This experience was awesome. We were in Myrtle beach for my sons birthday and they really enjoyed it. Our hosts were funny and knowledgeable. 10 stars

People who owned & ran the tour were great. Very nice, friendly, funny and knowledgeable. Enjoyed the boat ride and scenery. Laughed a lot and learned somethings about the river and wildlife.
Captain's political jabs not my views
, Jun 2021
The Waccamaw River Nature and Wildlife Tour was a good experience and educational. The reason for the 3 star, the boat driver wanted to make political remarks regarding the expert Dr. Fauci. In the future "Captain" why don't you stick to what you know (driving the boat and narrating) and leave the medical stuff to those experts. Thanks to Dr. Fauci (who helped save your life) this country is getting back to normal and maybe soon "Skipper" you can have a full boat load of paying customers. Just leave the political jabs on shore and out of ear shot to your paying customers. Everyone doesn't agree with your political views.

Wonderful Day

This was a really beautiful trip. There was plenty of wildlife on the water the day we went out and the weather was beautiful. Rick ensures everyone is taken care of and has a great time! Even our 3 year old was very engaged!

Well worth the cost.

Had a great time. Guy was very knowledgeable. Saw a lot of ospreys and their nests. Was definitely worth the cost.
Beauty and Peace on the River
, May 2021
There was so much beauty and nature on this tour. It's a great break from all the built-up areas on the beach. The families on the trip really enjoyed the tour narration, and I liked the nature parts. It's fascinating to see what the area must have looked at before so many people showed up. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable, including Bella.
