Folly Beach, Charleston
Sea Kayaking Instruction, Salt Marsh Paddling, Ocean Paddling, Car Camping option in a nice group campground at James Island County Park
Welcome to the Oceans event site. Oceans '21 will take place from James Island, Charleston, SC. Myself and most will likely be staying at James Island County Park, where I have reserved a nice group camping area, and you can elect to take advantage of this when registering, or elect to register and find alternate accommodations. Whatever your current comfort level, a regular ocean sea kayak surfer, or if you are simply aspiring to become a more competent sea kayaker able to handle a wider range of conditions, this event is for you. We will have the ability to keep you in protected flatwater to match your development level, introduce folks to smaller waves inside of inlets, or venture out onto Charleston Harbor and the Atlantic Ocean. As always, the weather controls the ocean's moods, so we don't know exactly what that will look like until we're standing on the beach. Groups will be divided, and go out with instructors based upon their skill levels and interests. We will make an early morning drive to Folly Beach and surrounding waters for Saturday's paddling, and will have access to sound-side channels and salt marsh creeks, Lighthouse inlet to the northeast, Folly inlet to the southwest, and the ocean-front beach. Sunday we will plan to launch from several various options again.
Accomodations: You have the option to elect to camp at James Island County Park. It is a nice group campsite with lots of greenspace for your tents. There are bathrooms and showers at the campground. I have included registration options for an included campsite for Fri, Sat, & Sun, or an option if you would like to plan your own place to stay. If you're camping with us at the group campground, it's already arranged, and there is no need to call the park to arrange anything further. James Island County Park is not organizing the event, it is an Oceans event. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
Meals: Supper on Friday night and Saturday night will be provided. There will be vegetarian options.
