I will second everything that's been previously written. This program is excellent. From the accommodations to the meals to the guides to the paddling destinations, all top of the line. Jody, April and Elizabeth went out of their way to get to know each individual participant and make this a great experience for everyone. Their knowledge of the history, flora and fauna of the area made this much more than just a kayaking trip. If you enjoy kayaking, do this trip!! Leslie Winona, MN 3/23/14 - 3/28/14

If you love to kayak, sleep in a beautiful house and eat fabulous food this is the program for you. April and Jody guided us through lovely and unique water venues, each different and interesting. This is the best kayaking and nature trip I have ever had the pleasure of taking. They made us feel like family.

A wonderful kayaking trip.The area is well known to the guides and they are flexible in choosing the appropriate paddle for the weather, tides, wind etc. They are also very adept at making everyone feel welcome and included.The smaller size group allows the group to become better aquainted with one another. Both the accommodations and food were top notch.

The guides are most accommodating and consider weather and tidal variances each day to create a pleasant outing. They are extremely knowledgeable about the area and strive to vary the experiences to present a most educational program. Accommodations and meals were top-notch!

This is a wonderful trip for active folks who enjoy kayaking in a variety of environments from salt water marshes to tidal rivers to evocative swamps. Great leaders who will give you a solid introduction to the low country, its birdlife and natural history, and its history and traditions. It's such a great experience that I've done this program four times! Sandy Roche

This is one of my all-time favorite Road Scholar trips. Super accommodations, absolutely wonderful food including a traditional low-country boil and oyster roast. Very comfortable, welcoming staff and the guides (April and Jody) are tops; a joy to paddle with. If you're a kayaker, this one's for you!

In good weather, decent river guides look good. In bad weather, however, superb river guides shine. Jody and April more than met the challenge of the 40° Nor’easter that dominated our paddling, plus they educated us on the flora, fauna, geology and history of the Lowcountry. They brought enough extra clothes for a small army, introduced us to local artists, sang and played for us. Jan, the trip organizer, likewise excelled in enthusiasm and helpfulness. Vernon, our chef, made our meals to perfection and was, moreover, as interesting and warm-hearted as his creations. I loved “Kayaking the Low Country!” Wherever they were – Jody, April, Jan and Vernon – they brought the sun. Sandra Lambert, Providence, RI
