Here’s a new one – a two seat, down-low compact power catamaran that reaches speeds up to 30 miles an hour! And you drive it yourself! Think of it as a combination of a boat, waverunner and kayak.
This unique watercraft, called a Backwater Cat, has been improved greatly in safety, stability and fun over the previously used CraigCat. This sporty runabout has really caught on as the perfect way to tour the marshes and open waters of the Lowcountry.
Backwater Cat Adventure offers professionally guided sightseeing and nature tours daily from Shelter Cove Harbour Marina. After a brief training session, your guide will lead you down Broad Creek, past stately waterfront mansions, out onto Calibogue Sound. From there you will tour past Daufuskie Island and Harbour Town, all the while learning about Hilton Head’s history and routinely observing dolphin and other sea life just a few feet away from your boat.
Tours are available in the morning, afternoon, and at sunset. They also offer a special Tuesday night fireworks tour during the summer. All equipment (including life vests) and refreshments are included. There are some age and weight restrictions. Tours times are seasonal so make sure you book online or call ahead.
