Outside's Rave Reviews

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.

Awesome Trip

We enjoyed our boat ride so much! Everything from history, dolphins, lighthouses, and seashells. Captain Joe was one of the best guides we have ever had. He shared so much knowledge with us! Even our 7-year-old had a great time. We would definitely recommend this trip and Captain Joe!

5th year 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!

Kayak tour of Broad Creek

The kayak tour of the marina and Broad Creek was excellent. Our guide did a great job of setting a pace that was just right for newbies and more experienced kayakers. We saw manitees, crabs, snails, a pelican, a great blue heron, and experienced the smooth texture of plough (pluff) mud. We had a wide age range (6-68) in our immediate group, and everyone enjoyed it.
