SALT Excursions

Travel with SALT!

What’s Next? Senior Adventures in Learning and Travel (SALT), LLC offers local, regional, national, and international travel opportunities for seniors. National and international tours are contracted with Premier World Discovery, so participants will register through them and adhere to their rules regarding travel. Liability waivers will need to be completed for all travel with SALT.

Cruise Questionnaire

Many of you have asked about SALT offering a cruise. We have created a short survey to assess interest and help us narrow down the choices we provide for you. If you are interested in cruising with SALT, please go to this link and answer a few questions that will help us in planning future travel. Thanks!

Regional Overnight Excursions

To register for the overnight excursions, we ask you to send the specified deposit per person to SALT, 1412 Spruce Drive, Surfside Beach, SC 29575 by the deadline established for each trip. Please send your name and contact information, the trip that you wish to go on, and a check made out to SALT. Once we have enough participants who have committed with a deposit, we will book the venues and ask for the balance.

These trips are planned and priced with the assumption that we will have only 10 participants. If more than 10 people submit deposits, we will add the price of a motorcoach and allow registrants to withdraw if that new price is too high. Motorcoach and driver represent an additional $1600-$1800 overall expense a day, so the additional cost will depend upon the total number of people traveling.

May 16-19, The Lighthouses of North Carolina, $750 dbl/pp, deposit $400 by February 24 

On this 4-day adventure, we will visit the seven most famous lighthouses of North Carolina. Our first day, we will visit Oak Island lighthouse, the newest lighthouse in NC, built in 1957, then take the ferry to Bald Head Island to see Old Baldy (1817), and then drive to Harker’s Island where we will spend the night. The next day, we will take the ferry to visit the Cape Lookout lighthouse, built in 1859, then make our way to Cedar Island to catch the ferry to Ocracoke, where we will stay for the night. On the third day, we will visit the Ocracoke (1823) and Cape Hatteras (1873) lighthouses as we make our way up the Outer Banks. Either this afternoon or the next morning, we will visit Bodie Island (1872) and Currituck Beach (1875) lighthouses. Our last night’s lodging will be near Manteo, and we will take the inland route back to Myrtle Beach.

Activity level 4.


May 22-24, Santee State Park Glamping, $249 dbl/pp, deposit $150 by February 24 (room for 2 more!)

Everyone enjoyed our last glamping trip so much that we’ve decided to add another one, this time to Santee State Park, where our fully-furnished rondette cabins will be next to Lake Marion. The park offers 6 hiking trails, a fishing pier (you must have a valid SC license), great bird watching, and a tennis court. Options for boating, shopping, exploring local historical sites, and guided tours are available, but will be at an additional cost and will depend on the interests of the group. The excursion fee covers transportation and lodging. The costs of group meals will be an additional expense, but on the last trip, that only came to $15/person.

Activity level 3-5, depending on the individual’s desire to hike.
