The 90-minute hiking tour sends adventurers out on a low-impact jaunt through the salt marsh and woodlands to Ibis Pond, a freshwater haven for all manner of fauna from herons and egrets to alligators and turtles. An interpretive naturalist helms the tour, pointing out interesting sites and the friendliest egrets. Alternatively, cyclists hop aboard bikes during a two-hour guided tour of Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge culminating in a viewing of the winged and finned creatures inhabiting Ibis Pond. Tour takers pedal through flat terrain while admiring the rich surrounding wildlife along the way. <p>
Water Dog Outfitters
An armada of sea kayaks quietly slices through the sparkling waters of Broad Creek, suddenly interrupted by the playful splashes of two bottlenose dolphins sidling up to the fleet. As the people in the kayaks erupt into squeals of glee, one of Water Dog Outfitters’ seasoned guides launches into an impromptu lesson explaining dolphin behaviors and why they’ve alighted upon the kayaks. This awe-inspiring interaction is the reason Water Dog Outfitters was founded in 1998, and today its knowledgeable staff continue to lead engaging, history-laced tours around Hilton Head Island, Pinckney Island, and the surrounding lowlands. While the company’s focus remains on maritime exploits along local rivers and impressive puddles, Water Dog’s cadre of naturalists also returns to terra firma to lead bicycle tours and hikes for explorers of all ages and abilities.
