We couldn’t have asked for a better day on the river. Our tour guide was so informative. Even though the birds have migrated except for a very large blue heron and the alligators were snuggled in their November place , it was a terrific tour. I highly recommend this tour. I would like to thank the tour guide for his assistance with my handicapped husband. He is top notch all around great guide.

Had a great river tour of the Waccamaw River. Despite not seeing any Osprey (it was after they migrated south) or alligators, the time was well spent and extremely informative and enjoyable. Did see some great fall colors on the river. We’d probably do it again in the summer.

The guide was very interesting and knowledgeable. While the birds had migrated south and the alligators were starting to hibernate we did enjoy the tour and found it very interesting. Will come back in the summer to see the wildlife!

Tour guide was very knowledgeable and adjusted to the season (birds had flown south). Boat was comfortable and ride smooth. Appreciated the sitting area while we waited to board. The drink and souvenir house is nice on a hot day

The guido was extremely knowledgable. He knew the history of the river and he knew the wildlife s habits. Highly highly recommended. It is ashame that the likes of PITA forced the nearby Waccamaw Zoo to close.
