We rented kayaks for two hours and it was absolutely lovely! We paddled at a somewhat leisurely pace around the lagoon which is extremely tranquil and calm. We saw lovely birds (herons, egrets) throughout our trip and saw very few people. I highly recommend kayaking around palmetto dunes for a break from the beach and a really great outdoor activity that is not overly strenuous! The guy who helped with the kayaks was working hard and very helpful!

Spent a great morning with Capt Trent catching Reds, Trout, and a few sharks. I have fished with Trent on many occasions and would recommend him for his professionalism and his ability to build the trip to accommodate his clients, young or old. He works very hard to make the trip a success and to build memories that will last a lifetime.

Rented bikes and beach chairs from them. They delivered to our resort and bikes and chairs were there before we arrived. They have the best bikes! Rented from them the last several times I’ve been on the island and each time they’ve had great costumer service. My son asked them to attach his toddlers bike seat and they did it quickly without questioning. Would highly recommend them for your next adventure to Hilton Head!

I rented a baby stroller (Saturday AM to Saturday AM) and called Saturday afternoon to see when it would be delivered. I was told it was out for delivery and should be there in a couple hours. It never arrived. I had to call Sunday to find out where it was. Hilton Head Outfitters' response was, "Oops, we'll deliver it right away," and then proceeded to ask if I had checked all the bike racks in my vacation complex to "locate" the stroller. (I had looked, but didn't realize I paid for a scavenger hunt.) Finally, a sandy/dirty stroller was delivered Sunday afternoon. I expressed my frustration that I went an entire day and a half without a stroller for my 11 month old and felt that I should be compensated. Their response was that the 4-day through 7-day rentals were the same price, so there was no compensation to be given. So, HHO is telling me, they have no liability because they have a 3 day buffer to deliver equipment that is promised/ guaranteed the day of arrival for vacation. Well played. To top it all off, my stroller was picked up at 7am the Saturday of checkout. At least they were punctual in taking it back. Poor business etiquette.

Captain Trent Malphrus is the best fishing guide on Hilton Head Island. He is a local who has grown up on the island and knows his way around the fishery. I highly recommend Palmetto Lagoon Charters for having a great fishing trip

We reserved kayaks well in advance. On the morning of our reservation, we got everyone up and headed to Hilton Head Outfitters, which is near the General Store in Palmetto Dunes. As we were parking, we received a call that they were having staffing issues, would be closed for the day, and that we’d need to reschedule. Because we still had another day on the island, we weren’t too put out and just rescheduled for the following day. The next morning comes and we engage in the same routine. Upon arrival at the site, they were closed again. This time we were in fact annoyed because (a) we didn’t even receive a phone call about the closure and (b) we were running out of time. Fortunately, my wife immediately called Kayak Hilton Head, reserved kayaks for that day, and we headed there. The staff was friendly and the kayaking was great (we were happier kayaking with dolphins versus kayaking with alligators, but that’s a personal preference). To Hilton Head Outfitters’ credit, they refunded our money (since we never even went with them). It’s just terribly unprofessional to be closed mid-week without warning and without a suitable explanation. They seem to have great reviews. So perhaps this was an anomaly.

Hello viajerodelmundo4ever. We certainly apologize that you had the experience mentioned above as we are typically impeccable with our service at HH Outfitters. Unfortunately, we ran into an internal issue during the few days you were trying to contact us which caused the interruption in business and in tern, some issues with existing reservations. This was a last minute occurrence so we once again, would like to apologize to you for the inconveniences it may have caused. Thanks for reaching out and we hope to see you back in the future.

Perfect private surfing lessons for my two daughters. It could not have gone better.
Captain Byron "Surf Dog" is awesome: super funny, insightful, engaging, and an authentic "surfer dude". My girls loved it from the outset and could not stop talking about it afterwards. They loved the beach yoga to start, the beach environmental insights, and of course surfing. Surf Dog had them up surfing quick and soon they were dancing on the board and riding "namaste". But they especially liked Surf Dog.

We have done several other private surfing lessons, but this was the best ...mainly because of Surf Dog. If I could rate higher than 5 stars, I would. 10 out of 10.

Our third time renting kayaks here. We go for the 1.5 hr. rental, which allows for a relaxed loop that take a little over an hour. Staff is friendly and efficient; kayak handlers are mostly local high school or college kids. Since you're kayaking in resort canals you'll see upscale houses, golfers and a few birds; not necessarily the place for extensive wildlife-no gators or dolphins. There are slightly cheaper options locally with more open water, but if you're at all concerned about weather, tides, boat wake, etc., this is probably the most relaxing option. Definitely recommended for a easy going time.

After years of jamming the back of the SUV with suitcases, coolers and beach chairs for our annual trip to HH, we finally got smart and rented beach chairs for the week from HH Outfitters. What a difference. My husband could actually see out of the back of the car and packing it was stress free. The process was simple...we ordered them online, picked them up in the morning and went strait to the beach. The chairs are great. They're easy to carry with backpack straps and have a little cooler pouch attached. We will always rent them in the future!

My daughter and I took surfing lessons from Jordan while on vacation in Hilton Head and had a great time! He grew up on Hilton Head and has been surfing for years. He was extremely patient with us and made the experience one we’ll remember for many years. At the beginning, he walked us through some stretches and talked to us about the sea turtles and the importance of cleaning up the beach. The ocean was extremely rough the day we took our lesson and he was very attentive to making sure we were safe throughout our time in the water. Due to covid, we had a private lesson, which even though was a bit more expensive, it was nice to have the personal attention especially with how rough the water was. If you’ve ever thought about taking surfing lessons, I would highly recommend it, it was a bucket list item for me and I wish I would have been exposed to it years ago!
