Couples and river guides glide through scenic waterways in search of wildlife views and serene experiences in Get Your Gear On’s Very Special Days river tours. Partnered passengers take a seat inside an intimate canoe and drift along the Congaree River, an aquatic highway that careens through warm urban areas, tree-littered landscapes, and Cupid’s clandestine archery-practice range. The city’s retired lock, once used to usher commercial transports from river to port, now bestows paddlers with a historical lane to partake in personal journeys, eventually placing groups at the Thomas Newman landing. The approximately two-hour adventure is easily navigable by boaters of any experience level, and canoes can be outfitted with stability outriggers to increase passenger balance and thwart the boat-tipping pranks of date-crashing cousins.
Get Your Gear On
With a passion for the great outdoors, the outfitters at Get Your Gear On provide equipment and instruction for navigating trails and waterways. While leading groups, expert guides glide through scenic locales in search of wildlife views and serene experiences. Their canoe trips drift along the warm urban areas and tree-littered landscapes that run along the Congaree River, and their stand-up-paddleboard rentals allow guests to view the banks of Lake Murray from a perspective previously exclusive to sightseeing mermen. They also offer cycling equipment and maintenance along with hiking gear for dry climates, snowy landscapes, and rooms where the sink has been left on all night.
