Activities and Excursions To Take Part In During Your Charleston Vacation

What to Do at Wild Dunes Resort  

When planning your family vacation, keeping everyone of all ages entertained during your stay can often be the biggest hurdle. Here at Wild Dunes Resort, we offer a myriad of activities and excursions to keep your family vacation fun for the young - and the young at heart - at every step.  

Whether you’re looking for relaxation, adventure, or a bit of both, you’ll find it all at our oceanfront resort near Charleston, South Carolina. Read on to discover what your family will experience when you vacation at Wild Dunes Resort.  

Water Sports & Boating: Take advantage of our location on a barrier island by exploring the Intercoastal Waterway, lowcountry marshes, and the sparkling Atlantic Ocean. With guided tours and private lessons, you will experience some of the best kayaking, paddleboarding, and boating that the southeast has to offer. A guest favorite is the Dolphin Discovery Sunset Tour, a naturalist-led excursion along the South Carolina coast.  

Gone Fishing: Our salt marsh ecosystem is nutrient rich, which is perfect for catching redfish, speckled trout, flounder, and more. Love fresh seafood? Learn to catch crabs the old fashioned way on a blue crabbing expedition, which is a fantastic trip for the whole family. If catch and release is more your style, get up close and personal with small sharks on our shark fishing expedition. Younger fisherman will enjoy the creek fishing Barrier Island Eco Tour, where all gear is provided and guides follow the fish to guarantee more catches.  

Explore Charleston: Take a short drive to downtown Charleston and experience the history and culinary expertise of our city, named the #1 City in North America by Travel + Leisure magazine in 2015. Start your journey with a carriage tour of the historic district, where you’ll be awed by the city’s cathedrals, lush gardens, and stunning mansions.  

Great food is just as much a part of the charm of Charleston as the history, so savor the authentic flavors of the South on a culinary tour. Whether you prefer the mobile cocktail party of the Mixology Tour or the intimate Chef’s Kitchen Walking Tour, your palette will be tantalized by the flavors of Charleston.    

Wild Dunes Resort Activities: After a day of exploring the island or eating your way through Charleston, your family may want to take it easy at our resort.  Relax poolside while the kid’s enjoy educational (and fun!) activities at the Dune Bug Club, and search for buried treasure on our Pirate Treasure Hunt. In the evening, you can have a cornhole set delivered to your door for a family game night, or join other guests for community Bingo and outdoor movie screenings.  

Long days fishing for trout, happy hours exploring the best restaurants in Charleston, warm evenings playing games with your loved ones...these are the moments that matter most. Create new moments and memories with the perfect family vacation at Wild Dunes Resort. With so much to do, see, and enjoy - you’ll look forward to returning year after year.
