Once underway, she was very informative about the marine life and the history of Hilton Head. She made a point of slowing down so we could see turtles and dolphins since we had four children with us. Everyone had a... More

We had a great tour of the lowlands and marshlands by Captain Pete. Thank for the awesome history lesson, Ecology lesson and stories about modern day HHI area. Our 11 yo son really enjoyed the wildlife sightings! The Konrads from IN

What a great time! Captain Grant was an excellent captain and an awesome ambassador for Hilton Head. We really can't say enough great things about Grant and the entire operation. We highly recommend Outside Hilton Head. The facilities and equipment were newer and top if the line. Looking forward to doing this excursion again next year.

We really enjoyed our time doing a dolphin and Beach Combing tour with Captain Gio. We have two young children and he made us feel very much at ease with the safety precautions on the boat. He also knew a lot about the area and gave us some interesting information. We saw dolphins and also found several starfish, sand dollars,... More

We come to HHI/Shelter Cove every year and each time we take a Outside Hilton Head tour we learn something new. Will definitley be back for more next year. And also... More

We got to see dolphines, go kajaking, fishing and go to a local farm. Our captain for the day Katleen was simply awesome. She told us stories... More

Captain Kat met us a the dock with a huge smile. From there it was a wealth of knowledge about the environment . She took us to page island where she showed us around and let us hike a little bit, then took us fishing, then took us kayaking and paddle boarding! She was full of energy and so very... More
