There were 4 of us that booked a historical boat trip & tour of Daufuskie Island. Our captain & guide, Grant, did a fantastic job identifying birds and giving us great information about HHI on our way to the island. The golf cart ride around the island was very informative and enjoyable thanks to Grant. He made our trip! This... More

We had a dolphin tour chartered here Wednesday night. Although we did not see any dolphins the tour was very enjoyable and the boat captain was very knowledgable regarding the area. Definitely worth doing!

We wanted to do some kayaking while in Hilton Head. Chose Outside Hilton Head because of nature trip offer. Made reservation. When got there, reservation was mixed up. Not sure if it was them or me that caused the problem. Their representative at the marina took the initiative and corrected the problem even thought they had an employee there to... More

We had a two-hour kayak trip over to the Pickney Island National Wildlife Refuge and we saw all kinds of birds and marine life. We were fascinated with the osprey, in particular, and the group of dolphins that were constantly surfacing around us. The egrets and cormorants as well as the anhingas and oystercatchers were amazing. We even saw oysters... More

We had a great tour with Outside Hilton Head. Our guide and staff did everything they could to make sure we enjoyed our outing. The guide knew an incredible amount about the ecosystem and the local wildlife. It wasn't just the script either, he answered a lot of questions from guests. He also knew how to get us very close...

I thoroughly enjoyed the Dolphin Tour I recently took with Captain Doug! He gave me and my group an awesome water tour where we spotted at least a half dozen dolphins that seemed to be putting on a show just for us. :-) He is very knowledgeable of the island and proved to be an excellent tour guide. I highly... More

Really enjoyed our beautiful sunset kayak paddle with Ben H, our guide! After visiting the location to get info about kayak and sup tours, we decided on a 2 hour easy paddle late in the day because of the heat. So glad we did, as it had cooled off a bit, water was calm, and we were able to enjoy... More

We had a wonderful trip with Captain Charlie! The boat ride to and from the island was most enjoyable, and the tour of Daufuskie was better than we imagined. Charlie is an expert guide and had many funny anecdotes to share. I would recommend to anyone who is interested in some of the history of the low country. A great... More
