• Our Tours •
Nature & Wildlife Boat Tour
This is a one and a half-hour narrated Nature & Wildlife boat tour of Myrtle Beach’s beautiful cypress-lined and moss-draped Waccamaw River, and the Intracoastal Waterway and its creeks/swamps in search of wildlife. Learn about the history of these rivers, the Waccamaw area, and its wildlife along the untouched National Wildlife Refuge. There are large osprey nests along the river. This is a beautiful and peaceful section of the Intracoastal Waterway/Waccamaw River.
Private & Group Nature & Wildlife Boat Tour
Enjoy a riverboat tour in a private setting by buying out the boat for your own private hour and a half narrated Nature & Wildlife River Boat Tour. We can accommodate 1-6 people in our small boat or 15-46 people in our large boat.
PLEASE NOTE: Private tours for 1-6 people are available to book online for the 9 AM time slot daily. If you have a large group or want a different time slot please call us at (888) 315-9439. Booking a specific time may require a few days notice, so please book early!
Osprey Photography Boat Tour
Osprey photographers and bird watchers alike, we are going to get you up close and personal for some great pictures/viewing of these family-oriented birds in their natural habitat. The Osprey return here every year in March to mate, rebuild their nests, have and raise their young and migrate South by late August. There are many active Osprey nests along the beautiful and natural region of the untouched Waccamaw National Wildlife Refuge. It is a photographer and wildlife lover’s dream, whether you are a bird watcher or a amateur/professional photographer. It is a joy and trial to try to capture the perfect shot of the Osprey catching its prey, feeding their young or carrying materials to build their nests. Of course, other wildlife just might cross our path along the way so have your cameras or binoculars ready!
Space is limited to 15 passengers to allow everyone to move about more freely to take pictures (monopods only please). In addition, the Captain will maneuver the boat for the best shots/views to allow all sides to have great photo/viewing opportunities. Check the schedule for dates and times and book early!
