Meet for your “creek cat” tour dockside in Palmetto Bay Marina. Board your own boat and begin your 2-hour 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 after approximately two hours.
