Paddling the SC coast is now easier than ever!

The South Carolina section of the Southeast Coast Saltwater Paddling Trail extends 295 miles from the Savannah River at the Georgia border through the Carolina Sea Islands, past the port of Charleston, along the Grand Strand, and ends at Little River on the North Carolina border. Points of interest, along with simple to copy latitude/longitude coordinates for the entire trail are free to the public on a new series of S.C. Department of Natural Resources (DNR) web pages.

Get detailed information about public properties throughout the Carolina coast, copy and paste GPS coordinates into your favorite device or online map and there are even photo galleries for many of the points of interest along the way.

The section offers a paddling trail with a diversity of natural and cultural features, and includes every South Carolina coastal habitat type, from tidal waters, marshlands, and swamps to barrier islands, dunes, and beaches. Many cultural sites and places of interest are accessible by kayak including old forts, plantations, fishing villages, port cities, resorts, and many protected wildlife areas.
