Since the first days I arrived in Charleston, South Carolina and found friends of my family visiting from Barbados to talk about the historic and cultural connections between the Caribbean islands of my parents and the Carolinas, I have been immersing myself into the the natural and cultural heritage of the area. Each adventure has uncovered amazing stories that shed light on the culture of the south and its roll in the forming who we are in the United States. Exploring the salt marshes, beaches, forests, and blackwater rivers has led to the discovery of enchanted places that most tourist will never see. Learning to interpret nature has opened up a whole new world of discovery and understanding of the flora and fuana and the stories they tell. It has become a passion of mine to share these discoveries and teach these skills to others.
There are many incredible experiences to be had here in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. Nature Week at the Sea View Inn provides a unique family experience in a safe, relaxed atmosphere while providing opportunities to expand a deeper understanding of the area through eco-friendly exploration.

There is nothing commercial here, no cell phones, computers, shopping malls, just laid-back paradise. The Inn takes extra care to be sensitive of the use of energy and water.
- Phenomenal Southern food: You get three delicious, meals a day of authentic southern food cooked and served by the same amazing, homegrown staff who have remained at the Inn for many, many years.
