guys were very nice. We would definitely do it again.
The staff and experience we had was amazing This was our second time in a month and had to bring the family down. Thank you for another great time at Salt Shaker
Everything on the tour was great. We will definitely return to go out again. Thanks!
It was a lot of fun and the guide, Josh, was very personable and fun!
Awesome time out on the water, I was nervous at first, instructor very helpful, boats were easy to operate. Friendly staff, will be back again next year. *****
The entire experience was % FUN! Knowledgeable staff and impeccable customer service. Fist time boater and I feel like I can now own a boat! Josh was an excellent instructor and guide. Great family fun!! Thanks so much:)
It was a great time. I would suggest this activity to anyone searching for water sports fun. They are easy to navigate even without boating knowledge.
