Waccamaw NWR has endless opportunities for canoeing, kaking, & boating. In fact, many feel that the best way to see the Refuge is from the water. The Great Pee Dee & Waccamaw Rivers have been designated by South Carolina as Scenic Rivers. These two rivers converge in the heart of the Refuge to form a thriving estuary full of wildlife & beautiful low-country vistas.

There are canoe & kayak launching facilities located at Cox Ferry Recreation Area & the Visitor Center. The Refuge does not have its own motorboat launching facilities; however, there are many public & private launching facilities located along the Great Pee Dee & Waccamaw Rivers.
