Mission Statement

Our mission is to promote environmental education about the importance of South Carolina’s most vital natural treasure – the salt water estuaries. Through exploration of these estuaries we aim to educate locals and visitors alike about the beauty and natural resources that we are so lucky to enjoy here in the Lowcountry. Charleston Outdoor Adventures is dedicated to the preservation of South Carolina’s natural wetlands and the wildlife that have made it their home. We believe that environmental education is strongly gained through firsthand experience and exploration of coastal ecosystems; it is this belief that guides us as we strive to create an experience that will influence the hearts and minds of all of our adventurers.
