Kayakers paddling through Hilton Head Island's Broad Creek in South Carolina
Kayaking on Broad Creek.

Several outfitters offer guided kayaking trips on Broad Creek, the waterway that runs like a shoelace through the island. Although there is a slight current that comes and goes with the tides, the creek offers calm, protected waters to paddle, making it an ideal venue for beginners.

Kayaking through the salt marsh, you're likely to see a great variety of lowcountry wildlife, including egrets, herons and maybe even a mink. But the big headliners here are always the dolphins who venture regularly into the creek in search of their next meal.

All you have to do now is book your trip. Among the outfitters offering guided tours are:

Water-Dog Outfitters - (843) 686-3554
Outside Hilton Head - (843) 686-6996
Kayak Hilton Head - (843) 684-1910

For those of you looking for a workout to go with your outdoor adventure, Outside Hilton Head also offers stand up paddle boarding.
