There’s nothing quite like relaxing on a calm intercoastal waterway with just you, your thoughts, and beautiful scenery abound. Sure, you can rent a boat and worry about water traffic, gas money, and the other expenses and stress that go with piloting a boat, or you could rent a paddleboard on Isle of Palms for a fun and relaxing experience. Not only is paddle boarding excellent for exploring inlets and waterways that are too small for larger watercraft, but they are also a great source of physical exercise!

Why Go Paddle Boarding on Isle of Palms?
Paddleboarding on Isle of Palms is a great way to exercise while seeing all of the beautiful scenery of South Carolina’s barrier islands. You can paddle on the calm waters up and down the intercoastal waterway. If you head south to Inlet Creek in between IOP and Sullivan’s Island, the water has very small waves coming in from the ocean, and you have a good chance at seeing a dolphin bobbing around in the current. You can also paddle through the tiny marsh coves and inlets during high tide, where you can spot a variety of birds and plant life. Whether you’re searching for a fun way to work out or just wanting to enjoy the sun and water, paddleboarding on Isle of Palms is a fantastic experience.
