Cypress Swamp Kayaking at Middleton Place


The 2013 swamp paddling season is here! February through the April is the typical season for exploring the bottomland swamps that are so closley connected to the lore and mystery of the South Carolina lowcountry.  This guided trip wanders through the maze of towering cypress and tupelo trees that give you the feeling of stepping back in time. Stable hybrid tandem (2 person) kayaks will serve as your vessel for exploring the vast 1,100 acre wilderness area. Barred Owls, Red-shouldered hawks, otters, wood ducks, wild turkeys, and a variety of woodpeckers are just a few of the species that make thier home here. We are now accepting reservations beginning February 15th-April 30th 2013. Being a limited paddling window and small group sizes, spots fill up quick, so pre-book your trip for 2013 season.   Trips will meet at Middleton Inn registration building before the short shuttle to swamp site. Allow for 3 hour time commitment. On water time is @ 2.5 hours depending on pace.  typical tour times 9:30am-11:30am or 1pm - $65pp
