Sunset Fireworks Cruise 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.

Two and a half Hour Tour

*Please Note - Due to the tides, the lengths of Fireworks cruises will vary in length from 1.5 to 3.5 hours.

Every trip is a unique experience. Our friendly captains will entertain and educate your family or group.  Only ten fireworks cruises this season.

Dolphins

Watching for Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphin is a big part of this tour, and they nearly always abound in Broad Creek and the Calibogue Sound. Two and a half hours gives us plenty of time to find dolphins.

Sunsets

After cruising down Broad Creek and out to the Calibogue Sound you'll have a perfect view of the sunset over the water.  Our sunsets in the summer are breathtaking.  Bring  your camera.

FIreworks

On Tuesday evenings during the summer months your sunset cruise will conclude with a fireworks grand finale.  Our boats get you the closest view of the fireworks over the water.

After the show it's only a few minutes ride back to our docks at The Old Oyster Factory Restaurant.  You'll miss the crowds and the traffic and share a unique experience with your family creating memories that will last for years.
