Outside Hilton Head for the WIN

My mom and I went out on a Dolphin watching sunset cruise. It was a beautiful night and we had a great time with Kat, our super friendly & knowledgable captain. Everyone at OHH is cool and they really care about the environment & the community of Hilton Head. It's such a pleasure visiting them on vacation!

Second trip with Outside Hilton Head

We had a group of 9 for a 5 hour Ultimate Day. We did hydro tubing, explored a sand bar and visited Daufuskie Island, and even saw some dolphins along the way. Captain Kathleen was amazing! She was personable and fun and designed the perfect trip for our group. This was our second such trip with outside Hilton Head and doubt it will be our last.

8 Years of Hilton Head Excursions

We've Outside Hilton Head for all our outdoor excursions for the past 8 years from kayaking, paddle boarding and cruises. This recent dolphin tour we did on Friday morning with Capt. Joe was the best! Such a cool dude to hang with and super knowledgeable! Can't wait for our next excursion!

Already Planning A Return Visit!

We chartered a private sunset cruise on the Pau'Hana for our family of 35 (12 adults and 23 grandchildren, ranging from 6 months to 70) and had such a great time, we are already planning a return visit! The crew was so accommodating, so patient with our kids (even letting several of them drive the boat), and so fun. We took tons of photos and saw dolphins along the way.

Fantastic Trip

We booked a private 7-Hour Ultimate Day for the family. Our Captain Mickey Price, went above and beyond to make sure the entire family had a wonderful experience. Captain Price provided us with the rich history of the area and based upon his expertise, he found Dolphins, Eagles, and numerous other species to provide us with a fun-filled educational and fun experience. We will definitely make this a part of our regular visits to Hilton Head!

5th Years with Outside

This is at least our 5th year taking the trip to the vanishing island! Loved it every time! This time we had Captain John, and he was fantastic. Knowledgeable, answered the kid's questions and made sure we had a great time. I don't think we've ever had a bad Capitan on any of our trips. Will continue to use outside Hilton Head for these trips. Thanks!

Had A Great Time with Outside!

My wife and I did the 2 hour SUP tour with Sean and then we took the kids on the 3-hour beach combing cruise with captain Joe the next day. The SUP tour was easy/moderate and afforded us a close-up view of everything in the salt marsh. The cruise was great for the kids. Would definitely recommend both!

Bachelorette Party Experience

This was my 2nd experience with Outside Hilton Head, both were for bachelorette parties and both absolutely fantastic. The booking process was simple and the directions to checking in at the Marina provided a smooth start to our day. I cannot recommend Captain Pippi enough. She is an incredible human being who is extremely knowledgeable about the area. You guide the conversation but we enjoyed asking her questions and learning more about the wildlife patterns in the area. She took us to 3 different locations where we got to dock jump, enjoy a popular local drink, and find awesome shells. Highly recommend the 5 hour cruise, you won't be disappointed!
