We originally wanted to try this on Sunday, but they were not going to be open. Booked Saturday instead. Guide was thorough and ride was fun (even with cloudburst/rain near the end of the ride) and personal as there were only two boats in the group plus the guide but perhaps a little maintenance is needed on the craft. The boat we had was difficult to steer in that the left turns reacted with more sensitivity than the right turns. Also, some throttle adjustments may be needed as well. We had throttle wide open but were losing ground to the other boat in the group. Plan to do this again next trip and hopefully ride to other areas.

This is a review from our old location in Hilton Head. We are now in Palm Coast Florida. Thanks!

We went during the week on the sunset option. The boats are great, very stable and comfortable and easy to navigate. The day we went was about 72 degrees but we wore swim shorts and a light long sleeve jacket. The water was quite calm and it was not windy.
Dylan was an excellent guide taking time to make sure we were safe and comfortable and understood everything.
We loved the entire experience and saw lots of cool nature. Dylan did a great job stopping to point out items of interest, especially the dolphins which we saw a LOT of, including a baby and an entire dolphin school.
We never felt rushed and had such a fun day. Would highly recommend to all our friends.
We loved that Dylan took quite a few pictures to help us share the day with others.

I had a blast on this trip! I really don't know what to call these boats, they they are like a pontoon jet ski. A mini pontoon boat with a 40 hp motor on the back. You fly! Our tour guide was great. We stopped a few times to get the tourist info and also to watch the dolphins pop up 50 ft away from us. That was great.

I had done the short go cat tour and enjoyed it. i booked the longer tour hoping for a longer and more enjoyable experience. Instead mechanical problems plagued the guide's boat from the beginning and lasted for about half the trip. Suddenly the problem resolved and we had about an hour at normal speed but we were never told where we were, what we were seeing and didn't cover much more territory than we had on the short tour.

So sorry about your experience. We try each time to make this a first class experience on some really fun boats. Looks like we fell short and would like to make that up to you. Please call us to do that as we do not know who wrote this review. Our deepest apologies.

Although I was the only person it was one of the most enjoyable trips that I have been on. The owner was my guide and he was very knowledgeable of area and was always pointing out things of interest. The boat handling was an experience and very enjoyable. Can see where this would be great fun for the whole family by as much as I enjoyed it.

We like to look for something different to do and this was just the thing. My husband loved driving the boat once he got the hang of it. Our guide, Dillon was very patient and accommodating in showing us the area and providing some historical info. A big bonus were all the photos he took of us and then provided to us free of charge via dropbox a few days later.

What an afternoon! We had such an amazing experience on our Backwater Cat Adventure. We were so lucky with the number of dolphins that we saw. Even got to see an entire group of dolphins feeding. Dylan was the perfect guide, explaining to the group the different areas of the inlet and taking some great photos too!
Can't wait for my next quests to arrive so they can enjoy the experience too. We will 100% be booking again.

This was the best part of our Hilton Head Island vacation! The tour was outstanding and oh my gosh.....the boats were a blast! My husband and I each drove one with one of our kids. Full disclosure, I am not a boat person and was slightly nervous. It didn't take long to feel comfortable and even a little daring! Now my kids want us to buy these for use on our local lake. We will be back!

We love to hear that this was the best part of your Hilton Head Island vacation!! Thanks for the great compliments on our Backwater Cat Boats. They are very easy to drive and you can get a little daring as they are very safe and fun. I am so glad the kids loved every minute too...even the big kids! Thanks for sharing and we'll look for you on your next visit.

What an amazing experience it was! I highly recommend it to anyone.

We had such a blast on this adventure that we're considering getting one for the local rivers. And witnessing the dolphins' playful antics was an incredible bonus! It was truly awesome to see three dolphins so close, just a stone's throw away. So incredibly cool!
