Do you feel as though you have been doing the same old activities on all your vacations lately? Go to the beach, play a round of golf, eat a nice dinner … repeat. Maybe it’s time to shake things up a little the next time you come to visit Hilton Head. You may have done the usual nature walk or historical tour, but what if you tried something a little more out of the ordinary? There are ways to explore the natural surroundings of the island beyond the typical bike ride or guided tour. Try one of these unconventional tours of Hilton Head.

Creek Cat Tour

One of the best things about an island is everything that you’ll find in and around the water. The best way to explore that area? A creek cat! A creek cat is like a sit-down-style jet ski. You and an over-age-five passenger can follow your guide around the island at a comfortable 25 mph as you explore exotic areas that you can’t get to in any other way. Set aside two hours for this tour and be prepared to see things you’ve never seen before.

Zip Line Tour

Come on, you know you’ve always wanted to do a zip line! Imagine learning all about Hilton Head Island as you’re cruising along the canopy. If you’re looking for great aerial views of the island, this is your tour! Between zips, experience the spiral staircase and swinging sky bridge. It will be an event you’ll never forget.

Parasailing Tour

If you really like being high in the air, you can also tour the island by parasailing. Instead of looking at the tops of trees this time, you can look down to see the ocean. You’ll be amazed at what you will see swimming in the depths below. It may be the best way to see where the dolphins are hanging out.


No matter which of these tours of Hilton Head Island you choose, you won’t be left disappointed. So maybe it’s time to try a tour in a way you’ll never forget!
