3 of the Best Bluffton Tours
May River Excursions
Since the spring of 2011, May River Excursions has been one of the best providers of high-quality outdoor adventures. Captain Chris began offering tours in a mere 6-passenger boat. Today, he operates a 5-boat fleet and a retail shop that he shares with family and friends. May River Excursions strives to show both locals and visitors alike a side of the Lowcountry they’ve never seen before! Each guided trip offers educational insight, incredible views, and glimpses into the May River’s one-of-a-kind ecology. On certain tours, your guide will even show you how fishing, shrimping, and crabbing were performed by previous generations! Choose between river, fishing, and water taxi excursions (to Daufuskie Island, where you’ll discover Silver Dew Winery!).
Old Town Bike Barn and Adventures
We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention Old Town Bike Barn & Adventures, our neighbor! Though not technically a Hilton Head bike rental company, Old Town Bike Barn and Adventures is the perfect option for blissful rides through The Promenade. In addition to a wide variety of bikes (for rent or purchase), this locally owned business specializes in bike repair, boat tours, sunset tours, swimming equipment, and much more! Our guests can walk over to this shop, which is located at 28 Dr. Mellichamp Drive in Old Town Bluffton.
A short ferry ride away from Old Town Bluffton is Daufuskie Island, a hidden gem that has played a vital role in the history of the Lowcountry. This off-the-beaten-path island is best explored on a Tour Daufuskie excursion. This company offers an incredible Native Gullah Tour of the island—we highly recommend checking it out!
