Experience The Lodge

Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP)

SUP Safaris: Stand up paddleboarding is the perfect activity for one or a large group to experience. For the beginner, take a lesson and a tour, or for the more experienced, rent a board and go on your own excursion on the Folly River and see dolphins, egrets, storks, eagles... just to name a few of the wildlife in their natural habitat. All of this is located just steps from Folly River Lodge.

Flipper Finders: Yes, flippers as in dolphins. The Folly River is teaming with wildlife and dolphins in their natural habitat. Pack a lunch, some waters, sunscreen, and hat, and set out on a kayak adventure to see the gorgeous waterways and estuaries off of Folly Beach.
