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.


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


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!
