Folly Beach Paddleboarding

Folly Beach has long been a go to spot for an easy going, wildlife filled paddleboarding experience. Being a larger river Folly is filled with wildlife including turtles, stingrays, and of course dolphins! If you are interested in Folly Beach Paddleboarding, you’re in for a treat. There’s a great local area for you to hang out before or after your paddleboarding session to get some authentic Charleston flavor. Tons of restaurants, bars, and hangout spots to kick your feet up after your paddle tour.

Shem Creek Paddleboarding

We love Shem Creek paddleboarding because it’s very accessible and easy for our paddleboarders. Shem Creek is a little on the smaller side ensuring minimal tides and currents allowing for an easy paddleboarding experience, so it’s great for beginners. You can have two kinds of paddleboarding experiences on Shem Creek. Head up through the creek, and you’ll get a more quiet, nature filled tour, but head out towards the harbor and you will see a more vibrant scene allowing us to pass by all the popular restaurants and bars into the harbor. Paddleboarding on Shem Creek allows you to have an unforgettable experience both on and off the water!

Paddleboarding in the Harbor

This is a must-see for Charleston visitors. Paddleboading in the Charleston Harbor, you will see a truly stunning 360 degree view of the center of Charleston allowing paddleboarders to view Fort Sumter, Fort Moultrie, Castle Pickney, Charleston Battery, and the Ravenel Bridge. If you like history, then this is a paddleboarding spot you don’t want to miss. Not only will you see major historical landmarks in Charleston, but it will also be an exciting adventure that you will always remember. The Harbor is stunning during the day and at sunset!

Kiawah Paddleboarding

This paddleboarding location is by far the most secluded. Surrounded by 360 degree views of natural beauty that includes woodlands, marsh, and an abundance of local wildlife. If your looking to get off the busy streets and lose yourself in nature, Kiawah might just be the place for you. Reconnect with nature and experience awesome paddleboarding in Kiawah.
