Gold & Gems Family Adventure - SC
The Low Country of South Carolina, including foremost the ACE BASIN region, is a mecca of wildlife to be enjoyed by the whole family. From kayaking to bicycling and hiking, this family adventure is a perfect active weekend getaway!
Ever wondered what an alligator really looks like in the wild? Why dolphins are so friendly? From the calm waters of the Ashepoo River and a thrilling boat ride from island to island to the protected forests of the ACE BASIN, opportunities to see unusual wildlife in the Low Country are plentiful. This excursion blends a range of activities (walking through historic Beaufort and Savannah, river kayaking, and biking the forested trails in a protected wildlife management area) with exciting educational components - learn about the history of the South through the compelling narrative of our special guides and outfitters, each with a passion for and knowledge on a different area of interest, ranging from paranormal activity to the 'Carolina Gold' rice culture. Gators and dolphins and boats, oh my!
Your typical day is based around fun activities designed for the whole family. After fueling up on a warm breakfast, the crew will take off on the activity of the day, sometimes focused purely on fun, other times adding some education and history. We choreograph a perfectly balanced day of time together with time apart. The routes and trails are perfect family distances, with a little extra mileage for those who want to venture further! While our guides are off scavenging around on an adventure with the kids, mom can relax poolside with her book.
Age range, type of group
Our family adventures are designed for families with children ages 7 and older. Family itineraries are special because they transcend different ages, different energy levels, and different motives. They also create different needs, like extra safety precautions, specially trained guides with increased supervision and support, and maybe a smidgen of education sprinkled in with all the fun.
Sleeping and meals
Accommodations reflect the needs of a family. Although we always stay at the region's best accommodations, for family trips we find lodging that includes more family-friendly amenities, like swimming pools, tennis courst, water activities and the like. Knowing that children fly around a million miles an hour, our accommodations have been specifically picked for comfort, fun and proximity to the best trails in the area.
Pets, cell phones, work-related headaches, and grumpy folks are not allowed on this trip.
It's all about time. Wondering where it goes, wishing there were more of it, and sometimes trying to re-capture times gone by. Remember what it felt like to go on a family vacation when you were a child? No worries, just fun with your family, with someone else doing all of the planning and the work. Liberating, huh? Now imagine re-capturing that time, that feeling, by letting someone else take care of all your vacation hassles and planning. We invite you to spend your next vacation on a different sort of time frame - one which we take care of the planning, leaving you the freedom to enjoy time with your family. Nothing is more important to you than your family, and when your family is with us, nothing is more important to us than making sure your family has a great vacation!
All children ages 7-15 receive a 10% discount from the tour cost. A third child staying in the same room with their siblings will recieve a 20% discount.
