What People are Saying...
...ABOUT THE TOURS....
Hi Ralph! Thank you so much for the wonderful trip! I
just smile when I think of it! You were an awesome tour guide & we
had a blast. When we get back I plan to write a great review on trip Advisor.
Love the beautiful pics!
We just returned home. The kayak trip was a highlight of our vacation.
Thanks for the pictures
Dear Ralph: The pictures turned out great. Thanks so much!
The kayak trip was a highlight of our trip
We had a fantastic time and we did get to see dolphins so my wife was
happy. She is telling everyone that the kayak trip was the most enjoyable
activity during our time in Charleston.
Kayaking with Ralph Earhart - I am not an outdoors-type person by any
stretch of the imagination. My husband recently started kayaking and I
had read very good reviews of Ralph Earhart on here, so I told him to
set something up. We did a 3 hour trip on the Edisto River/through rice
fields/ending on Penny Creek. I had never been kayaking before and was
pretty nervous but I was at ease as soon as I met Ralph. I loved the trip.
It was a highlight of the vacation. Highly recommended! I saw things I
never would have seen otherwise. It was very "serene" also as
Ralph described it.
Ralph, the photos are terrific!! Thanks for sending them and thanks so
much for taking us out. We had a blast!! Sam went on and on to her friends
later in the day about how much fun she had and how Mr. Ralph told us
pirate stories. I also enjoyed our trip and hearing about the pirates.
It makes for a very entertaining paddle. I look forward to another trip
ABOUT THE BOOK ---------------------------------------------------------------.
I consider it an honor to do this endorsement for
the updated version of Ralph's book "Kayak Charleston". This
version offers a more precise and detailed reading of the rivers and creeks
in and around the low country. He also provides accurate means of directions
by including GPS waypoints to help us locate landings and finding our
way on the water. Ralph is a member of the LowCountry Paddlers who has
taken on extra duties as Treasurer and Trip Planning Committee Chairman.
I am glad to know Ralph not only as a fellow paddler, but as a good friend
It’s hard to imagine a better guide to all
the fantastic paddling routes in and around Charleston than the first
edition of Kayak Charleston, but Ralph has outdone himself this time by
catering to all the gadget lovers out there. The updated version of this
great guidebook now has GPS locations for many of the guide’s featured
trips. Now there is precise direction to your favorite paddling spot even
when that “red on green marker in the middle of the Edisto”
is missing or one of our many hurricanes comes along and removes the large
tree you once used to find your favorite lunch spot! Thanks again, Ralph,
for providing an ever increasing population of LowCountry outdoor enthusiasts
the maps, tips and tricks for which to enjoy a wonderful paddling adventure!

Hi Ralph...just want to again say many thanks for the
great trips in the past month or so....Hutchinson Island, Santee-Chicken
Creek, and Horseshoe Creek today. I have truly enjoyed the trips ...they
have been well worth crawling out of bed very early and driving the distance...am
looking forward to the next one...You are a great trip organizer and leader
and I have learned to enjoy lunch literally in the water!!!
Thanks again for all your efforts...Jan Modjeski (Murrels Inlet,
I want you to know how much I enjoyed your book. We recently spent
spring break at Folly Beach. My son and I went kayaking on 3 different
occasions in the ACE basin using your book as a guide. We had only kayaked
on the lakes here in the Upstate of SC, so tides, alligators and rice
canals were all new experiences.
Your directions to the landings were great. The tide predictors worked
out great. The trips were accurately described. We used your book, a handheld
GPS, and a Coastal Expeditions map and every trip went off without a hitch.
We are looking forward to returning and doing some more of the trips you
have descibed. For your information, the folks here at Half-Moon Outfitters
in Greenville recommended your book and the map.
Thanks for providing such a great resource.
