Enjoying Kiawah Island’s Water Adventures

While Kiawah Island is full of many activities to do on the land, there is plenty of adventure found in its beautiful waterways. From fishing excursions to dolphin sight-seeing, Kiawah Island has many activities waiting for you in the water.

The following are our top picks for activities in fishing, wildlife excursions, and kayaking.


1. Family Fishing & Kiawah River Eco Cruise

As a combination of part fishing and part eco tour designed for the entire family, this Family Fishing & Kiawah River Eco Cruise does it all. The guides will be ready to show you everything the Kiawah River has to offer. Tour options include: fishing, crabbing, dolphin and bird watching, cruising the river, walking a deserted beach, or taking a quick dip in the water to cool yourself off.

2. Deep Sea Fishing

Ready to catch a really big fish? Blue water offshore fishing off Kiawah’s coast is a great opportunity to hook into big Wahoo, Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Cobia, Sailfish, King Mackerel, Amberjack and many other offshore species.

3. Near Coastal & Reef Fishing

Action-packed fishing experience perfect for everyone from families to the serious anglers. Near coastal fishing takes place three to seven miles offshore, where you will bottom fish around off shore wrecks and artificial reefs. You are likely to catch large sharks, redfish, weakfish, cobia, black sea bass, triggerfish, spadefish, and many different seasonal species.

Wildlife Excursions

1. Dolphin Encounters

Dolphins are believed to be among the most intelligent animals on earth, and are well known for their playful and carefree nature. Come join us for dolphin encounters as we search inlets, creeks, and marshes for Kiawah’s own inshore dolphin pod. Learn more about their habits and behaviors, getting an up-close and personal experience like no other.

2. Tideland Treasures

Explore the ebb and flow of Kiawah’s surrounding waterways on Tideland Treasures. Home to more than 70,000 life forms, salt marshes are one of our country’s most protected natural resources. Traveling through the salt marshes, try your luck with a cast net and discover creatures beneath the surface in our crab traps. In our search for native wildlife, you’ll be amazed at the breathtaking scenery, abundant bird life and perhaps catch a glimpse of dolphins.


1. Marsh Kayaking

If you’re an independent adventurer and like to set your own pace, marsh kayaking gives you the freedom you’re looking for. This tour leads you through the creeks to reveal what curiosities the marsh has to offer and is geared toward those who are looking to get a little exercise.

2. Guided Kayak Safari Tour
