What You'll Do

Located behind Wild Dunes Resort on the Isle of Palms, Morgan Creek meanders through rich salt marsh estuary dotted with small verdant hammock islands. Once past the yacht harbor, the vista opens into expansive salt marsh panoramic views. This beautiful paddle eventually leads us to the Intracoastal Waterway, Seven Reaches Creek, and eventually to Gray’s Bay, a vast tidal flat that is home to a variety of creatures from egrets, herons, pelicans, and gulls to dolphins, turtles and otters. Come explore this amazing ecosystem and discover what gives “Wild Dunes” its name. **During a low tide, the Morgan Creek portion of this tour may be omitted if there is not enough water to pass through**

Having a Biologist as a tour guide is a fantastic idea!


"Fantastic tour"

July 3, 2017 - 

We are a family of three, new to kayaking. We got a quick and helpful lesson on the basics, and we took a beautiful and leisurely tour of the ICW and some streams around Isle of Palms. What a beautiful and peaceful way to get to know our surroundings, and to meet some new friends of other species!


"Great tour!"

Kevin is a fantastic guide. We were lucky enough to see a dolphin up close shock feeding in the shallows. Great way to end our trip to Wild Dunes
