Springtime is a great time of year to explore the coastal area of South Carolina by kayak or canoe. This popular water sport is one that more and more people are trying and finding out how much fun it can be. Kayaking is very peaceful and relaxing yet you can get a gentle upper body workout at the same time. When you’re looking for where to rent kayaks around Myrtle Beach, check out any one of the following businesses where you can get a rental then either go out on your own or sign up for a guided tour.
Paddling a kayak is a great way to explore the local rivers, inlets and other waterways. If the big ocean is more than you want to tackle, at least initially, check out the Intracoastal Waterway or the Waccamaw River. There’s a lot of exploring to be had if you enjoy nature but be sure to keep an eye out for what might be hanging around on the banks and along the water’s edge.
