Recently we went out on the Ashley River with Coastal Expeditions (Click here for Coastal) viewing the marsh and inlets from the water.
Old Middleton Plantation is the jumping off spot, which makes perfect sense because it has been a steward of the land here for several hundred years.
Coastal Expeditions offers this educational Kayak tour guided by naturalists to better understand the ecosystem here by going right into marshlands.
Below, the long gardens of Middleton can be seen behind the Kayakers and grasses.
OK, full disclosure; at no time did I paddle around in a Kayak. A Coastal flat boat followed at a safe distance so we could provide them with photographs for the Middleton tours.
Coastal Expeditions provides guides / tours to many Lowcountry outdoor locations. If you want to visit ‘the other’ South Carolina or need guides to remote areas for research or educational projects they are the obvious choice.
