Hilton Head Sailing Tours & Charters

A sailed yacht at sunset.

Hilton Head’s sailing excursions offer an interesting and often quieter alternative to the dozens of tours of the area available on powered boats (thematically, the sailing tours are the same — nature and sightseeing, sunset cruises and trips coinciding with the island’s weekly summer fireworks displays).

Sailboats range from very small recreational sailing boats, through family-sized sailed yachts, to large vessels able to accommodate dozens of people. You can choose either a tour or a charter for your trip.

Tours are generally open to the public and priced on a per-person basis. Charters are for your own group only, and can offer more flexibility than a public trip, in addition to a private and more intimate experience. If you have a group of five or six people, the price of a private charter is often comparable to a public tour.

Best Private Boat Charters on Hilton Head Island

There's nothing better than a day out on the water.

sailboat charter hilton head

Mild climate and calm waters around Hilton Head Island 's flats, bays, and ocean make it idyllic to go on a private boat tour any time of the year. You can explore the coastline, watch the local wildlife, wave at animated dolphins, and soak in a glorious sunset.

Sail along Calibogue Sound, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Intracoastal Waterway, and enjoy views of some of Hilton Head 's landmarks, such as Harbour Town Lighthouse, South Beach area, Daufuskie Island , and Baratara Island. Spend a few hours swimming, fishing, or simply relaxing on floating platform lounge chairs as you feel the slow pace of the Lowcountry.

Renting a private boat charter allows you the flexibility to imagine your own itinerary, selection of activities, and dining stops along the way. Create new memorable experiences with one of these locally owned private boat charters on Hilton Head Island.

Outside Hilton Head

Setting off at Shelter Cove, Outside Hilton Head's private charter explores the marsh habitats and a wide expanse of sand, known as Vanishing Island, in small boats that accommodate 6, 12, or 15 people. All tours are led by knowledgeable U.S. Coast Guard licensed captains who are also trained interpretive naturalists. Some activities to try during the charter include backwater boating, dolphin watching, tubing, and beachcombing.

Hilton Head Yacht Charter

The Caribbean-style term charter offers unique itineraries to experience the area from the water. Hilton Head Yacht Charter has options to book a private cruise for up to 12 people, for just dinner, the entire day, or up to three days, where you can head all the way up to Charleston, South Carolina. On board, you can learn to waterski and Sea-Bob, and be pampered by the top executive chefs from Hilton Head Island and surrounding areas for a private dinner on board.

Salty Dog Picnic Cruise

Grab your closest friends for a private scenic cruise around Calibogue Sound and surrounding waters, with plenty of craft beers and wine on board. In addition to the boat and captain, Salty Dog extends the option to cater a custom picnic basket filled with pimento and crab dip, shrimp rolls, and Key Lime pie, so you can sip and savor the flavors of the south.

Off The Hook Fishing Charters

Cast a line in the Carolina waters for seasonal fish and keep an eye out for birds, dolphins, and other wildlife while aboard Off The Hook's 17-, 22-, or 25-foot boats. Equipped with the finest fly and spinning tackle, all your fishing gear, fishing license, cooler, and ice are included with the charter. You can also take back your fresh catch to cook at home.

Vagabond Cruise

Vagabond Cruise has a fleet of luxury yachts that host over 100 private charters each year, ranging from weddings and corporate retreats to family reunions and birthday parties. The private customizable cruises sail to neighboring Savannah and Daufuskie Island, give a hands-on shrimping experience, and act as picturesque backdrops for exclusive celebrations.

If you want a truly unique adventure, the hand-crafted, 38-foot, solar-powered electric SUMO trimaran operated by H2O Sports is the fastest sailboat on Hilton Head Island.

Florida doesn’t have a monopoly on shark attacks. Here are the last 3 to happen in Hilton Head

W ith the many recent shark attacks in the Southeastern region of the country, including one from Walton County along the Florida and Alabama border that has garnered national attention, it’s important to note past shark attacks on the island. Shark sightings aren’t as infrequent as many might think for this popular beach destination.

In 2021, The Island Packet reported shark attacks off the island on two separate occasions.

In May 2021, a 26-year-old man was swimming at Burkes beach on Hilton Head when he suddenly felt pressure as teeth bit into his flesh. This shark, which was estimated to be about 5 feet long, bit Wyatt Bowman in his heel and lower ankle. When emergency medical services arrived, they told him the bite was serious. Following orthopedic surgery, Bowman was unable to walk in the three to four weeks following, as previously reported by The Island Packet .

In August 2021, a lifeguard was bitten near the Barrington Arms Villas complex at Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort on Hilton Head while doing a check for currents, which was said to be routine. The lifeguard was reported to have had several lacerations following the incident and was treated at a hospital in Savannah for non-life-threatening injuries. At the time, Lowcountry shark expert Chip Michalove noted that it was likely a blacktip shark, according to a previously published story by The Island Packet .

In February of 2022, The Island Packet reported when the same Hilton Head charter captain, Chip Michalove, caught and tagged another 10-foot great white off the island. One of his boat mates, Ben Friedman, jumped into the ocean with the shark to retrieve a fishing line that had been snagged on a barnacle under the middle of their boat’s hull. Friedman was successful in freeing the line and remained unharmed.

In the summer of 2018, an 11-year-old Hampton County boy named Jei Turrell was bitten by a shark at Hilton Head, according to The Island Packet . A 5-foot shark sunk its teeth into his forearm while he and his brother were splashing in waist-deep water on a Hilton Head beach.

It was reported that shark attacks doubled in 2017 in South Carolina with 10 recorded attacks, eight of which were in Hilton Head. Documented shark attacks in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans along the U.S. coasts have been on the rise in recent years, a trend that researchers say has occurred because more people are visiting the beach with warming temperatures, an improving economy, and a recovering shark population that was nearly annihilated from overfishing in the 1980s and 90s.

Hilton Head Island is known to have shark sightings and “feeding-time” can even be seen along the island’s beaches on occasion. When fish begin popping out of the water along the shoreline or further out, sharks may well be in the area.
