Canoeing, Kayaking, & Boating
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 River has been designated by South Carolina as a State Scenic River. The portion of the Waccamaw River that runs throught the Refuge has been designated as a National Water Trail by the National Park Service. These two rivers converge in the heart of the Refuge to form a thriving estuary full of wildlife & beautiful low-country vistas.
