“Shrimp boat - Tues only”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

While in HHI , made reservations for the Tues shrimp boat ride with Capt John, wife Marley, and mate Kasey.Great time. Kids and adults had fun. We went out on afternoon 1-4. Morning trip each family took home 3lbs shrimp. We got a total of 3 lbs and with 25 ppl on boat they picked name out of hat. Even still the kids saw small sharks, rays, crabs, and various fish. Great scenery and informative. PS The restaurant at the dock, Hudson's, was great. Ate lunch at outdoor bar with super-friendly bartender ( free apps ) and came back another night for a great dinner on water.

“A great education in local wild life and history”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

On the day we visited, there was a demonstration of local animals. This was extremely enjoyable where the visitors (many children) were taught about the common animals and allowed to touch and feel them. Highly recommended. But visit on a day when these demonstrations are taking place.

“A great place to visit”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Nice people, cool piers going out over the marsh, a butterfly house, trails to walk. Lots of local wildlife info. And it is all free, but make a donation if you can.

“Very informative”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

This was a last minute decision to visit and well worth it! I agree with the many reviewers who said to visit at the beginning of your stay in Hilton Head as it walks you through the history of the island. There are no entrance fees although a donation box is prominently displayed at the front desk. Staff was informative and friendly.
