Nature Adventures

When learning and fun collide, kayaking is often involved. Teaching children and teens about the natural world can be both exciting and engaging. Nature Adventure’s field trips in Charleston, SC allow campers to explore and observe some of the Lowcountry's bounty. Dolphins, pelicans and shorebirds abound in the saltwater creeks and marshes. Blackwater swamps and alligators provide a backdrop for exploration of the rice culture that made South Carolina wealthy and almost tore the young nation apart. The unique ecology and environment of the Lowcountry comes alive before their eyes, inspiring kids to learn is a keystone of our programs. Program specialists include naturalists, marine biologists, birders, historians, wildlife biologists and ACA-certified kayak guides and instructors.

Canoeing Fun Facts

Ever wonder how a small life jacket can keep your larger body afloat? An object displaces water, which pushes back and causes buoyancy (the more water you displace, the greater the force that pushes back). A life jacket is filled with a very light material, so it can displace a lot of water in comparison to its weight, meaning it will float high on top of the water and keep your head above the surface.

Next time you take a rafting trip, think about the physics involved: learn about how things float, the force and torque from the water and paddle, and the logistics of crossing running water. Most guides can also give you interesting facts about the river in which you are canoeing, its history, and the surrounding wilderness. Don’t stop asking questions!
