5 Memorable Ways to Spend Father’s Day on Hilton Head Island

Looking for the perfect Father's Day gift? A vacation to Hilton Head Island is the perfect present for dad. On America's Favorite Island®, you'll have access to some of the best activities that the World's Favorite Dad will definitely enjoy. The Lowcountry is filled with endless opportunities for outdoor activities, ranging from active and exhilarating to calm and relaxing. If you're celebrating dad with us, here are five incredibly memorable ways to enjoy Father's Day on Hilton Head Island:


A Family Bike Ride 

One of the best ways to kick Father's Day into high gear is a family bike ride. Voted as a Gold Level Bicycle-friendly destination by the American League of Bicyclists, the Lowcountry is the ideal destination to safely pedal around with dad. Over 60 miles of multi-use leisure pathways connect you to nearly every part of the Island, including our beautiful beaches. Don't worry, you don't need to pack your bike to enjoy cycling on Hilton Head Island. You can find your perfect two wheels with help from our local bike rental companies.

A Round of Golf 

Here on America's Favorite Island®, you'll have access to 23 world-class golf courses to delight dad with. So spend some extended quality time on the links and take a shot at some of Hilton Head Island's most challenging courses. Not sure where to tee off? You can’t go wrong with the Palmetto Dunes Ocean Resort Golf courses. Most notably the golf course designed by Arthur Hills. It features continuous  lines of dunes and thick stands of palmettos. This golf course takes full advantage of the area’s natural beauty, with the ocean breezes and lagoons adding an element of challenge to your game. It also happens to overlook the island’s one true lighthouse, the Rear Range Lighthouse, as well as one of Hilton Head Island’s oldest living oak trees. A perfect golf course for the dad that is also a history buff!

A Day on the Water 

Charter a boat to celebrate dad with some inshore, offshore, and deep-sea fishing on the beautiful waters surrounding Hilton Head Island. Whether dad is an amateur angler or a seasoned fisherman, he'll have plenty of options to catch something deliciously fresh for dinner! Jarvis Creek  is the perfect spot if you're visiting with the whole family. Dad will be able to teach the kiddos how to bait, fish, and reel in their first catch from the fishing dock, all while making wonderful memories together. 

For a more exhilarating fishing experience, charter a fishing boat and venture beyond the coastline. Hilton Head Yacht Charters  will take you to explore the ocean blue waters dotted with reefs and artificial wrecks. If your dad is an avid fisherman, surprise him with a deep-see excursion that will allow him to fish for the more elusive critters that call these deep waters home. Aboard one of the vessels of Outside Hilton Head, dad will have the opportunity to also try his hand at night shark fishing for the ultimate unique fishing experience.

A Nice Paddle 

For an activity that's a bit different but still sure to float everyone's boat, take dad kayaking, canoeing, or even paddleboarding and explore the salt marshes surrounding Hilton Head Island. SEAnic Paddle Co. offers sunrise and sunset tours to delight the nature lover's dads out there. In addition, Hilton Head Outfitters at Palmetto Dunes offers kayak and canoe rentals, so you can explore America's Favorite Island® with dad.

If your dad is not one to paddle around, then a relaxing day on one of our beautiful beaches will surely delight him. Picture it, dad with his toes in the sand, a cool drink in his hand, and his worries washing away with the tides. Sounds like a fantastic gift to us.

A Perfect Meal 

A day full of activities and running around with the kids is sure to make dad hungry. Celebrate him over a delicious meal from one of the many acclaimed restaurants on Hilton Head Island. Is dad a BBQ fanatic? Then a visit to Beach House BBQ Pit is in order. You'll be able to enjoy some delicious comfort food and southern hospitality. If you want a more elevated dining experience to celebrate Father's Day, head to the Old Oyster Factory. This local favorite serves some of the freshest seafood on the Island while featuring one of the Lowcountry's best panoramic waterfront views. Holy Tequila is also a great option if you're looking for modern Mexican cuisine and delicious Margaritas. For a family-friendly option, look no further than Skull Creek Dockside. This eatery features an extensive menu for all to enjoy, and there's always a band to serenade as you enjoy your meal and the view.

Don't forget to raise a glass to the best dad in the world at Hilton Head Distillery! You’ll be able to celebrate dad while learning about distilling traditions unique to South Carolina. Enjoy a tour of the distillery or join them for a master mixology class and treat dad to an array of libations.
