Less than 10 minutes from downtown Charleston is the Shem Creek Shrimping Village. Here, you will find restaurants on the water, boaters coming in and out, and plenty of people paddleboarding, kayaking, and canoeing. You can rent a kayak, canoe, or SUP from Nature Adventure Outfitters on Shem Creek to take in the best of the salt marsh life. You can either purchase a rental to explore the salt marshes and crab bank island, or go on one of their guided saltwater or blackwater tours. It is so much fun to explore the barrier islands, black river swamps, and rivers Charleston offers. If you’re lucky you’ll spot a dolphin right before sunset.
