Hilton Head Island Creek Cat Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Zip around Hilton Head Island on an incredibly fun, 2-hour, guided, adventure. There's no better way to see more amazing sights and have a more incredible adventure than on these amazing little boats. With speeds up to 30mph, this tour will visit all the normal spots but also take you into the back creeks where dolphin strand feed and other wildlife reside. A professional guide will lead the way while you operate your own Creek Cat and cover over 25 miles around Hilton Head, the Harbour Town Lighthouse, Daufuskie, and more.
  • Drive your own “creek cat” boat around Hilton Head Island
  • See the Harbour Town Lighthouse, Daufuskie Island, and Bull Island
  • Choose among multiple departure times per day to fit into your schedule
  • Observe local wildlife, perhaps even dolphins
What to Expect
Meet for your “creek cat” tour dockside in Palmetto Bay Marina. Board your own boat and begin your ride through the waters around Hilton Head Island. During your guided tour, visit back creeks and various waterways covering about 25 miles (40 kilometers) around the island. Cruise through marshes and past mansions while your guide tells you about local wildlife and folklore. Spot dolphins, eagles, ospreys, egrets, and otters along the water. Travel at your own pace and with some independence while staying under the supervision of the guide. Every now and then you have the chance to open the throttle and speed the pace up—the little boats can travel up to 30 mph (48 kph). The tour finishes back at the docks.

Alex was our tour guide, and we all followed him in our own Creek Cat. He was knowledgeable and had interesting commentary. We saw pelicans, "cannonball" jellyfish, other water birds and dolphins in Savage Creek. Beautiful scenery, great fun on the cat. PREPARE to get WET! When

We had a fun, unique experience with our guide, Captain Sam. The boats were fun and easy to drive. Great scenery, and even saw a few dolphins. Plus, we got to learn a bit of the history of the islands. Recommended.
