New Catamaran Boat Tours Offer Fun Way to Get in Midst of Nature on Hilton Head Island

Back to Press Releases

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. -- There’s a new way to explore the beauty of one of the south’s most natural islands that lets visitors get up close with dolphins, birds, manatees and more. In March, Backwater Cat Adventure will begin offering boat tours of Hilton Head Island’s Broad Creek via a low-seated, two-person catamaran that goes up to 30 miles per hour.

Leaving from Shelter Cove Marina directly across from Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort, the company will offer professionally-guided tours via Craigcat boats, which are described as “go carts on water” and drive with the feel of a hovercraft. The two-and-a-half hour tours include sightseeing, nature and sunset tours, as well as special HarbourFest fireworks tours during the summer. The guide also takes photos of the adventure and emails them to participants afterward.

Tours are $135 per adult and $110 for children ages 5-12. Drivers must be at least 18 years old with a valid driver’s license, while passengers need only to be ages 5 and older. For more information or to book a tour, visit or call (855) 869-3480. Backwater Cat Adventure also operates boat tours on Marco Island and Amelia Island in Florida.
