Fresh shrimp, great time

One of the most memorable family activity! We love shrimp and this was a great trip. Heard the story of Hilton island. When the shrimps were caught Captain Spike went through the pile and explained all the different types of fish that was also caught. Good to see they threw back into ocean and didn’t let them suffer out of water too much Kids were able to touch the starfish that was caught in trap. Shrimp gets divided by groups , so if u have a group of 6+ you get the same baggie amount as the group of 2 ppl. Guess it just makes it easier to divide them quickly Also can purchase refreshments on boat, bc it can get pretty hot especially waiting for the trip to start.

Nice time on the water. Interesting to learn how to take the head off the shrimp and see the other catch. Dolphins around the boat was great!!!

What a fun excursion!

Great tour. The captain and first mate were very knowledgeable and engaging. We saw dolphin and did catch some shrimp! Best part was after they brought the nets up, explaining all the creatures (starfish, baby sharks, squid) and letting us touch the sharks and hold the squids and starfish. Then we got to 'pop' the shrimp. This tour is great for ages 5 and over. The littler ones may get bored trolling, and it was hot going w/ the wind.

We loved this excursion! The crew was knowledgeable and on time! Water, soda, beer/wine and snacks were available at a reasonable cost if you want it. They explained what the process was and how to keep other sea animals safe while trawling. We caught a baby shark as well as some star fish, flounder, trout, squid, a manta ray and a ribbon fish! A very laid back and interesting tour! We are glad we did it! We were able to take home a decent amount of shrimp and it was delicious!!

Awesome exposure to various sea life

If you want to see dolphins this is the way. Once the nets were lowered and dragging the bottom of the bay, the dolphins showed up. And they were a joy to watch. Saw various sea life once the nets were hoisted up and the catch spilled out onto the sorting table. Took home plenty of shrimp for 2 meals. Would highly recommend this adventure and would do it again. We did a 4pm tour and the bay was very calm most of the time.

Spike and Lauren were great. Kids had a fantastic time. We were even greeted by dolphins upon our return. Spike made sure everyone on the boat had the opportunity to watch the Dolphins

Our shrimping experience was canceled due to Hurricane Elsa. While disappointing, the staff was so professional about keeping in touch and finally refunding our money. We would definitely try again!

Awesome Experience

This was one of the best experiences I’ve had in my life and was by far the best part of my trip to the Hilton Head area. Myself and my family were able to enjoy the feeling of an ocean cruise on the way out, while also learning about and seeing ocean life such as dolphins, stingrays, squid, and of course, shrimp. Overall, this was a great experience for people of all ages and I’d recommend this excursion to anyone who is interested.
