Hilton Head Island is not only surrounded by water; it is dotted with lagoons, marshes, and inlets throughout. With so much water it comes as no surprise that there are dozens of ways to get your feet wet. Our Guide lists all of them and gives you contact information for the best outfitters, guides, and boat captains in the Hilton Head area.

For those seeking a little outdoor adventure, during their visit to Hilton Head Island, the opportunities are endless! There is plenty of skiing, knee boarding, parasailing, and jet skiing to be done! Kayak tours are also a very popular way to see the island wildlife, like dolphins, fish, alligators, birds, and sometimes manatees. Active vacationers will also enjoy our championship golf courses, award winning racquet clubs and a friendly game of beach volleyball. When you’re ready to relax and soak up some Carolina sunshine, you can spend the day lounging at an oceanfront pool, or on the beautiful beaches on Hilton Head.

Speaking of beaches, Hilton Head has 12 miles of the most beautiful sandy beaches in the state for you to enjoy during your visit to the Island. Our Guide tells you which beach best suits your day’s activities and let’s you know which of our beaches have public access, water sports rentals such as boats and beach bikes, the best beaches for families and small children and where couples can go for a romantic stroll along the shore. Both experienced and novice anglers can have a great time on one of Hilton Head Island’s private charter fishing boats or party boats that are available for hire. Half-day, full-day, and even overnight trips can be arranged.

And last but not least…let’s go golfing! Probably Hilton Head’s most popular outdoor activity, there are over 20 of the best golf courses available for play in the Hilton Head and Lowcountry area.
