Kids and I loved the beachcomber cruise. Our guide Gio was super knowledgeable about the area and wildlife along the trip. Fun day and would definitely recommend for kids in the 9-12 years of age group.

Though very excited at the idea of yoga... More

We saw a horseshoe crab or... More

I hired a self-drive pontoon boat for a family outing from Outside Hilton Head and had a fantastic time. Easy to maneuver, we headed out of Shelter Cove and set course for Daufuskie Island passing phenomenal views of Spanish Wells, etc. When we thought I had failed my granddaughters with no Dolphins up comes a dolphin to our boat and...

Go when the tide is going out and you will see lots of dolphins! Great for bird watching too! Great location and nice staff. Easy to rent and explore... More

We were totally confident in his ability. He went over and above. A member of our family/ party is in a wheelchair and suffering from cancer and he made... More

Very knowledgeable about the flora, fuana and the history of the island. We encountered alot of wildlife, especially dolphins that came about 10 feet from us! The equipment was in good shape! Well...

By far an outstanding instructor. Captain Amee was energetic and kept things very exciting! at all times. I flipped over on my kayak (no need to worry since water levels was about 4 ft). Amee helped me recover back on to my kayak in such a professional way and helped set a record at her location. For being the quickest... More
