The two RV Gypsies at Waccamaw River Tours

June 14, 2023

The two RV Gypsies took a 1-1/2-hour narrated Nature and Wildlife boat tour of Myrtle Beach’s beautiful cypress-lined and moss-draped via the Intracoastal Waterway and its swamps. It was not their first swamp boat ride (in various places) nor their only time seeing alligators of course, but it was something to do in the area. Nothing seen here was new to the two RV Gypsies, but still, it was a nice enough tour. But they would not do it again. The cost for the two RV Gypsies on this date was $67.73.

The two RV Gypsies (and plenty of other guests that made a full boat) boarded the boat. The two RV Gypsies chose a seat in the back of the boat, which was a good choice because that is where the guide stood to narrate the trip, while his female assistant drove the boat. The guide told about the history of these rivers, the Waccamaw area, and its wildlife along the untouched National Wildlife Refuge.

The moss-lined river was peaceful in its natural setting. Several large osprey nests were along the river with the birds in the nests. There were large osprey nests along the river.

Karen Duquette got a great video of this alligator as it launched itself very quickly into the water., But she does not know how to post videos here.
