what we believe

A Deep connection to the land and one another

The best way to experience the Lowcountry is to lose yourself in it. Paddle along its creeks. Seek solace under its pines. Taste an oyster still salty from the sea. As you watch the day disappear into shades of violet and red, feel that pure and honest pride, that inexplicable thing that is a deep connection to the land and to one another. This is the Soul of the Lowcountry and it will stay with you forever.

SOUL is committed to preserving this energy and to sharing these experiences with family, friends and the community. We invite you to join us as we continue to celebrate and conserve the Soul of the Lowcountry.
