Deserted Island Tour

A true coastal Carolina experience, the Deserted Island Paddle is tailor-made for those who love adventure, uninhabited land and making everlasting memories.  Your adventure begins by taking a beautiful boat ride down the Intracoastal to an undeveloped barrier island. The captain will then drop you off with our experienced eco tour guide and assist in unloading your paddleboard or kayak. You will be left to explore the dunes, wildlife and island surroundings at your leisure. With the help of the current, wind, and a Blockade Runner instructor, you and your friends will begin your paddle back to the hotel. While paddling through the salt marshes, tidal creeks and protected waters of Banks Channel and the Intracoastal Waterway, you will experience the very best of our coastal region.
