We thoroughly enjoyed the trip to Daufuskie Island to see and learn more about the Gullah Culture. Charlie has a deep knowledge and also seems to personally know many of the residents. He also shares traditional Gullah stories which add humor and another layer of information. Boat ride to the island gives great views of marshes and residential areas. We... More

Good quality rentals, may be a little worn, but very seaworthy. Have rented a pontoon boats and kayaks and been happy with both. The shelter Cove rental location puts you on Broad Creek which allows for high likelihood of dolphin sightings. It is about 20 min to half an hour from their location to Calibogue Sound in the pontoon boat.... More

My sister and I dared to try stand up paddle boarding in January with Kristen as our awesome teacher. We knew there was a chance we would end up in the cold water as beginners, while also contending with strong currents and wicked wind but Kristen's knowledgeable instruction kept us safe and dry. To top it off, she took pictures... More

My wife and I with 3 other "hardy souls" braved a cold Jan 17th afternoon to tour Daufuskie Island. Our guide Boo Harrell made the trip fun and interesting with his knowledgable narration. This was a highlight of our time in Hilton Head.

Captain Pete brought us out for the dolphin cruise/beachcombing. All we can say is it was amazing. We saw 15-20 dolphins, had the most interesting history lesson and were taken to some of the best sights on the water. Thank you captain Pete.we will definitely be returning and asking for him to be our captain! Anyone doing the dolphin cruise... More

We booked the 4.5 hour Outback Tour and were pleasantly surprised that there were only the two of us and Capt. Grant on the tour. We saw multiple dolphins on the boat ride to and from Page Island, including one that swam right up along the boat. Capt. Grant shared interesting information about the local history, geology, and ecology. The... More

Because we visited in the off season, we had a lot of difficulties trying to find a dolphin tour. Thankfully we found Outside Hilton Head. Our tour guide (I believe it was Deb) took us on a tour that wound up only being my fiancé and I plus her. It was fantastic! She is so knowledgeable about the dolphins and... More
