The Full Story

While the Blackwater Swamp Tour will remain mostly the same, you won't have your rockstar guide Luke Pope-Corbett showing you the way. After years of environmental education and advocation from behind the paddle, Luke will be moving on to doing so from behind the lens through his work in media and photography. Keep an eye out as we will be sharing his work and collaborating on future projects. Charleston Kayak Company's long time guide Dan Yost will be taking over operations as Charleston Kayak. Dan Yost founded Youth to Ocean to provide opportunities for underserved youth in water sports, environmental education, and exploration of nature . We are grateful to Luke and Charleston Kayak Company for all the support over the years and for this opportunity. We will strive to provide the same excellent tours and naturalist experience you have come to expect from Charleston Kayak Company. Thank you for sticking with us while we make this transition!
