Would you recommend this service? Yes
Additional Comments: We would highly recommend Captain Steve's River Tours. We took the tour along the Waccamaw River, which is very scenic. We saw Sandy Island and several plantations. Captain Steve is very knowledgable about the area, history, and wildlife. He shared fascinating information with us. Captain Steve obviously loves this area and enjoys sharing the information with others. Told us ahead of time when picture perfect views were coming up. His boat is beautiful and so comfortable. He answered all questions asked of him. He slowed down or stopped so we could take in views of the wildlife that we saw (osprey and an alligator). So happy that we stumbled upon his tour.

Additional Comments: Captain Steve made sure our group of 7 had a wonderful day on the river! I think anyone of any age would enjoy this tour. We saw beautiful plantation houses and rice fields, learned about the history and wildlife on the river, and floated through Sandy Island. What I loved most about this tour is that it didn't feel like a we were on a tour boat, it felt like we were just cruising down the river with a friend who wanted to show us the area. 10/10 recommend.

Additional Comments: I was in South Carolina to visit my son and wanted to do something fun. I had never seen Pawleys Island and wanted to take a day trip and I found Captains Steve's. It was my lucky day. We took the Plantation Tour on a cool day in February. Captain Steve showed us a great time that day. He knows the history of the area and fills the two plus hours with lots of information. His boat is boat is top of the line. Would definitely plan another trip with Captain Steve - maybe to Georgetown next. You should definitely not miss a trip with Captain Steve!

This is a scenic, relaxing, and fun tour of the river and creeks.
Yes
We had a great tour on a sunny Saturday February morning. The river was smooth as glass as we headed out onto the Waccamaw River for close to a 3-hour tour (which flew by). Just being out on the river, seeing bald eagles, an osprey on her nest and the beauty of the low country was relaxing and fun. Captain Steve has a tremendous fund of knowledge about the history of the numerous plantations we passed as well as Sandy Island and the local area in general. He obviously has prepared well for his tour and we enjoyed not only his historical information but also his many stories, including those of Francis Marion (aka the Swamp Fox). Boating through the creeks, between the old rice fields, connecting the rivers was great. His custom pontoon boat is spotless with comfortable seats. Although not running a regular schedule at this time of year, he was very accommodating when my husband and I gave him a call to arrange a tour. We're glad we did - we loved it.

Our group of four had a wonderful time with Captain Steve. The natural beauty of the area, and his knowledge of the local history worked together so well to provide us with a true picture of the wildlife and people both past and present.

Captain Steve provided our family a very unforgettable time on the river. It was a relaxing tour as well as educational. Our family was visiting SC and knew little of the history. Captain Steve made the experience fun and interesting. It proved to be one of the highlights of their visit. Everyone in the group says "hi" to Captain Steve!
