Our four children ages 7-11 attended the Kids Waterfun Day and they had a blast, asking if they could return the next day. They caught crab, shrimp, fish, did some stand up paddle boarding and water trampoline. They were super excited about the dolphins that passed by almost close enough to touch! There were a total of eight children in... More

After coming to Hilton Head for many years, I couldn't believe that I have never visited Daufuskie Island. Well that changed today when I went on Outside Hilton Head's Artisan's & History Tour. We were fortunate enough to have Captain Charles Thorn as the captain of our tour. It was awesome! Captain Charlie was very knowledgeable about Daufuskie's history. He... More

If you want to see the island from the water then this is the tour for you. We learned a ton about the environmental aspects of Hilton Head and saw tons of dolphins up close.

My family of 4 had an incredible trip with Nick. He took us all around the seven islands while explaining about the creatures and habitat. Then we all paddle boarded for the first time, before kayaking up a small cove. Nick was extremely knowledgeable and fun to spend the day with. We all learned a lot and had a great... More

We had a great time with our guide Ben Herman. The tour was lots of fun and educational. I wish we had seen a dolphin, but the tour was great none the less.

We went to Outside Hilton Head to take a Dolphin Eco tour. Don't let the name fool you. They are right on Hilton Head Island with a very convenient, easy to find location right in Shelter Cove. Captain Tim Johnson steered our boat. It was fun day! He is a no nonsense captain that kept us safe -- but we... More
