1-Hour Discovery Tour Premium Private Tours

Island Explorer is the exclusive tour operator on Hilton Head Island to offer only Premium Private Tours on all excursions. All life in the salt marsh revolves around the tides. Our trips are designed with this in mind, therefore our schedule changes daily with these tides.  

Your family or group will have the entire 12-Passenger boat to yourselves with no other guests on board.

This unique experience will focus on your family's individual interests. These trips are about you - what you want to see, do, and learn. Our US Coast Guard licensed Master Captain naturalists will provide a safe, exciting, and educational experience.

For each Premium Private Tour there is a minimum fee which includes up to six guests. Additional guests up to 12 total may join your group for additional cost per person. With three vessels we can accommodate up to 36 guests on each tour.

One Hour Tour

Now you can enjoy the thrill of a small boat expedition for nearly the same cost as the big boat "bus tour".

Join Island Explorer for a great introductory cruise through the Lowcountry Salt Marsh and Broad Creek dolphin habitat.

Dolphins

Of course, watching for Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphin is a big part of this short trip, and they nearly always abound in Broad Creek.

Nature

Just a short distance from civilization lies the pristine natural beauty that makes Hilton Head Island famous. Enjoy spotting egrets, herons, osprey, and other Lowcountry waterfowl.

Fun For All Ages

This tour is perfect for guests with small children, senior citizens, or anyone that wants a shorter time outdoors. Grandparents, bring your grandkids!
