At Charleston Kayak Company, we are a small guide-run outfitter, passionate about all things outdoors. Our goal is to have a good time on the water, while helping to foster a conservation minded ethic within our own community and with visitors to the Charleston area. We specialize in professional naturalist guided tours with low guest-to-guide ratios. This focus helps to insure an intimate experience on the water, and ability to customize the experience to any skill level. Wether its via guided kayak tours, kayak rentals, and boat charters, our activities get you closer to the natural world, and offer a unique access to a host of different eco-sytems. We are passionate about  the history, ecology, and wildlife that makes the low-country of South Carolina so special. See you on the water – Luke Pope-Corbett ~Owner/Guide

Dolphins, Birding, and undeveloped islands

We love kayaks, but our 24ft Carolina skiff allows us to cover a much larger area, and offers great wildlife viewing opportunities. Our boat charters are private, so whether you enjoy wildlife viewing and narrative by your naturalist captain, or just looking to get on the water to cruise with friends and family, we have you covered. There are opportunities for shelling and fossil hunting in the shadow of the historic Morris Island lighthouse. Call today to get your custom trip arranged!
