"Skip the beach and tube!" The lazy river tubing right was the highlight of our Bachelorette weekend adventure! Earl & Julie were extremely accommodating and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and welcome by picking us up at our AirbnB, renting us coolers for food and beverages, tubes, and helping us through every step of the day. Highly recommend going through Earl and Julie, they are pros and made the entire process stress free and enjoyable! The ride took about 3 hours, but packing a full cooler and snacks and won't want it to end!

"Girl Scout Troop and Boy Scout Crew River Kayaking and Campout" Excellent service. Mr. Earl and Mrs. Julie provided top notch service from start to finish. They were very knowledgeable about the Edisto River and helped us plan a kayaking excursion for 30 people. Provided kayaks, guides, and quality instruction. They kept us safe and even provided some adventure on the 8 mile trip. We stayed overnight at their outpost and some of our troop members called it "glamping"! Beach volleyball, super clean play areas, and a lovely hangout place to relax! The troop agrees this is the place to go every year!

"Excellent, professional service" We utilized this company for shuttle services for an off season camping trip. Services were good, staff was friendly and helpful. We were doing a two night camping trip on the river and the guide even came to check on us by boat the first night! Good people, highly recommended.

"Excellent hospitality from a family business and a beautiful kayak trip." My son and I very much enjoyed our experience with Edisto River Adventures.Off the beaten path (which is what you seek!) this family run business goes out of their way to ensure your experience is the best. Earl and Julie and their two sons have built for themselves not only a good business, but a reputation for hospitality and excellent service.

"Relax and Enjoy" Had a blast, it was relaxing and the staff made you feel like a part of the family. My wife and I are planning a trip next weekend to bring our adult kids back. Thanks to J and the family for making our adventure a very pleasant one.

"Amazing trip" Went on this adventure with my best friend and my 10 year old daughter. We had such an amazing time. The owner and employees were fabulous. Very helpful and extremely nice. It’s very relaxing. We just leaned back and enjoyed the scenery and the beautiful weather. We will definitely be doing this again when we return to South Carolina.

"Little Slice Of Paradise" Had the best time with my mom and sister. They get you set up with everything you need to have an enjoyable float down the river. They drop you off at a great starting point at Givhans Ferry State Park. Love the tube that holds your cooler. Was able to snack and drink while floating.Then when we got back we were invited to hang out for the day on their beautiful property. Where we continued to swim, sunbath, and I even hung up my hammock by the water. We were treated like family and made to feel at home. Family run business and it shows. Will definitely be bringing the whole family out soon

"Great Family Outdoor Outing" The whole family with some friends too made an afternoon trip down the river in kayaks. Seems to be a family run business and not a big box outfit, which is what we hoped for! Great service, very helpful, treated us like family (in a good way), did all the hard work (except paddling on the river LOL). This was my first time kayaking and enjoyed every minute of it. My arms were a little sore from the workout paddling, but worth the exercise keeping up with the kids. I was glad my kids had kayaked before, so I had sunscreen and bug spray and swimming shorts. There a few good swimming areas/beaches along the way, so come prepared to have fun! We highly recommend this place and location. Our family will be back again

"Great day on a peaceful river!" Very knowledgeable owner who is personable, cares about safety and cares about making sure we had fun. He pointed out things to look for on our stand up paddle river trip, supplied us with very good equipment, and gave great directions.

A perfect way to spend a lazy day on the river. Earl and his family are great, super helpful. The whole process was super easy, we showed up and had us loaded up, drove us to the drop in point and we were on the river in no time. River was great, slow, lazy, safe, and so much fun for the kids. They got to float and swim all by themselves while the parents kept an eye from a safe distance while enjoying some adult conversation. A bit off the beaten path, but that was actually a huge bonus. Highly recommended.

Fantastic experience with Edisto River Adventure. They shuttled us upstream in a timely manner and with plenty of helpful advice/information. Their son came through on a jet ski about 1/2 way through our paddle to make sure we were okay. Earl came up in a jet ski and arranged for us to get out a little early which was a tremendous help!! Will definitely use these guys again when we head this way for another paddle or tube. (And perhaps a slightly shorter trip next time!

Hands down great customer service, great price, and peaceful camping. Nice beach area to put the kids in the river or set off in your kayak. Shuttle service was provided to take us and our kayaks and all our gear to a boat landing up the river so we didn’t have to park at boat landings and leave our vehicles unattended. We set off the next day and ended miles down the river and we shuttle back to camp as well. They have a nice fire pit area to hang out around and plenty of room for tents and hammocks!

Beautiful riverfront outpost and excellent service. They provided all the equipment and shuttle services to two different launch sites. The guides were keen on our safety, taught paddling skills, and kept us on schedule! We camped overnight at their Outpost. Amenities were perfect for our large group! Kids had a blast playing in the river. Beach volleyball was a big hit! Mr. Earl and Mrs. Julie are the best!
