Shem Creek opens up into Charleston Harbor just between Fort Sumter and Pinckney Island. It is usually super tranquil and a great place to go paddleboarding or kayaking as long as a shrimp boat doesn't come in to dock as you're paddling by. The shrimp boats bring dozens of sea birds intent on getting a free meal.
On the other hand, the creek is full of dolphins and they usually follow the shrimp boats around, too.
I guess there's really never a bad time for some time on the water in and around Shem Creek! For the less adventurous, there are several fantastic restaurants lined up along the creek as well.
