Join a naturalist guide in a kayak exploration of Jarvis Creek. Paddle through the salt marsh looking for bottle-nosed dolphins, wading birds and other local wildlife. Jarvis Creek is a small creek in the north end of Hilton Head Island not typically visited by recreational boaters. The absence of fast moving boats, the calm waters, and the many inlets and side creeks make it the ideal location to see wildlife. Given the physical requirements of this tour, we do not allow children younger than 5 years of age to participate. Children ages 5 to 12 have to be in a double kayak with an adult.
Tuesday, Wednesday, & Thursday from 10:00am-12:00pm.
$32 Adult / $28 Child (ages 5–12) / No children under the age of 5 please.
