Visited Hilton Head Island and wanted to to some water activities again this time. I have used OHH for a kayak tour before and loved it. This time it was even better. I did the Full Moon Paddle with guides Nick and Dan. There was I think 4 or 5 other guests as well. If you're looking to do some... More

We have kayaked several times while in HHI over the years with OHH and always had a great trip! Their reputation and ranking speaks volumes. As many times as we have used them, couples, family/large group individual, sunset, or low tide creek exploration, we've never been bored, or had the same paddle. Each trip has been different and perfect in... More

This group does a great job on their information about the island, the eco system and inhabitants, and Broad Creek. They make sure they get you to where you can see some dolphins, but you also see so much more and learn alot. We even saw a small shark this time.

We went out for a 2 hour guided kayak tour. Our guide Gerard was super helpful and knowledgeable. It was a fun way to spend Mother's Day morning! Highly recommend.

We took the 3 hour Full Tide tour with Big Joe as our guide. The four of us and another couple enjoyed time spent learning about the waterways surrounding Hilton Head and the natural resources within. What a great way to see parts of Hilton Head you wouldn't normally be able to! We also saw several dolphins, including a young... More

We always use this company when we come to HHI. Usually we rent kayaks (they also have guided tours). This time we took the 90 minute eco dolphin tour twice (each time with different guests). We saw dophins both times with osprey and eagles thrown in. Capt Tim and Capt Joe Brasfield were great guides with each of they providing... More

We took the Daufuskie tour with Charlie Thorn. He is a walking talking history book. There were 9 of us and none of us asked a question that he couldn't answer. He wasn't a history teacher before retirement but is an excellent one now. He's studied the island in depth, has written a book and is working on a sequel.

My wife and I rented Kayaks, the price was good $20 for first hour, $10 next hour. We walked up without a reservation and was immediately taken care of. We were in Kayaks within a few minutes. We each took a single Kayak, doubles are available. We went out alone, guided tours are available. While we were out we saw... More
