What are three of the most unique waterborne adventures you would recommend for groups meeting in Hilton Head?
- Set Sail: At all of the Island’s seven public marinas, visitors will find first-class facilities providing a variety of boat rentals, from a sporty Sunfish to a sleek 70-foot yacht. Groups can book excursion tours such as dolphin-watching cruises, shopping and lunch cruises, sightseeing trips, group fishing, sailing charters and overnight sails at any of Hilton Head Island’s major marinas. Join a dolphin cruise for a two-hour voyage of local waters that offers an opportunity to view playful bottlenose dolphins in their natural habitat.
- Paddle On: Canoe and kayak rentals and instruction are available for those who want to explore the island’s creeks, marshes and majestic inlets. Hilton Head offers subtropical temperatures that provide the perfect year-round environment for kayaking. Groups can participate in guided tours, day-long adventures and overnight trips. Outside Hilton Head, the island’s premier outdoor outfitter has pioneered kayak fishing and is one of the first companies in North America to be running guided kayak fishing tours. Casting from a specially outfitted fishing kayak, you and your experienced guide will have access to hot spots even the smallest boats can’t reach. Lucky kayakers might even catch a glimpse of a bottlenose dolphin during their ocean outing.
- ZipLine Hilton Head: Explore the waters of Hilton Head Island from above! Broad Creek Marina Adventures has expanded their water activities to include the only zip-line tour available for more than 200 miles. This exhilarating tour, which takes just over two hours, traverses through and above beautiful live oaks with picturesque vistas of Broad Creek. ZipLine Hilton Head consists of seven zip lines plus a dual cable-racing zip-line finale, some with heights to 75 feet and traversing three suspended sky bridges. The attraction is just the start of what surely will be an eco-friendly outing for all.
