Itinerary
Meet for your “creek cat” tour dockside in Palmetto Bay Marina. Board your own boat and begin your 2-hour ride through the waters around Hilton Head Island. During your guided tour, visit back creeks and various waterways covering about 25 miles (40 kilometers) around the island.

Cruise through marshes and past mansions while your guide tells you about local wildlife and folklore. Spot dolphins, eagles, ospreys, egrets, and otters along the water.

Travel at your own pace and with some independence while staying under the supervision of the guide. Every now and then you have the chance to open the throttle and speed the pace up—the little boats can travel up to 30 mph (48 kph).

The tour finishes back at the docks after approximately two hours.

Creek Cat Tour - Great Activity!

We did the Creek Cat Tour with Captain Kim and had a fantastic time. We went during the week, while on vacation, and selected a mid-morning start time. Summer days on HHI can get pretty hot, so we wanted to do this activity a bit...More

I’m not sure there’s a question there, but if you’re asking if we ever felt that Captain Kim put us in a position we couldn’t handle-the answer is an ABSOLUTE no! He checked on us quite a few times and I know he would’ve... More
