Nature Adventures

When learning and fun collide, kayaking is often involved. Teaching children and teens about the natural world can be both exciting and engaging. Nature Adventure’s field trips in Charleston, SC allow students to explore and observe some of the Lowcountry's bounty. Dolphins, pelicans and shorebirds abound in the saltwater creeks and marshes. Blackwater swamps and alligators provide a backdrop for exploration of the rice culture that made South Carolina wealthy and almost tore the young nation apart. The unique ecology and environment of the Lowcountry comes alive before their eyes, inspiring kids to learn is a keystone of our programs. Program specialists include naturalists, marine biologists, birders, historians, wildlife biologists and ACA-certified kayak guides and instructors.
