We went out with 5 newbie kayakers and we had a fantastic time. Our guide, Ben, who we met the night before at his full-time job at Fat Baby Pizza (which was very good), was a patient, knowledgeable guide. Single and double kayaks are available, the doubles being more stable. It is very safe and life jackets are mandatory. With the coupons, it was only $25 per person for a 2 hour excursion into the Broad Creek estuary. At first it was a bit challenging to "master" the balance and paddling technique, but after 5 minutes, no problem. We saw some very scenic seascapes, a few bird species, cormorans, pelicans and swifts. We also spotted about 6 or 7 dolphins, some very close to our kayaks. My guess is for experienced kayakers, this outing might be a tad boring, but for kayak virgins, this was FUN! If you can, ask for Ben for a guide.

We took the last Fireworks tour of the season with our guide Mary. Great (no, awesome!) experience! The kids had solo kayaks, while my wife and I shared a double. Rather large group - maybe 12 or so - with Mary, and there were another 4-5 groups on the water with us.

We left at high tide, so we plenty of water in the creek. Dolphins visited us several times - I think we saw 3 or 4 - and one swam all around our group (see photos). Mary was an awesome tour guide, and shared a lot of info about the creek, the island, and the flora and fauna.

We got back to the dock near dusk, and after a 30 minute wait, we were treated to an awesome fireworks show from Shelter Cover.

We highly recommend Kayak Hilton Head - great group to work with, great staff, and memories to last a lifetime.

Captain Bill offered a great shark excursion. He was very patient with my son and very informative about all the types of fish and sharks. We had a great time catching many different types of sharks including a hammerhead! Highly recommend

Kayaking with dolphins had to be the highlight of our week at HH. My family loves to kayak but I had only canoed previously and never kayaked. I was panic-stricken until our guide Joe put me at ease and helped me figure out how to hold the paddle and maneuver the kayak. He was just wonderful with the whole group and made sure we saw all the wildlife and nature possible in our 2 hour session and shared lots of insight about HH and the preservation focus evidenced in the development of the island. It was a superb experience and we highly recommend this company for its friendliness online, by phone, and in-person, its ease of accessibility, and its incredibly competent staff. Both teenagers and parents in this family loved the experience and wouldn't hesitate to go again on a return trip, which we hope is as soon as next year!
