Had an amazing time paddle boarding with instructor Kat. She took the time to train everyone and I didn't feel rushed even when I managed to fall a few times. If you're looking for a good first time experience then this is the company and instructor for you. Great job!

My group of 8 went paddle boarding out of the kiosk in Shelter Cove. No res necessary which is a huge plus. One person's fin got caught in an oyster bed, which resulted in massive stitches and ER visit. You would have thought a jet ski could have been sent out for help, as some got back to the dock...

Our group really wanted to spend some time on the water and they did a great job accommodating us. AJ our guide had us knee boarding, water skiing, wakeboarding and tubing. He was very patient and informative, he really knew his stuff. We couldn't have had a better time. On top of that, he took the time to let us... More

No, not Gilligan's Island, but rather a fun, informative wildlife adventure through the local Low Country, courtesy of Captain Gio. He is extremely knowledgeable in the local flora and fauna and ties in the history of the area, from the Spaniards to the Gullah people to help us understand what we see today. Recommend him and the tour very highly.

We Loved our SUP trip with Amee. I am an advid paddleboarder and was on a trip with several people (adults and kids) that wanted to try it out. Amee did an amazing job and was incredibly fun. We learned the history of the area, did fun team building activites on the boards and just simply had the best time.... More

I can't recommend this outfitter enough. I took the standard 2 hour kayaking trip and it was a blast. We saw dolphins, egrets, and oysters, and got rocked by the boat waves (or wakes, as they call it) a few times which made it even better. Don't let rain dissuade you-it rained twice while I was on the water and... More

Went to Hilton Head for the first time a couple of weekends ago and wanted to take the kids kayaking. I signed us up for a four hour tour for kayaking. It ended up just being the three of us and our guide, Jeremy. He gave us an option to do kayaking, paddle boarding, or both. We were a little... More

We had an early morning trip 8 am. Nice conditions because it did not get hot until 12 noon. We were out the whole morning. Our captain Grant was great, he even gave us snacks and drinks! The private island was really cool and had very clean bathrooms! The boat ride to the island was fast and informative! We saw... More

We were visiting in Hilton Head with the US Lighthouse Society in May 2015 and this boat service was used to take us to see lighthouses from the water and to Dafuskie Island. Our driver, Gio, was the best! It was more than a boat ride out to the islands, it was a thrill ride! We needed to get between... More
