Boating and Paddling at Shem Creek

One of the best ways to explore Shem Creek is aboard a watercraft! Brave the waves with a paddle out to Crab Island and see the native migratory birds. In the distance, you can also enjoy a unique view of iconic Charleston landmarks such as the Ravenel Bridge, Fort Sumter, and the Charleston Harbor.
