  • Conway business owner hopes to launch kayak tours from boat landing

    Richard Laurent, owner of Black River Outdoors, leads his tour group in the Waccamaw River outside of Conway on Thursday, April 27, 2017. Laurent has asked Horry County to let him build and maintain a kayak launch area at Enterprise Road boat landing in exchange for a permit to allow businesses to launch from the landing. He said the sandy launch area would be open to the public. Currently the county does not allow businesses such as Black River Outdoors to launch kayak tours from public boat landings. Laurent said he can use any landing in Georgetown County and the rocky landing at Cox Ferry Lake Recreational Area, which is part of the Waccamaw National Wildlife Refuge.
