The Outdoor Enthusiast

For the dad who is interested in all the sights, sounds, and experiences nature has to offer on Hilton Head Island, we have an array of activities for you to choose from.

From bikes, to renting kayaks and canoes in our 11-mile lagoon system along with catch and release fishing, and even surf lessons, Hilton Head Outfitters has everything you need to create the perfect recreational escape for Dad on Hilton Head Island.

Spending all that time outdoors requires proper sun protection. The Koorginal Mens Hastings Surf Straw hat is made of 100% SeaGrass and with a sweat band made from elastic providing a snug fit, Dad will be shaded at the beach, fishing, boating, or just exploring the outdoors. The Surf Straw hat is available at Hilton Head Outfitters for $34.99.

Help Dad protect his belongings during his adventures with Geckobrands super lightweight and collapsible waterproof packs. These packs travel with ease taking up very little space and weight. Available as a Waist Pack for $24.99 and a 30L Backpack for $39.99 at Hilton Head Outfitters. Call Hilton Head Outfitters at 866-650-4125 to learn more.

The Mariner

For the man who was born to be on the water, head on over to Shelter Cove Harbour and Marina.

From there, Dad can enjoy fishing charters, dolphin tours, nature cruises, sailing charters, and a plethora of water sports! Pretty much every activity a mariner could want to partake in!

For the dad who can be found enjoying the day on the water, the Toadfish Non-tipping cup holders and can coolers will bring their boat game to the next level. The first of its kind, the SmartGrip technology allows the can coolers and cup holders to stick to any smooth surface. So if rocky waters are ahead, Dad’s drink will remain upright, accident-free, and icy cold. As an added bonus, for every product sold, Toadfish will replant new oyster beds to help clean the coastal waters. These innovative cup holders can be found at the Shelter Cove Marina Ship’s Store priced at $26 each. Call the Marina Ship's Store at 866-400-7894 to learn more.
