Joseph was an awesome guide. My son nervous and Joseph tried to help him relax and have fun. Our group had lots of different skill levels and he tried to accommodate everyone. Recommended.

What a fun kayak trip....

What a fun kayak trip. Our guide, Tim, couldn't have been nicer. One of our group was a first timer...he had a blast as did the rest of us. Tim must be a dolphin whisperer as he found them & quieted us down to ensure they stuck around for a bit. Great trip! Loved the way we entered the kayak on the dock & got back out on the dock...no chance of spilling out into the water. Also the kayaks were great..great assorted foot holds & very comfy backs to seats. We'll be back@

Being out on the water felt wonderful! Very free and calming. Never dreamed we would actually see dolphins but we saw four! A bit too pricey.

A great experience for our family. The tour guide, Hake, was great, but there was some miscommunication from the office. There were not enough oars because the office overbooked. He handled the situation well though.

Not worth the money, false advertising
Tracy_S
, Jun 2021
Our tour guide Tim was great, but the tour was much shorter than advertised. I paid for what was advertised as a 90 minute tour, and we were in the kayaks for less than 30. I saw 3 dolphins and 2 great blue herons, but other than that, totally not worth 42 dollars a head. (Party of 3)
icon Response from Host , Feb 2022
We are sorry to hear that you did not feel the trip was worth it? Tim is one of our top guides and we operate all our tours at 90 minutes for kayaking. Our kayaking tours must go out and remain on schedule as we have a full schedule. Some of that time is used loading and unloading. We hope to see you on your next Hilton Head vacation.
