Have The Whole Boat To Yourselves
For this summer, all tours will be Private Charters.
We will not be mixing families or groups.
There is a minimum charge of 6 guests to book a Private Charter.
Additional guests may be added up to a total of 12.
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.
Every trip is a unique experience. Dolphins abound in the Hilton Head waters, and you'll enjoy the thrill of seeing them up close aboard Island Explorer's safe, comfortable boats.
Our experienced Captains engage, entertain and educate young and old alike.
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 hours gives us plenty of time to find dolphins.
Hilton Head tides create an ever-changing environment. On the High Tide the salt marsh is filled with water and the horizons are broad and deep. The scenery is magnificent. On the Low Tide the ocean recedes to reveal the complexity of life in the marsh.
SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
Choose a cool, early morning trip. Bask in the midday sun. Or enjoy the serentity of a Hilton Head sunset. We offer cruises throughout the day.
THREE HOUR EXPEDITION
Our Three-Hour Beach Combing Expedition to "Vanishing Island™" starts at The Old Oyster Factory docks near the top of Broad Creek. As we glide through the Lowcountry Salt Marsh, you'll watch for dolphins, birds, and beautiful scenery.
VANISHING ISLAND APPEARS...
Leaving Broad Creek, our fast, comfortable expedition boat brings us quickly across the Calibogue (pronounced "Kali-Bogee") Sound, past Daufuskie Island, and all the way to "Vanishing Island".
Years ago this area was simply a small sand bar called Grenadier Shoals, but over the years, sand eroding from Hilton Head beaches has collected here and created a large expanse of sand that is exposed only at low tide each day.
