Best of Hilton Head

If you’re looking for a new way to experience the beauty of Hilton Head Island, you might consider renting a kayak and hitting the water. Hilton Head offers smooth currents and breathtaking scenery, and if you’re lucky, you might even be visited by some local marine wildlife along the way. There's never been a better time to visit Hilton Head, especially since it was just ranked the Number One Island in the Continental US by the readers of Travel + Leisure magazine for the 4th consecutive year!

3 Top Places to Rent Kayaks on Hilton Head Island

Kayaking is a great option for large groups, a few friends, or even for a solo adventure. To ensure a great experience, we’ve gathered some of the best places to rent kayaks on Hilton Head Head. 

#1 Kayak Hilton Head

Dave, Kayak Hilton Head’s owner, has been working on the beautiful waters of Hilton Head since 1995. He loves to teach visitors about the dolphins, birds, oysters, salt marsh and many other things that make our island so unique, and the best way to experience these things up close is on a kayak.

If you’re looking for a fun and educational experience that both parent and kids will love, then look no further than Kayak Hilton Head. They offer both single and double kayaks, and they are also one of the only tours of any kind that depart from their own private access to the water, which means there are no other tours or boats to distract or crowd you.

#2 Sea Monkeys Watersports

Sea Monkeys Watersports is located in Skull Creek. This location is one of our favorites because it is only a short kayak ride away from Pickney Island National Wildlife Refuge. Pickney Island is the perfect backdrop to admire the splendor of the Lowcountry as you’re paddling through the waterways.

Additionally, dolphin sightings are a daily occurrence in this area, which is always the best part of a successful kayaking excursion. They also offer both single and double kayaks for rentals for a minimal rental time of 1 hour.

#3 Outside Hilton Head

Outside Hilton Head started in 1979 as a windsurfing school operating off of the beach in Sea Pines. Ever since, Outside Hilton Head developed into the premier destination for outdoor Lowcountry adventures. What we love most about this company is their wide range of choices in terms of kayaking.

You can choose from a Guided Kayak Nature Tour, Kayak Fishing, Outback, Full Moon Kayak Tour, Fireworks Paddle, or May River History Paddle, to name a few. We are certain that there’s an option that will suit your exact needs when it comes to creating your perfect adventure.
