3hr Kids Discovery Tour


Let "Kids be Kids" with the most hands on tour Hilton Head has to offer. As mini "Marine Biologists" we pull nets and inspect crab pots, learn how to handle small fishes and crustaceans, even learn skills they can take home! Best for growing minds!


Ive been successful with kids because of one mindset, Safety is number one and Fun is a very close number two. Being good with kids isn't taught, its just who I am. Bringing kids out into Nature is my passion. The 3hrs Kids Discovery Tour is exactly the one of a kind hands on nature experience your looking for. All with the patience and guidance of a seasoned professional local captain that has a passion to teach thirsty young minds. "We teach them skills they can use we they get home or sometimes later that week", for some travelers. Most days we cast a net off the side of the boat to catch all types of sea creatures. with each of the kids primed waiting to scoop them up and put them in their appropriate buckets, livewell tanks, or overboard. So many different creatures to come into contact with and learn about. Probably the most fun the kids have are playing with fish in the bucket, maybe naming one of them Freddy and them setting him free to swim another day.

The more outside time they acquire away from digital learning, the more children develop leadership skills and out of the box thinking. Playing with sticks or in this case getting hands dirty using nets with shrimps, fishes, and crabs is another way to expose them to real life activity and movement.

Let kids be kids on the most hands on educational boat ride Hilton head island has to offer!
