Bike Rental Company & Dolphin Cruise Company advice

Starting in Palmetto Dunes in mid May. Thinking of renting bikes for the week and also looking to do a Dolphin Cruise. Group includes a 18 month old and a 3 yr old, so the Dolphin Cruise I am debating if we should do a 2 hr or stick to 1 with the small children. What company do you recommend for the bikes that is concurrent to that area and what do you recommend we look into four the Dolphins? Getting lost with all the options in these areas.

Hilton Head Outfitters are right on the premises. Others seem to like the Bike Doctor.

We love Commander Zodiak in South Beach for the dolphin cruise. They actually have a longer cruise that includes a stop on a sandbar to look for sand dollars and shells, my kids loved that when they were younger. They are also pretty good at getting a chance to see strand feeding back in Bull Creek (strand feeding is a behavior where the dolphins school the baitfish and push them up onto the mud flat and then follow them up out of the water onto the flat and eat the fish, really cool). You don't get it every time, but the captains at CZ are pretty good at getting you to see it. Request Scott if you use them.

When we stay in PD we use HH Outfitters. We've used them a few times and no complaints. Outside we use the Bike Doctor. We've used them more and have no complaints.

You may want to check out Hilton Head Bike Rentals, they also have baby gear if you need, they are usually a little cheaper than outfitters and deliver and pick up free. For the dolphin tour we always used Low Country Nature Tours, Scott is the owner. They run out of Shelter Cove marina (across the street). I like them because they don't follow a specific path, they radio their other boats and take you to where the dolphins are. We have asked them to cut our tours short when our kids were small and they had enough, never a problem, they have small boats and we were very often the only family on it.
