The area is rich in history and wildlife so we are sure you can find some adventure we can help you with. Bring your camera, sense of adventure, water shoes, bottled water, sun screen, and big floppy hat. If we need bug spray I’ll bring it. Trips on the lakes may include a break on a sandy beach were you can swim or lay back and relax. Maybe we will start in the lake and travel through the Pinopolis Locks to the Tail Race then paddle to a local restaurant for lunch. Trips on the rivers and creeks may include stops at historic sites. You may see Indian pottery or arrowheads laying along the shore of an island or find a meglodon shark tooth on the bottom of a creek. Lakes Moultrie and Marion were created in 1942 with the help of the Civilian Conservation Corp. Lake Moultrie at 60,400 acres and Lake Marion at 110,600 acres contain flooded towns, farms, and forests. With the Congaree and Wateree Rivers feeding in from the west and a six and a half mile canal connecting the two lakes we have 100’ s of miles of shoreline to explore. Wadboo Creek, just outside Moncks Corner, SC is where the rice culture started in the south. It is also where General Francis “Swamp Fox” Marion carried out gorilla warfare during the Revolutionary War. The Santee River winds it’s way for over sixty miles to the ocean, we can paddle many sections seeing Wild Hogs, Swallow Tail Kites, White Tail Deer, and Wild Turkeys. Huger and Quimby Creeks takes us into abandon rice fields with Alligators, Great Blue Herons, Wild Rice, and many kinds of wading birds. If you have more time and don’t mind the drive there is Sparkleberry Swamp at the far western end of Lake Marion. Sparkleberry Swamp is 16,000 acres of bald cypress and tupelo trees standing in three to four feet of water. It is one of the most diverse and beautiful places the area has to offer. A perfect place to paddle. New in 2013, we are now offering guided fishing half day and full day in fully rigged sit-on-top Wilderness Tarpon Angler140 kayaks. I also have one Pungo120 Angler if you want to make it a father/son outing.  With 22 years of fishing experience on the Santee Cooper Lake system and 10 years fishing the marshes of the Charleston area I thought it was about time to share the fun.
