If you can dream it, we can do it! Outside Hilton Head private kayak tours and instruction programs are designed around your group’s goals and desires. Using our network of guides, instructors and reservations specialists, we will design a program for you!
For those new to kayaking, we offer instructional programs that will set you on the right course for a lifetime of rewarding paddling. Our American Canoe Association instructors teach introduction to kayaking, strokes, and maneuvers, assisted rescues and self-rescues, launching and recovering, trip planning, kayak touring, tide interpretation and outfitting. For more experienced paddlers, potential instruction topics include kayak surfing, eskimo rolls, race training, freestyle, advanced strokes and commands, open water kayaking, trip leading, expedition planning, safety, and health… to name only a few! Instructors are expertly trained, patient and very experienced with different types of paddlers.
For those looking to do a private version of one of our group programs, or wanting to do a trip not regularly offered, a private tour is a great option. Our Interpretive Naturalist guides are also kayak experts who can lead you on any length of the tour. Popular private tour destinations include circumnavigating The Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge, exploring The New River, Combahee River, Okatie River, Colleton River, Port Royal Sound, Broad River, Beaufort River, Tulifinny River, Pocataligo River, Coosawhatchie River or paddling beachside to nearby Daufuskie Island, Page Island, Palmetto Bluff or Beaufort. Full day, half day and shorter tours, as well as multi-day expeditions are all options. On a private tour or instructional clinic with Outside Hilton Head, the possibilities are endless
