Teachers enjoying our History Tour

Here at Palmetto Outdoors we offer a variety of tours for your enjoyment.  The best part about our tours is that it does not matter if you are a land or water lover, we have got you covered.  Take a trip on one of our Walking Tours and listen as our knowledgeable guides teach you about your own back yard.  Partake in one of our Congaree Trips and glide through the amazing 70 year old hardwood canopies, or join us on a gentle river trip through the old Granby locks.  For an adventurous group, check out our Saluda Trip that includes some whitewater excitement, and our guided trips are fabulous for families or classes. We guarantee to impress you with the secrets hidden in these unique areas. We also offer a Interdisciplinary Tour Program which is available on an individualized basis for organizations, educational institutions, and home schools.
