Overview
Exploring Hilton Head on a “creek cat” boat gives you several advantages: access to smaller marshes and wildlife-rich areas, and the chance to explore at your own pace. Zip around the island at speeds up to 30 mph (48 kph) while covering about 25 miles (40 kilometers). See the top highlights and get a chance to visit back creeks where dolphins and other sea life reside.
What to Expect
Meet for your “creek cat” tour dockside in Palmetto Bay Marina. Board your own boat and begin your 2-hour ride through the waters around Hilton Head Island. During your guided tour, visit back creeks and various waterways covering about 25 miles (40 kilometers) around the island.
Cruise through marshes and past mansions while your guide tells you about local wildlife and folklore. Spot dolphins, eagles, ospreys, egrets, and otters along the water.
Travel at your own pace and with some independence while staying under the supervision of the guide. Every now and then you have the chance to open the throttle and speed the pace up—the little boats can travel up to 30 mph (48 kph).
The tour finishes back at the docks after approximately two hours.

Total weight is ok and I think you’ll be fine but I suggest you contact Creek Cat as they state 300 lb max for an individual.
