Eclipse Kayak and SUP Tours - Shem

We have 4 paddles planned to observe history, select the one that meets your needs.

Option 1: Paddle out Sunday, August 20th, set up camp and enjoy the pristine beach. Soak up the sunset fireside with the subtle sounds of breaking waves. Rise early for a dip in the ocean or sip coffee and listen to gulls and royal terns announcing their arrival. We will begin to watch as the moon approaches. Following the eclipse, the group will paddle back sharing amazing memories.

Option 2: The tides are perfect for a day trip to Capers to meet up with the overnight campers and experience history in the path of totality.

Want a great view but only have a few hours to spare? Option 3 or 4 might be the fit you're looking for.

Option 3: A 3-hour kayak tour on historic Shem Creek.

Option 4: A 2-hour SUP tour on Shem.
