While Beaufort, South Carolina is known as a busy city and is home to several United States Marines, it is also home to Beaufort Kayak Tours. You can choose from three different exploration routes, including Historic Beaufort, Salt Marsh Exploration, and Hunting Island. If you choose the Salt Marsh Exploration, keep your eyes peeled for the sight of a bottle-nose dolphin, as they are known to inhabit this area of South Carolina. You can also learn how to throw your own cast net to catch some of the saltwater crabs. The Historic Beaufort tour provides a detailed, narrated excursion of the interesting history that surrounds Beaufort - and you'll never even have to walk the streets to take it all in! Hunting Island explores the tranquil sights of the lagoon surrounding the nearby beach, and is known for the entertainment of jumping mullets.

Here you can experience the two-hour Dolphin Nature Tour which provides a first-hand look at these amazing marine creatures. You can also catch a glimpse of otter and osprey! Please be sure to make advance reservations for this kayaking tour, as space is extremely limited.

Kayaking is the use of a Kayak for moving across water. Over the years, kayaking has evolved into a popular water sport. It is distinguished from canoeing by the sitting position of the paddler and the number of blades on the paddle. A kayak is defined by the International Canoe Federation (the world sanctioning body) as a boat where the paddler faces forward, legs in front, using a double-bladed paddle. Most kayaks have closed decks, although "sit-on-top" and inflatable kayaks are growing in popularity as well[

Eight Primary Classifications of Kayaking:

Polo
Slalom
Whitewater
Surf
Touring/expedition
Light touring/day tripping
Sprint/racing
General recreation

From these primary classifications stem many sub-classes. For example, a fishing kayak is simply a general-recreation kayak outfitted with accessories that make it easier from which to fish. A creek kayak is a certain type of whitewater kayak, designed to handle narrow gully type rivers and falls. Also within these classifications are many levels of performance which further separate the individual models.
