The perfect team to explore with

Waccamaw River Tours is the brain child of Capt. Rick and Kim. Their adventurous spirits, love of the water (sailing, kayaking, and snorkeling) and nature (hiking) melted together in the creation of these river tours. The beauty of this river is a medicine that soothes the heart and heals the soul. We hope you‘ll join us for a River Adventure of Nature!
