We were in HiltonHead during an unseasonably cold week even for January. we were given great directions on the phone when we called to reserve a time and we're lucky that it was sunny and not unbearably cold when we went. JoAnn was very friendly and while I believe that a little attention to detail could make this place more... More

There are THREE Dave's with this company, 2 of which we had personal experiences with. Dave (the owner )was very accomodating of a last minute , off-season request for an AM guided, dolphin encounter kayak trip. When told that we would need to pay by check or in cash because the desk was unattended and therefore they could not run... More

Dave was great to work with. Everything there was really chill and laid back. We paid, got our lifevest and oar, were given a brief "how to", and within minutes of our departure time we were in the water. Dave was knowledgable about the wildlife we encountered and basically about all things Hilton Head. This didn't feel like an organized... More

We drove over to Kayak Hilton Head. It is next to a restaurant and a bar on a dead end road. There were letters on the side of a tree that said KAYAK PARKING and arrow that pointed left. We drove back there and there was a sign on a chain link fence. Inside the chain link fence was a... More

Kayaking here was incredible! The view was gorgeous even with it being away from the beach! Being so close to the dolphins - or rather them being right beside our kayaks - was an amazing experience! It is one that I will NEVER forget and hope to do again one day!!!

Totally great kayak outfitter!! I was down for the weekend with my daughter and nephew and we decided to find a place to kayak. I looked up this place on my phone and gave a call and Dave worked us in at the last minute. 1.) Dave: super nice guy, expert at navigating a group of kayakers through the creek... More

We toured with Bill and had a great experience. Bill shared a lot of really interesting info about HHI, and found the best spots to allow us to see many dolphins. We highly recommend Kayak Hilton Head

We had a great kayaking adventure with JoAnn. We were 2 adults and 3 kids (ages 11 and 13). While she was very well-versed in the area, birds, and environment, our kids were entranced with the 3 dolphins that kept us company for over half our trip. She taught us about their mating and travel patterns and kept the kids... More

This is a must do on Hilton Head Island even if you are there for a short time. The experience is unforgettable and the guide top notch. I would recommend going early in the day for mid tide. Bring plenty of water to hydrate.

We went on the discounted 2 hour kayak tour this morning with Dave. He's a great tour guide and is highly knowledgable. We saw dolphins and birds and it was a lovely trip. This was the first time we've been in single kayaks and the lesson at the start was very helpful. The discount trip is $28 for a full... More
