This was a wonderful afternoon spent on Daufuskie Island touring the Gullah community. Captain Charlie was both our licensed, extremely capable captain and tour guide. He is very knowledgeable about the Gullah culture and seems to have many friends on the island including a potter and a metal fish sculpter. Definitely a worthwhile trip.

I highly recommend using this tour company for your Daufuski trip. Once booked, I received directions, a list of what to wear and what to bring. The boat ride and tour of Daufuski with Captain Charlie was great!! He is very knowledgeable of Gullah history and lifestyle and made the tour interesting and enjoyable. He was very easy to talk...

Did an evening kayak tour of Pinckney Island. Ana was very friendly and was very informative about the history and wildlife. Make sure you go during high tide so you can get closer to the island.

My wife and had the pleasure of spending the afternoon with Charlie Horn, a knowledgeable and capable Captain & guide. The boat ride was interesting and informative. The golf cart tour was outstanding with Charlie,s vast store of historical facts. Truly an afternoon well spent.

Had a great tour of Daufuskie by boat/golf cart. Captain Bill did a great job of giving us all the local knowledge of Hilton Head / Bluffton / Daufuskie. Great boat ride over to the island with points of interest all the way. Daufuskie Island can only be reached by boat and is probably often and easily overlooked. It has... More

We were scheduled for a sand bar excursion but weather prevented our trip. We came back in early evening for a dolphin - sighting cruise. We had a great time and Capt. Gio made sure everyone had fun. We highly recommend Outside Hilton Head and Capt. Gio!

Boat ride was scenic but we couldn't here the tour part over the sound of the boat. We stopped at a private island then went on a two hour kayak tour. If you love the person you are with don't take the double kayak. It will put even the best relationships to the test. My child had a great time.... More

We reserved 3 kayaks several days in advance because we wanted to try the Hobie Mirage and they only had a couple. The guy that helped us first day was great. Woke up this morning to 40 degrees and moved our reservation from 9am to 1pm when it was significantly warmer. Service was outstanding! There was the perfect balance of... More

This has everything to offer for the outdoor person. I love the clothing for both men and women. They wrap for Christmas too.. They do offer outdoor adventures for the family. I have put my grandson in their day summer programs and he loved it.
