Getting out on the water is one of the top activities when you visit Georgetown, whether it’s a low-impact paddle on a gentle blackwater river, a ghost tour in the historic district or an offshore charter for some serious fishing. Of course, you can also head up Highway 17 and play some of the best golf courses in the Grand Strand.

Tours
Island Picnic Cruise takes you out for a picnic basket lunch on a barrier island. During your visit, you can look for seashells and driftwood.

Swamp Fox Tours offers tram tours of the historic district where you’ll learn the history of Georgetown spanning almost 300 years.

Cap’N Rod’s Lowcountry Tours has several water trips on its schedule. Choose from a plantation river tour, Shell Island tour or an evening harbor tour.

Golf
Not sure where to play? Start by checking out the Waccamaw Golf Trail. Below are a couple of excellent options:

Caledonia Golf & Fish Club offers two highly rated courses—Caledonia, built on the grounds of a former rice plantation, and True Blue.

Pawleys Plantation is a testy Jack Nicklaus Signature Course.

Willbrook Plantation has a beautiful, shorter layout rated as a great course for shorter hitters

TPC Myrtle Beach is the only golf course along the Grand Strand to be awarded five stars by Golf Digest magazine.
