The knowledgeable crew at Sky Pirate Parasail and Watersports facilitates rare aerial and aquatic experiences on Hilton Head Island with a collection of parasailing adventures, water-sports charters, leisurely cruises, and boat rentals. During each parasailing trip, a captain with more than 10 years of experience safely hoists guests up to 500 feet in the air from the deck of a USCG-Certified, 12-passenger boat. They also offer tandem and triple rides, allowing groups to share views of egrets, herons, and lethargic supermen flying nearby. The staff helms leisurely cruises of Broad Creek and Calibogue Sound, and their dolphin ecology tours follow the graceful adventures of nature's synchronized swim team. Guests can schedule a water-sports charter to enjoy several hours of tubing and water-skiing, and they may also rent 16- to 25-foot boats for personal adventures.
Carlos Ahumada, a member of the United States Golf Teacher’s Federation, brings more than a decade of teaching experience to each golf lesson he conducts. His students, which can be anyone from scratch golfers to outright novices, typically begin their lesson programs in an indoor facility. In this initial lesson, a video analysis captures their swing mechanics to set a benchmark for improvement, helping them perfect their ideal swing or finally realize that their brass knuckles are the only things holding them back. After helping them make adjustments to their swing, Carlos narrows his focus a bit, concentrating on those individual areas of the game that the student needs the most assistance with, which can be anything from a lack of proper core strength to an issue relaxing and visualizing.
With captain Jon "Gumbo" DeLoach at the helm of their sturdy vessel, Polecat Charters guides fishers and sightseers through inshore and offshore waterways teeming with myriad varieties of edible fish. Captain DeLoach ferries up to six passengers at a time through Intercoastal waters for up to eight hours, drawing on more than 20 years of local fishing experience to drag their bait-laden hooks through the habitats of sea bass, redfish, tarpon, and king mackerel. Wildlife watching tours, meanwhile, take passengers within stone-skipping distance of playful wildlife such as bottlenose dolphins, manatees, and egrets who swim alongside boats and sing Vaudevillian show tunes.
The salty sea sprays behind Captain Michael’s boat as he veers into the ocean near Hilton Head with his trusty first mate—a great dane named Dozer—by his side. As captain and owner of On the Water Hilton Head, Michael guides kayak trips through Lowcountry salt marshes and tidal creeks, and leads boat trips to view dolphins and seabirds in the waters around Pinckney Island and Port Royal Sound. Michael also runs water-taxi rides, charters fishing trips, and encourages visitors to take to the water themselves with kayak, standup-paddleboard, and jet-ski rentals.
ZipLine hilton head's signature two-hour tour showcases treetop views of the 12-mile island, from the boats, adjacent Marina and marshes to the swirling waters of Broad Creek. The tour's eight zipline course starts low in the lush canopy but steadily rises higher, reaching heights of up to 75 feet. Along the way, participants traverse suspended sky bridges, climb an aerial staircase, and whip past live oaks draped in spanish moss before their final 900-foot zipline descent.
