EP 11: Paddleboarding in Charleston SUP Safaris

Charelston SUP Safari Podcast

Take an eco-tour or SUP Safari in Folly Beach on your next visit to the Charleston, SC area. Today, we chatted with Jon about the safaris that offer dolphin viewing in their natural habitat. They also offer river and surf lessons, rentals, SUP yoga and fitness. I had a pleasure chatting with Jon about his personal journey and what led him to start the company as well as his draw to the southeast after traveling the world and visiting 38 countries.
