Wondrous encounters on a dolphin tour
Take a cruise from Shelter Cove Marina to enjoy dolphins frolicking in the Hilton Head Island waterways. Bottlenose dolphins are a common resident in our salt marshes and inlets. Choose from one of our many dolphin tours and learn all about these majestic creatures with our guides.
Find tranquility with a sailing charter
With some of the largest sailing charters available on Hilton Head Island, Shelter Cove Marina provides the best opportunity to set sail on the picturesque waterways of the south. There’s nothing more relaxing than a sailboat cruise. Relax during one of our morning, afternoon or evening sunset sails.
Get back to nature on a nature cruise
See bald eagles, egrets, herons, osprey, pelicans, Atlantic bottlenose dolphins, maybe even a shark! Or enjoy an adventure along the Broad Creek and learn to crab for local blue crabs.
Spectacular fireworks cruises
All summer, every Tuesday night, HarbourFest Fireworks take place at Shelter Cove Harbour & Marina, and the best way to view the show is from the water. We have more fireworks tour options available than any other marina on the Island. Choose from large boats or sailboats, or book a private charter for you and your family or group.
Due to COVID-19 fireworks shows may be canceled. Please check the schedule here.
