Slicing through Hilton Head’s sparkling waters aboard a sail boat, with the warm sun shining above and the fresh wind blowing through your hair, invigorates the senses and relaxes the mind, providing the perfect excursion for families, friends and lovers.
Numerous companies on Hilton Head offer an array of sailboat charters and rentals. Some offer narrated ecology and sightseeing tours as well as the ever-popular “Happy Hour” sunset sails. You can even sail aboard a 12-meter America’s Cup boat once skippered by Dennis Conner. There are small charters (two to six passengers) as well as large group charters (up to 49 passengers). All are USCG-approved and captained. Some boats are single-hull; some are multi-hulled (catamaran or trimaran).
Most charters offer morning, afternoon, and sunset sails. Some will take you out to watch the summer fireworks displays or on moonlight cruises.
Chartered sailing excursions will take you through the Broad Creek, Calibogue Sound, or Port Royal Sound, giving you glimpses of the most coveted waterfront properties in the Lowcountry as well as natural, untouched land that provides a habitat for hundreds of species of birds and marine life. And you’re bound to see dolphin.
If you would like to go on your own private sailing adventure, you can rent a sailboat, or even take a sailing lesson.
