More than a South Carolina Bike Tour with Great Bike Tours
Our six-day South Carolina Bike & Boat Tour explores the flat coastal plain & waterways between Hilton Head Island and Charleston, South Carolina. Rather than thinking of the water as a barrier (to our cycling), we relish the opportunity to venture out on the waterways that are a treasured part of everyday life here.
One great way to experience Hilton Head Island is by its waterways. It’s smooth currents and occasional visits from marine wildlife make way for a relaxing activity that is fun for the whole family, an adventurous trip for two, or even a great time when paddling solo. When it comes to exploring the island by water, kayaking is a very popular option and allows you to take in all of the natural beauty from a different vantage point, and we know some of the best places for kayaking in Hilton Head that you must add to your list.
Kayaking is one of the best way to see the natural side of Charleston. Paddle alongside wild dolphins, wading birds, sea turtles and more! One of the best ways to relax and explore the Lowcountry is from the seat of a kayak. As you paddle through the calm saltwater creeks, you will discover the natural wonders and wildlife that call this area home. You will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with wading birds, oyster beds, barrier islands, wild dolphins and more… an experience you will never forget.
What to wear:
Cotton is not necessarily your best friend. In the kayaking community they say, “cotton kills.” Keep in mind that you exert yourself when you kayak, so you will sweat no matter if it’s cold or warm outside.
Recommendations for winter: splash pants, breathable waterproof clothing, neoprene waterproof socks.
Recommendations for summer: lightweight wicking clothing in general. It’s best to wear long-sleeve shirts to avoid sunburn. If you do wear short sleeve shirts and/or pants you MUST apply sunscreen as needed.
Recommendations for footwear: any shoes you would use for water sports like these for instance is good but be aware that with lightweight shoes you’ll have to be mindful of the oyster or shell banks. If you walk on them they will cut through your lightweight shoes or sneakers. Ouch!
Lastly, a hat is a good look to keep your head covered, cool, and protected from the elements.
