Celebrating our friends birthday, James took us out into the inter coastal & creeks, where we found dolphins several times. We were the only guests in the boat, so it really felt like a friend taking us out on the water. Cost a bit more than the other tours, but worth every penny.

We rented kayaks and went on our own on the Broad Creek. It was the first week of March, and the weather was perfect. We were lucky to find them as most other companies on the island were still closed. I called to book just a day before, as we wanted to see if the good weather would hold, and... More

Kayaking on Broad Creek with Kayak Hilton Head was great, so much better than the tours offered at Sea Pines. This was a relaxed trip and the guide Joanne was so knowledgeable about the the area, the salt marsh, and all the wildlife that it supports, and she shares it in such an easy going manner that you don't even...

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

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!!!

Hey Victoria....thanks for your review! We don't respond to alot of reviews but as owner I do keep a close eye on them. Just wanted to say thanks to you and anyone reviewing our kayaking or dolphin discoveries boat tours. It's much appreciated.

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
