Eco Paddle Tours – Explore Charleston by water!

Enjoy the exquisite beauty of the Lowcountry while paddling on majestic rivers intertwined with marsh and marine life.

Tour launch times are 100% dependent on the tides, weather, and wind. The time you select is just a placeholder, we will contact you with the launch time closer to the date.

Discover the sights and sounds of the Lowcountry like you never have before from atop a paddleboard. Our scenic Folly river tour is unrivaled as you cruise through immaculate marsh fields, secluded creeks and tidal mud flats. An experienced guide will lead you and the group through this saltwater wilderness, taking time to point out and discuss the local ecosystems, wildlife, and culture!

With Folly’s Center Street filled with plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance of the launch point, there is plenty to enjoy both on and off the water. Have some fun on the water with a paddleboard or kayak tour, and then enjoy what the rest of Folly has to offer.

All you need is sunscreen, sunglasses, comfortable clothes or hat that can get wet and some paddle energy.
