  • A "Looping 101" track similar to those seminars offered at our Rendezvous
  • A "Route Briefing" track, also similar to our Rendezvous seminars
  • Time to mingle with Gold Loopers over lunch and receptions
New for this Looper-palooza...more flexibility!  Decide which seminar to attend as they happen, rather than sticking to one track as was the requirement at the last Looper-Palooza.  Click here for the agenda.

Your registration includes:
  • 20 seminars
  • 2 lunches

  • unlimited camaraderie with Great Loop planners, current Loopers, and Gold Loopers.

Event Location
Wild Dunes
Looper-palooza seminars, meals, and sleeping rooms will be housed at Wild Dunes Resort on Isle of Palms, South Carolina, just outside of the world's number one city (ranked by Travel + Leisure), Charleston!

One of Charleston's most beautiful beach resorts, Wild Dunes is just over the sand dunes from the Atlantic Ocean. A short walk over the boardwalk and your toes will be in the sand.

If a little pampering is what you crave, Sand & Sea Day Spa has you covered with everything from massages to manicures. 

The golf enthusiast will find two golf courses recognized as some of the best in the state.

Dining options are endless  with everything from casual beachside dining to classic southern fare at Huey's to an upscale experience at Wild Dune's signature restaurant and bar, Coastal Provisions.

Hotel room rates are $149 per night.

IOP Marina

We are working to secure marina accommodations where the Looper boats can be together and transportation to/from the event can be provided.  In order to finalize this, we need a better idea of how many boats will need slips.  Please fill out this Looper-palooza Slip Request Form to let us know your needs.  We will get back to you as soon as arrangements can be finalized.  Contact Julie Shea with questions.

Don't miss Looper-palooza! Registration is just $149 per person.

Charleston, SC
Rainbow Row
Spend a few days before or after Looper-palooza to explore Charleston. We are famous for our hospitality and our history. Visit Fort Sumter and walk the ground where the Civil War began. Shop for locally made sweetgrass baskets at the Market downtown. The art of basket weaving has been handed down from generation to generation for almost 200 years.

Our culinary scene is the heartbeat of downtown Charleston. Locally caught seafood is often purchased right at the dock and served the same night. Try our signature dish, She-Crab Soup.

Walk through the lower peninsula and explore the old neighborhoods. Each home is bigger and more beautiful than the last one. Take a tour of Aiken-Rhett House, one of the few homes where out buildings have survived. The home has been largely untouched since 1858 and many furnishings are original to the home. Self-guided audio tours mean you move through the home more freely at your own pace.
