  If you would like to paddle the coast
  Posted by: castoff on Aug-25-13 5:07 PM (EST)

In SC you can email me. We have the longest stretch of undeveloped coast on the eastern seaboard. Checkout the trip to Capers Island that at REI they have a short video about their trip which they charge about $750 to join. If you join the sea kayak Charleston meetup group you can checkout my photos on the members list and see some of photos of the area. Sea Kayak Carolina also has info about the area.

Depending on what you want to do we can primitive camp on the beach, or stay at a developed camp ground. I have seen big loggerhead turtles, bottle nose dolphin, eagles, gators, etc. We can do some surfing, exploring, paddle the marsh, ocean, Charleston harbor, vist abandoned lighthouses etc. In fact if some other pnetters want to join in it might be fun. Cost would be your share of gas, food, etc. I am not a guide nor would want any compensation, but do know the area and lots about the critters and history, and places to eat and see.

I live about 3 hours inland near Columbia, SC and always looking for an excuse to paddle the coast. I have two sea kayaks, paddles and camping gear. All you need to do is decide if you want to paddle here. I am retired but late September and early October will be bowhunting. What dates would work for you.

Oh yeah be aware the bugs can be bad after dark, or off the beach in the trees during the day, or if the wind is very still in warm weather. If paddling after October drysuits or wetsuits are a very good idea. As the water in mid winter can be in the 40s and low 50s.
