My husband and I recently went Kayaking with them. We are new to the area and wanted to get to know the waters for kayaking on our own. We decided to do the 2hr tour. Absolutely worth it. Jack was our guide. He was so nice and very knowledgeable. Helped us get to know broad creek and where to go/what to avoid. He also taught us a lot about the area: the wildlife, hilton head history, etc. We really enjoyed the 2 hours.

When you call and book they tell you they prefer cash or check. ($3 fee for credit) so we stopped at the bank and took out some cash (if you mention the website you save some $). What we didn't know was that they gladly accept (and absolutely deserve) tips. Didn't even cross my mind, I felt so guilty because we only took out the $60 for the tour.

I will absolutely be back again, and I'll be prepared to tip them next time. Was really great. Highly recommend it.

Our family did a 2 hour kayak trip. The guided tour was BY FAR the way to go. We considered just renting 3 kayaks, but the guide makes the trip. Our guide Brian grew up in the area and had tremendous knowledge about the ecosystem there. Every few minutes we took a break and he explained another part of what we were seeing, from oysters, sting rays, and dolphins. We even spotted a Bald Eagle snag a mullet. (there are 3 nests we are told on the island) Toward the end of the trip we came up on a pod of dolphins. It started raining a little bit, but he said we could stay out as long as we wanted. The kids were mesmerized by the dolphins. We drifted with the incoming tide with the group of 6-8 dolphins for about 45 minutes extra...in the rain! (yes, we tipped him well). He kept us entertained with local history as well as recommendations for other activities and restaurants. Everything is handled for you. From the time we showed up, got a quick safety briefing and paddle tutorial to getting out of the boats. We will definitely be back!

came back to hilton head for another visit and they moved their location below the old oyster factory which was very peacefull and alot easier getting in and out of the kayak. pat was very knowledgeable about the wildlife and has keen eye. he spotted a (rare to this area) roseate spoonbill which was a treat for us birdlovers. try to go mid tide as it drops,

We just finished a 2 hour kayak your with this outfit. It was fantastic! Very laid back, VERY informative, and fun. Took all four family members- a teenage daughter, my wife and I, and my 74 year old mother in law. Our guide, Tim, was very patient with us as we goofed around and paddled in circles. Lots of wildlife sitings. We highly suggest going at sunset because it was absolutely amazing. The full two hours had a breathtaking views and were very relaxing.

We were a large group of several chldren and adults. Our guide was amazing and we were able to observe a young male dophiin for several minutes as he dove into and came out of the water repeatedly in front of us. Kayaking was fun and you ave a choice of doubles or singles.
