This was my first time paddle-boarding and I could not have chosen a better company. Trent and Meghan were great instructors. I would now feel comfortable getting a board and going out again.The trip was very scenic.

The whole family had an excellent time surfing with the guidance of Trent and Meghan. Well worth the instructional time and the extra hour to hang out on the waves.

If you are looking to Paddleboard while down in Myrtle Beach I highly recommend Carolina Warerman. It was me, my Husband and five kids. We toured the Waccamaw river. Trent and Megan were fun, personable and informative. We had play time and even attempted headstands....More

We checked out other paddleboard companies and found this one to be the best. It’s an awesome eco-tour that they offer and you will learn a lot. Highly recommend over others

My fifteen year old and myself went out paddle boarding for the first time and Trent and Meghan were extremely patient and encouraging! They even directed us there when my gps went out. Loved the nature and all that this company is trying to accomplish!!

Absolutely! It is so much fun for all ages! We spend time giving instruction about safety, proper paddling technique, and then accompany our guests for a 2 hour paddle through the Waccamaw National Wildlife Refuge.

Response from Trent V | Property representative |
That really depends on personal preference! Our favorite time for lessons is usually 2 hours before - 2 hours after the high tide. Mornings usually have calmer winds and nicer weather though! Mornings for sure!
