How To Find Dolphins on Hilton Head Island

Image result for hilton head dolphins

Dolphins are not hard to spot in Hilton Head’s waters. Dolphins usually are spotted feeding at low tide each day in the near by creeks and rivers, such as Skull Creek, Chechessee River, Colleton River, and the Broad River. Use this tide chart to figure out the best time each day to go out and find Dolphins. At high tide, you can also find dolphins, usually socializing and playing in larger herd numbers. They are more playful and social at high tide because they have already eaten at low tide.

Many of our properties at Beach Properties of Hilton Head are on great locations to see Dolphins. We also have several boating excursions on our Advantage Program that take you right out up close and personal with Dolphins. Check out our website and current specials going on for the holiday season to book your next vacation. Hilton Head Island is a great place to vacation in the final months of the year and especially a great place to spend your family holiday. Remember, there is nothing like a holiday at the beach!
