Established in 2009
Charleston Outdoor Adventures was founded by Joe Lotts who spent 16 years in the outdoor guiding industry before deciding to branch out on his own. With more than a decade of experience on local waters and a university degree in wilderness leadership and experiential education, Joe possesses a deep understanding of the region’s stunning wildlife. His dedication to environmental education, awareness and stewardship inspire our guides and guests to value the spectacular nature of coastal South Carolina.
