  • Choose among multiple departure times per day to fit into your schedule
  • Observe local wildlife, perhaps even dolphins
What to Expect
Meet for your “creek cat” tour dockside in Palmetto Bay Marina. Board your own boat and begin your 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.

Had an excellent time touring today with Captain John (despite him being a USC fan). Creek Cats were super fun to drive! Saw numerous dolphins and learned a little about the local area. Would definitely recommend!

Capt Ben reached out and offered to switch to the 2 seater red boats (Dingy) due to high winds. Alex took us out on the 64 deg windy day and we had a blast. He kept a lookout for dolphins and we actually were able to get really close to them toward the end of the trip. Next
