Canoes & Kayaks

Canoes & Kayaks

There's no better way to navigate Palmetto Dunes' 11 miles of scenic lagoons than on a kayak or canoe from Hilton Head Outfitters. The lagoon's calm waters wind through the neighborhoods and golf courses of the resort, offering opportunities to commune with native birds, mammals and the Coastal Carolina ecosystem. Any morning spent on the lagoon is entertaining, informative and just plain fun. Or, choose a canoe or kayak at Shelter Cove Marina and go exploring the saltwater environment of Broad Creek. Either way, you're sure to have lots of fun!
