Charleston From the Water

Charleston From the Water

It was a windy day on the water and perhaps 3 hours was about an hour too much for some of our spaghetti arms but we made it through.  There were laughs- fighting against the winds and landing in some reeds and  having to be towed out by the tour guide (that was me- he had a little hook attached to his boat he latched onto mine and kayaked me out from under a pier). No one fell out of their boat, that’s the important thing.What a glorious summer in Charleston. I have to say the temperatures have not been stifling and there have been many breezes and days cooled off by rain.  I took advantage of this great weather and went kayaking in Mount Pleasant.  I opted for the 3 hour tour from Coastal Expeditions .  They are located in Mt. Pleasant at Shem Creek, the Isle of Palms, Folly Beach and also Bulls Island’s ferry.  They provided the kayak, the tour guide and the life jacket.  We were off after a brief introduction to proper kayak procedures.

The tour was fun and educational and going through the water you get a very different perspective on how the land is connected than you do in a car on the road.  Going through Shem Creek and under Coleman Blvd. looking up at the boats and restaurants is so very different than dining at Red’s and looking into the creek.  Going through Shem Creek was the most adventurous part- we saw three dolphins up close!

The guide was very knowledgable about area wild life and was excited to share information on everything we saw.  I learned that pelicans usually die because they lose their eyesight and can’t feed and how dolphins on the SC coast have a unique feeding strategy where they flip a fish onto shore then they flip themselves out of the water for a brief moment to grab the fish – it’s called “strand feeding.”

I can’t wait to get back in a kayak and I am looking into buying my own. This was an adventure I can’t wait to experience again.
