Ashley River State Scenic Corridor at Middleton Place

Situated in the middle of a 22 mile stretch that represents the lowcountrys only State Scenic River Corridor, this paddle provides a glimpse into the past that makes this river so significant to Charleston's history. Our naturalist guides will provide interpretation about the diverse flora and fauna, and rich cultural history of the Ashley river.

The tour will meet at the lodge at the Middleton Inn. Children must be accompanied by an adult in a tandem kayak. Reservations are required. Approximate tour time is 2 hours.
