Looking for an intense and exhilarating way to explore Hilton Head? Try getting wet and wild on a wave runner – a very safe and fun water activity for all ages.
This water sport has been around since 1929 when a one-man standing unit was called the “ski board,” similar to a powered surfboard. The present day wave runner was invented in 1968 as a “bus for the sea.”
Hilton Head’s waters are safe and uncrowded so you can feel free to go “fast and bouncy” or “slow and cruise.” It is not uncommon for a dolphin to swim along side of you.
All wave runner companies rent by the hour and offer both single, double and triple passenger machines. You need a valid drivers license to rent, and note that some age and weight restrictions may apply.
Once you have checked in and picked out your flotation vest, you must review all the operational and safety features of your craft as well as the rules of the waterway. You will be accompanied to the riding area by a guide who will show you the boundaries of the riding area and stay within sight to make sure you’re safe.
