  • Palmetto Bay Water Sports
    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.

  • Pole Cat Charters
    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.

  • Sea Monkeys Watersports
    Helmed by water-sports enthusiast Neil Turner, the staff of Sea Monkey Watersports outfits and guides explorers through the aquatic arteries of Hilton Head Island and the Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge. After a quick tutorial, thrill-seekers take to the waterways atop a Yamaha WaveRunner?which reaches speeds of up to 50 miles per hour?while keeping an eye out for local shorebirds and dolphins looking to drag race. Paddlers enjoy a more slow-paced journey piloting single or double kayaks as they travel on guided nature expeditions or self-led tours of the surrounding waters.

    Established in 1980, Legendary Golf sends families and friends around a trio of peaceful courses at two locations: 900 William Hilton and 80 Pope Avenue. Despite having different addresses and varying levels of difficulty, all three courses share something important: beautiful design. They feature water hazards, dog legs, and elevation changes, and on the more challenging stretches, even some par-4 and par-5 holes.

    Gentle waves lap at the shores of Hilton Head Island, growing in size and strength a bit further out. Here, you'll find surfers of all skill levels paddling out to hang ten or simply practice standing up. And there's a good chance they rented their boards from Go Surf Hilton Head. There's even a good chance they're in the midst of a lesson conducted by one of the company's instructors.

  • 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.
