Are you an experienced paddler and ready to explore Folly Creek by yourself?

You can rent a kayak or paddle board from us and launch them straight from our private ramp for your own 2 or 3 hour adventure. When you rent from Castaway you will be given a map of the local waterway and told all essential information about the wind and tides.
WE DELIVER to Folly Beach and James Island FOR FREE so that you don’t have to worry about it! See our Deliveries page for 1-7 day rental info.

  • Please wear closed toe, water resistant, shoes if possible. Oysters are everywhere in our local waterways.
  • Synthetic or fast drying clothes are preferable since you will most likely be getting wet. Jeans and cotton shirts are not our friends here at Castaway.
  • Please bring sunscreen, bug repellent (mosquitos and gnats are Charleston locals too), sun glasses, a snack or lunch if on a long adventure, drinking water, and a water resistant camera if you want to risk it**
  • On weekends during the summer there is traffic going out to the beach so make sure to plan accordingly
  • In the low country winds tend to pick up in the mid afternoon, therefore mornings are usually better as well as sunset time – this also applies for mid summer when it is very hot – get out early and beat the heat!
  • Larger groups please carpool if possible
