Kayak Trips and Tours

Kayak Tours

Come explore the amazing creation that abounds in the surrounding salt marshes and estuaries of the Lowcountry. Whether you are kayaking peacefully through the tidal creeks or on a high energy paddle with family and friends, you will experience the abundant wildlife and breathtaking views that surround St. Christopher.  You can observe foraging shorebirds looking for a snack and curious dolphins coming up for air literally feet from your boat! Because of St. Christopher’s location along the North Edisto River (directly across from Botany Island and the Botany Bay Plantation WMA), it is the perfect spot to explore the unspoiled beauty of the Lowcountry!

Overnight Kayaking and Camping Trips

If you yearn for adventure or a meaningful encounter with the Lord, join Outdoor Encounters for a weekend wilderness kayak trip. The goal of this program is to foster the faith of our guests, while instilling an appreciation and understanding of God’s creation. You can encounter the Lord in a very powerful way as you stretch yourself physically, mentally, and spiritually while being surrounded by the majesty of His creation. We believe wilderness trips are a metaphor for how God has called Christians to live. God calls us to live a life of purpose, adventure and community. We are called to live in His presence. St. Christopher is a place to come and do just that. We offer outings for all skill levels and tailor trips to the needs, desires, and abilities of each group. Outdoor Encounters provides adequate training, gear, and food for the duration of the trip. Excursions are ideal for 6-10 people- a great bonding experience for youth, church small groups, and even corporate teams. We accept individuals depending on availability and interest. Only high school age and older are permitted to kayak without additional adult supervision. We can also develop special trips for your families as well.
