We had a wonderful kayak trip with John of Live Oac. It was relaxing, informative, and because it was a family group, we could go at our own pace. He knows a great deal about the area and we learned a lot about the various flora and fauna of Hilton Head. Highly recommended for nature lovers!

We took the Live Oak dolphin tour with Captain Scott and had a great time. His boat holds 6 passengers which was just perfect for us two grandparents and our son's family of four. We did see dolphins and a few were close enough to the boat to get some good pictures. Scott also is very knowledgeable of the whole... More

My wife and I took the private Nature tour. Our Captain , John, was fun, knowledgeable and had a love for nature and the history of HHI. We saw at least 50 dolphin, 3 Bald Eagle Eaglets, and an enormous and beautiful mother Eagle, just to name a few of the wildlife species we encountered. Not once to we feel... More

Myself and three friends took a dolphin cruise here with Live Oac today, 4/13/15. What started as a grey day dramatically improved after being on the water with Captain Travis. The sun came out, the dolphins were seen a few times, got a nice history lesson and the cannonball jellyfish decided not to fire a broadside. It was terrific fun.

Your review is greatly appreciated! Capt. Travis has never lost a battle with the fearsome Cannonball Jellyfish... yet. There was once a very close call, but that involved several other captains bombarding him at once. Capt. Travis's positive attitude and expert boat maneuvering saved his ship, his crew, and his reputation as the Cannonball Jellyfish Battle Champion. Thankfully, Cannonball Jellyfish... More

Booked a 2 hour charter for me, the wife and 3 teenagers with less than 24 hours notice. Guys did a great job of advising me before I booked that fishing conditions may not be ideal for the time I wanted but they would do their best. Who does that? Most places would have gladly booked me and processed the... More

Back again to Hilton Head Island. Had a good fishing trip with Capt. Travis on Red Fish. Weather could have been better, but thats mother nature, still caught fish and had a great time. Three days later, the wife and I and two grandkids (age 4 and 6), one of them's birthday, took a dolphin tour with Capt. Scott. Great... More

We went on a two hour kayaking tour with our two sons...8 & 10. John was great: super knowledgeable of the area, the history and the salt marsh ecosystem. He knew how to engage both adults and kids alike. What a cool part of Hilton Head Island! Nothing better than a leisurely cruise through the marshes - all under your... More

Three of us down in Hilton Head for a girls' week and wanted to see some dolphins. In past years, we've gone on larger boats with too many folks. This year, we signed up for a shared tour with Private Oac. It was off-the-charts AMAZING!!! Two hours of spotting all kinds of birds (including a bald eagle), exploring the area,... More

How seldom can you find an outfitter that will allow you to plan the day? Most trips we have taken were fine but we had no input. I called Scott several days before our day on the water and was amazed when he asked what we wanted to do and he made sure it happened. When I called him the... More
