About Waccamaw River Tours
We do Nature & Wildlife Boat Tours on the rivers and creeks of the Waccamaw River and Intrcoastal Waterway. It is a beautiful, moss draped river system along the untouched National Wildlife Refuge. We hope to see alligator, osprey, turtles, heron, egrets and whatever Mother Nature wants to reveal for the day. This is a narrated 1.5hr boat tour. It is an educational, historical and adventurous experience. You will check-in at the gift shop/education station. There are games and chairs on the property on the river for you to enjoy while you wait to board the boat. Grab a cold drink, chips or ice cream at the Gift Shop/Snack bar. You will enter the same road as the Waccatee Zoo and follow the Waccamaw River Tours signs to the back of the property along the river. We have our own parking area here, so come join us for a Nature & Wildlife river adventure. You may walk-up but be aware seats may not be available. We also have Private Nature & Wildlife boat tours for small or large groups.

I really enjoyed the people who run this tour. Our narrator, captain and Betty (in the store) were all nice and did a great job. Unfortunately, we did not end up getting to see much wildlife. We saw birds and osprey nests and that's about it. They really searched for an alligator, but none were to be found. Not the tour operators' fault, but disappointing. Overall, this was nice and calm but a little boring.

Wonderful experience. Everyone visiting the area should take the river cruise. It’s fun and informative. The guide is entertaining and shared a great deal of information about the area. The tour is something adults and children would enjoy and benefit from.

What a great tour of the backwater blackwater. Our crew of Ricky and Syd were awesome. Gave us history of the waterways, pointed out various wildlife, osprey nests, etc. Even saw a huge alligator. Betty in the store was a breath of fresh air! This trip is recommended for individuals of all ages.

We come to Myrtle Beach once a year and this was our first time on this tour. Our hosts made us feel like family. There is a little store and chairs for waiting. The tour was just what we needed. Lovely day and lots of information about the history, the environment, nature, and wildlife of the Waccamaw River. Highly recommend this tour.
