October is not the best month to take. At our like this because the birds are mostly gone, and some species are prepping for Winter. However, we were able to get close to a gator, and love the turtles everywhere. It was a great history lesson and a fun, calm journey down the

Our guide was very knowlegeable and kept us laughing. I loved riding through the swamp looking at the cypress draped with Spanish moss and seeing sweetgrass from which baskets are made. We saw turtles and several smaller alligators and one big one. No birds. It is a terrific

The tour itself was very interesting. Rick was an extremely knowledgeable guide. It was late in the season so many of the birds had headed south; that said, Rick was full of interesting facts on the migration habits of several bird species. He also was informative about the

Response from Waccamaw T, Owner at Waccamaw River Nature & Wildlife Tours
Responded 7 Oct 2020
Thank you for your review. We work very hard to give each and every guest a great experience and appreciate your kind words. Wildlife is "wild" and doesn't always cooperate, but we do our very best to find what we can and to educate our guests about the blackwater river ecosystem here in the Myrtle Beach area. We do ask that everyone wear a mask while in our gift shop as it is a very small space, especially when we have a lot of guests. Additionally, we do have Adirondack chairs for our guests to sit in by the river before their trip, which can be moved for social distancing easily and as necessary to accommodate different size groups; we never know if we will have 2 or 6 guests in a group. We have limited our boat to 30 passengers and do suggest guests wear masks while boarding and deboarding if unable to maintain safe social distancing. Of course, if you have COVID concerns please come see us when you feel more comfortable. We are always happy to see you.
