Hilton Head’s Most Popular Water Experiences

Hilton Head, South Carolina, is a favorite destination for vacationers. This Southeast coastal island offers plenty of shopping, dining, golfing options, and numerous attractions. In addition, Hilton Head’s proximity to the warm Gulf Stream waters makes it a pleasant spot even during the winter.

Hilton Head is also popular with water lovers. In addition, the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway passes right through Hilton Head. Sailors and powerboaters often stay in the city’s marinas while traveling north or south. Check out the boats during your visit.

Nearshore or Offshore Fishing Trips
The South Carolina coast is renowned for its fishing experiences. You can kick back and enjoy the trip with no responsibility by booking a captained boat rental. And, you can soak up lots of local fishing knowledge while you bask in the balmy weather.

Choose an inshore charter, and check out the prime fishing spots in Port Royal Sound and the nearby creeks. Or, book an ocean-worthy boat and head out to the Gulf Stream on an overnight trip. However you slice it, a Lowcountry fishing trip will indulge your fishing addiction.

Kayaking or Paddle Boarding
Rent a sleek-looking kayak for the day, and glide silently through the salt marshes and creeks. Keep an eye out for the local wildlife, such as seabirds and dolphins. Share the experience with a friend, or book a guided tour for real insider knowledge.

For a different way to get on the water, rent a stand-up paddleboard for a few hours. Broad Creek and Skull Creek are favorite paddling spots. If you’re a yoga enthusiast, try taking a paddle board-based yoga class.

Thrill-filled Parasailing Adventure
Enjoy amazing views of Hilton Head Island on a parasailing expedition. A speedy powerboat will tow you while your parachute keeps you aloft. While you soar over the water, you’ll get a bird’s eye view of the boats cruising the waters below.

Book a solo trip, or fly with a friend. Triple-rider trips are also available. A parasailing trip is a memorable experience you’ll likely want to repeat.

Hilton Head’s Best Bodies of Water for Boating

Port Royal Sound

Beautiful Port Royal Sound is the gateway to a veritable boating playground. This coastal sound is adjacent to three sizable islands north of Hilton Head Island. Technically, Port Royal Sound is also an Atlantic Ocean inlet.

Port Royal Sound’s wide-open waters are home to numerous recreational boats. The vessels range from small boats to husky sportfish yachts. Non-boat owners can easily book a daily boat rental.

Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway

The Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (or ICW) is a 1,100-mile north-to-south passage inshore of the Atlantic Ocean. Powerboats and sailboats frequently use the ICW to travel to/from their wintering spots.

Commercial traffic, such as tugs and barges, also regularly traverses the ICW’s well-charted route. Cruising the ICW for a day is an enjoyable experience. However, traveling at a safe speed is important, and waking sailboats is considered bad form.

Atlantic Ocean

Hilton Head is located on a South Carolina Lowcountry barrier island. Besides its protected inshore coast, the island has 12 miles of gorgeous Atlantic Ocean beach. Not surprisingly, sunbathing and beachcombing are popular activities.

Hilton Head’s Atlantic coast offers surfing, waterskiing, boarding, and sailing opportunities. If you’re focused on fishing, snag a captained boat rental and head offshore to try your luck in the Gulf Stream.
