Kayaking the low country of Folly Beach and the surrounding islands of Charleston is magical, to say the least. Seasoned kayak and paddle boarders will appreciate the challenge of the tides and the meandering tidal marsh. First-timers can also enjoy the experience with many professional local guides. It is not uncommon to encounter a friendly dolphin trailing the wake of your kayak. Magic! It’s no surprise that kayaking in Charleston SC can be a lot of fun. I’m learning to appreciate lots of things about the low country that I didn’t appreciate (or know) before. For several years now, Charleston has been topping the “Best Of” charts for US travel destinations. Luckily, I’m married to a native and get to enjoy visiting family any time of the year, off the typical tourist path.
