We are the only adventure outfitter with an outpost on the Waccamaw River featuring 1 acre of outdoor yard games, hammocks, swings, large fire pit, river front picnic tables and access to a 48 acre private island in the middle of the river for an unforgettable experience of exploring and camping options. Below are some of the adventures we offer: ESCAPE RIVER ISLAND - Teams of 2 are taken to a secluded 48 acre private island on the Waccamaw River and must complete 4 Survivor & Escape Room style challenges to unlock their tandem kayaks and paddles. The first team to Escape River Island and paddle back to our outpost wins bragging rights & prizes. Part escape room, part Amazing Race & part Survivor! ISLAND TOUR - Take a kayak or pontoon river boat tour to and around a secluded 48 acre private island. Your guide will point out plants, trees and wildlife many of which are native to the Waccamaw River before heading back to our outpost. RIVER CAMPING - coming soon

Had a great time loved the woodsy outdoor river. Will definitely come back and do it again. I felt safe even when my kayak over turned the owners were right there to get me. Crazy fun.

Jeff, our guide was great to be around. He was friendly, informative, and funny. The trip we took Kayaking on the Waccamaw River was peaceful and a good workout at the same time. We will be doing this again.
