We booked with Kayak Hilton Head after I had read so many awesome reviews. Maybe it would have been better if we had either Dave or Craig as our guide, as both of them have quite a few fans on Trip Advisor. But we didn't. To be fair, our guide, Jo, was perfectly nice. But it did feel like she... More

I booked our family on a dolphin cruise for an afternoon in late December. After reading reviews about many different companies, I chose this one, mostly because of the fact that they only take six people out on the boat (and we were already four people). I called and spoke to Dave almost a month in advance. He told me... More

Dave was so helpful with all my questions about going to Vanishing Island in December!! I'm so glad we decided to go. Ryan took us out and provided a lot of knowledge about the area. The sand bar was beautiful and we found a ton of sand dollars. Thank you guys so much!!!

Fantastic kayak tour with Kayaking Hilton Head and Craig our guide. Beautiful day. Equipment was nice. We chased elusive dolphins for two hours, saw a few shore birds. Craig was knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife. I was expecting a quick refresher course on how to paddle and turn but Craig was hoping to catch up with the dolphins... More

Kayak Hilton Head was top-notch from start to finish. The prices were reasonable. The driving directions were easy to follow. Parking was no problem. The equipment was in excellent condition. They had plenty of life jackets in all sizes. The single and double kayaks were clean and easy to get into and out of. The guides were knowledgable, friendly, and... More

Had a delightful day on the water with tour guide Mary. Found her knowledgeable and organized. We had perfect weather. Broad creek was a calm and easy paddle with plenty to see. Dolphin sighting within the first 15 minutes. Recommend for all ages and levels. Best spent two hours on the island.

Mrs. Jo was such a pleasure. I've kayaked before but my friend had not and she did a great job balancing both our level needs and interests. We saw a hand-full of birds and our visit was at the perfect time for peeking at the oyster beds up close and personal. The sun and breeze were perfect the information she... More

Rented kayaks here on 10/30 and found the service easy and friendly! We were told we would see dolphins on our 4 mile round trip tour - and we did!!! Well priced too. Definitely worth adding this to your time in Hilton Head!

My family and I decided to kayak while visiting Hilton Head. We had so much fun. Kayaking is a fun activity. The sea breeze was really nice having it hit your face. We all enjoyed our time kayaking. This is a great thing to do in Hilton Head.

We had a wonderful time. We were fortunate that the Kayaking was available because it was just a week after the Hurricane. We learned so much about birds, oysters, Dolphins and the waterway. The Dolphins came right up to our Kayak and even swam underneath it. Quite a delight!
