Some people spend their days working with computers and copiers; the staff at Parasail Hilton Head prefer parasails, banana boats, and jet skis. Based at Salty Fare Boat Landing, the team shares its sense of adventure with visitors ages 6 and up. During parasailing outings, Parasail Hilton Head's 31-foot parasail boat zooms through Skull Creek, lifting riders up to 500 feet into the air so that they can ogle the area's million-dollar homes, drifting sailboats, and frolicking dolphins. The company's captains also cut zigzags into the water during wild banana boat rides for up to six people, and they let customers do the driving by renting out jet skis by the hour.

Recommended by Golf Magazine, Tour Academy teaches golfers how to better pendulate their putters with a slice-fighting array of instructional techniques. A private lesson from head instructor and PGA member Ed Brill uses a state-of-the-art video swing analysis before teaching the fundamentals of ball-flight laws, the development of a pre-shot routine, and how to use a written game plan. Port Royal Golf Club's coastline green is surrounded by mounds of majestic marshland, with 54 holes cutting through a labyrinth of magnolias and live oaks. The course itself sits atop former Civil War grounds and is peppered with historical markers that chronicle significant wartime events. For students without sphere-pounding clubs, Tour Academy provides an arsenal of driving, chipping, and putting tools.

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.
