Hilton Head, SC is the perfect place to enjoy being out and about in the sunshine! In addition to our gorgeous beaches, our charming island is home to a variety of thrilling outdoor activities that are guaranteed to get your heart racing. To help you make the most of your next vacation, we have put together a guide to the top five outdoor adventures in Hilton Head.

1. Sky Pirate Parasail

For unparalleled views of Hilton Head, it’s hard to beat Sky Pirate Parasail. From 500 feet in the air, you’ll take in breathtaking vistas of the coast, the water, and the Low Country’s signature wildlife (dolphins, herons, and egrets). Guests can choose to stay high and dry or they can take a dip in the ocean when their parasail is brought back in. Every Sky Pirate Parasail tour is led by a United States Coast Guard Captain with over a decade of experience. A teenage girl at a zipline course.

2. ZipLine Hilton Head

Ziplining is another one of the best outdoor adventures in Hilton Head! When you take a 2-hour canopy tour with ZipLine Hilton Head, you will conquer eight interconnected ziplines that offer stunning views of the trees, marshes, and Broad Creek Marina. The course is designed to start “low and slow” and gradually get higher and faster. For the grand finale, guests will race each other on a 900 foot-long dual zipline. Participants must be at least 10 years old and weigh between 80 and 250 pounds.

3. Aerial Adventure Hilton Head

Broad Creek Marina is also home to Aerial Adventure Hilton Head, a self-guided challenge course in the sky. As you make your way through the course, you’ll have the chance to jump through hoops and nets, cross swinging bridges and swaying tunnels, and climb a variety of obstacles. Guests wear helmets and harnesses, so you don’t have to worry about losing your balance. Aerial Adventure Hilton Head categorizes all of its courses by difficulty level: Green (easy and kid-friendly), Blue (intermediate and challenging), or Black (for the experts).
