The Best Boats

Island Explorer offers perfectly designed 12 and 14-passenger boats that can accommodate small and large families and groups. Larger groups can reserve two or three boats and bring the whole crew. Our US Coast Guard certified Carolina Skiffs are custom-built for Island Explorer and designed to offer the smoothest and safest cruise on the island.


Our boats are heavily customized to Island Explorer specifications and according to the regulations of the US Coast Guard for certified tour vessels of their respective capacities. With comfortable cushioned seating for at least 12 adults and full viewing in all directions, these are the perfect boats to get your large family or group close to the dolphins and nature found around Hilton Head Island.

The Island Explorers carry shallow drafts making them perfect for easy landings at Vanishing Island, and a great boat to navigate the shallow waters of the Lowcountry marshes. Seating along the sides of the boats offer great viewing in every direction. Two seats in front of the console are protected from the sunlight by our bimini T-top. Whether you want sun or shade, there is a perfect seat for you on the Island Explorer 2.
