NATURE OF A SOUTHERN RIVERPlan to visit Waccamaw River Tours during your Myrtle Beach vacation using our convenient Myrtle Beach trip itinerary builder website.
With Waccamaw River Tours, you will explore by boat the beautiful cypress lined Waccamaw River, Intracoastal Waterway and its creeks/swamp; in search of birds, and other wildlife that inhabit these southern waters along the untouched National Wildlife Refuge. The majesty of the moss lined river is breathtaking and the peacefulness of this natural area is appealing to all. Large osprey nest can be seen along the river. You also may see heron, egrets, cormorants, ducks, turtles and alligators. You’ll be greeted by roaming peacocks and gaze upon exotic animals such as buffalo, zebra, fallow deer, emus, and sheep on the drive to & from our docks at the back of the Waccatee Zoo. Waccamaw River Tours is a separate business from the Zoo. Parking is free. Learn about the history of this river and surrounding areas. It is a historic and educational exploration of nature for all ages.
Waccamaw River Tours is the brain child of Capt. Rick and Kim. Their adventurous spirits, love of the water (sailing, kayaking, and snorkeling) and nature (hiking) melted together in the creation of these river tours. The beauty of this river is a medicine that soothes the heart and heals the soul. We hope you‘ll join us for a River Adventure of Nature!

Our group enjoyed the river tour so much. Our captains & tour guides, Sid & Michele Clark did an amazing job of explaining the history of the river and wildlife. They knew the exact spots to take us to capture some amazing photos. I highly recommend Waccamaw River Tours!
Great place and simple and straight to the point. Regular Joe's just like everyone else. And willing to answer any and all questions. We got stuck one time 🤣 (I still think they were joking )but got undone pretty easily. It honestly made the trip even more worth while. Thanks guys!!! We hope we see y'all again!
This is a must do attraction when visiting Myrtle Beach! Captain Sid is so knowledgeable about this section of the intercostal waterway’s animals, plants, and history. We saw lots of native species and even say an osprey that caught a fish! Captain Michelle is an excellent driver and so kind. Children are welcome to join. The boat is so clean and comfortable. Make sure to get some local honey made only I. The swamp at their office.
We loved this tour!!! Fun and educational. The boat was very comfortable and clean. The experience was just much more than what we expected and it was worth every penny. The relationship these guys have with the wildlife on the river is amazing. And yes we got to see 🐊 for real.
What a great experience, a fun cruise up the river for everyone. Bella was an unexpected treat. Very friendly staff nice little souvenir store. Take your bug spray. It's not too bad on the water but in the coves there can be some bugs.
