ABOUT CHARLESTON SUP SAFARIS
Charleston SUP Safaris has been voted the best stand-up paddle company in Charleston for three years running and has been internationally recognized as a leader in the industry. We are Charleston’s original paddle board company, leading over 3,000 paddlers through Folly Beach’s waterways over the past seven years.
Learn how to paddle board with the experts on the beautiful Folly River and let us guide you through the salt marsh ecosystem searching for local wildlife. We offer stand-up paddle board eco-tours, river and surf lessons, rentals, SUP yoga, fitness, paddle board sales, and summer camps.
Charleston SUP Safaris specializes in large groups, family outings, bachelor or bachelorette parties, corporate team building events, and special occasions. Stop by our shop and our professionally certified guides will get you outfitted with Board Works paddle boards and carbon fiber paddles.
Our passion and sole focus is paddle boarding. Before your trip, our lifeguard certified guides conduct proper ground school instruction and in-water paddle training, ensuring safe, fun, and exciting trips. Whether you’re looking for an invigorating flat water paddle through our estuaries or are interested in catching ocean waves, we love the water and want to share “The Stoke” with our customers. Come check us out! Everybody’s learning how with the paddle board experts – Charleston SUP Safaris.
On top of providing fun and adventure, we also like to give back to Folly and the surrounding communities. Over the years we’ve partnered with organizations such as The Wounded Warrior Project, Warrior Surf Foundation, Youth 2 Ocean, and Surfers Healing to put on races, river sweeps and fun events that have raised both money and awareness. For example, our Shamrock SUP Race and SUPer Scary SUP Race (watch video) have raised over $22,500 for local charities over the past 10 years. Lastly, we believe in environmental sustainability and have been listed as one of the top 5 eco-friendly SUP companies in America.
