Hilton Head Water Sports & Activities

Dive in to a day of fun on Hilton Head Island!

Hilton Head Island is surrounded by water, so naturally, there’s plenty of fun to be had on - or in - the waves. With some of the warmest waters on the Eastern Seaboard, nearly every day is a beach day on Hilton Head Island! There are plenty of ways to make a splash: set sail on a fishing charter or hop aboard a dolphin-watching cruise, grab a paddle and head out on a kayak or paddleboard adventure. Or, try surfing, sailing or waterskiing. Whether you prefer to be in the water, or on it, there’s a Hilton Head Island water activity for everyone.
