Hilton Head Outfitters Island Adventure Blog

Hilton Head OutfittersTo help you with your Hilton Head Island vacation planning, we recently updated the Hilton Head Outfitters website to make reserving your equipment rentals in advance even simpler. Now, you can book everything from Hilton Head bike rentals to beach chairs with just a couple clicks of the mouse.

Go to the home page of our updated website at www.HiltonHeadOutfitters.com, and on the right hand side, you’ll find our new reservation system. Simply choose from bike rentals, kayak or canoe rentals, surfboard or paddleboard rentals, or beach chair and umbrella rentals. If you select “equipment” in the system, that will show you items, such as bike baskets, helmets and tag-a-long bikes for kids.

Select the dates you’ll need the items and the length of time, and you’ll be able to see what’s available and at what price. Then, you’ll add the items you’d like to reserve to your online shopping cart and then check out.

Reserving items like bikes ahead of time is important, especially during weekends and busier seasons on Hilton Head Island when we sometimes sell out of some rentals. Not only will you be assured a bike or kayak or beach chair will be waiting for you upon your arrival, but it’s one less thing you’ll need to worry about on your vacation.

You can also reserve your bikes via our mobile site if you’d prefer to do your booking on your smart phone or tablet device. Simply text BIKE to 843-627-0007 to get a link to the mobile booking site. One more tip for you: if you “like” us on Facebook, you can get a special promo code to save 15% on your total bike order.

Try our new site to book your next Hilton Head Island rentals and let us know what you think! Visit www.HiltonHeadOutfitters.com to give it a try.

Take a look at what some of our customers had to say about us on TripAdvisor:

Hilton Head Bike Rentals

“Dave the manager of the shop at Palmetto Dunes was fantastic. We came in with tires that needed a bit of air and Dave noticed the seat needed a little work. Five minutes later we were on our way. Thank you Dave and the crew at Hilton Head Outfitters / Palmetto Dunes”

“My son’s bikes brakes were not grabbing and he almost crashed. We stopped by Hilton Head Outfitters to ask for some help. They were more than willing to help. Dave the Manager was AMAZING! He made numerous adjustments on my son’s bike. He was patient, and asked my son to ride his ‘new’ bike so he could see the smile on his face. As if that wasn’t enough he didn’t charge us a penny! I think we’ll leave our bikes at home next year and just rent from here!!! Thanks again! You guys ROCK!!!”

Hilton Head Kayak Rentals

“I’ve never kayaked before, and being of the over-40 persuasion, I was a little worried about going overboard (literally!) someplace where I couldn’t fish myself out of the water easily. The staff at the Outfitters did a great job getting my friend and I set up (with life jackets) and ready to cruise the ‘lagoon’ as they call it. I shouldn’t have worried so much – we had a great time paddling around the back yards of the uber-big resort homes and golf course holes. Great afternoon!”

Hilton Head Surfing Lessons

“My children (a boy, age 11; and girl, age 9) had an amazing experience with Byron, the surfing instructor at the Outfitters in Palmetto Dunes. They were so eager to learn how to surf and matched all of their expectations! Byron was kind, funny and patient while they learned and made the whole lesson an adventure! We will definitely book Byron again and are looking forward to our next surf lesson!!”

“Our kids, ages 9-14, were thrilled to try surfing on our annual visit to HHI. While we weren’t sure how much they’d get out of a 90-minute class on the world’s calmest beach. We knew Byron from prior visits and figured it was worth a shot. Well, in less than 30 minutes, 2 of our 4 had good rides on their feet! And Byron and his team made sure each of our crew got a chance to get up and catch a few waves! It was a blast! Fun for everyone and photos and memories to last a lifetime! My daughter was so happy she asked if we can come back next year before we even left the beach!”

“My nine-year old daughter declared Surf School the best part of our family vacation! She took a group lesson with Byron (a.k.a. Surf Dog), two assistants and eight other students. As soon as we met Surf Dog, we knew it was going to be a fun morning. After a few minutes of instruction on the beach, all of the surf students were up and catching waves. Before the end of the lesson, some of the surfers had graduated to tricks! Surf Dog taught my daughter the ‘Dead Cockroach’ move, which kept her laughing days later! We will definitely be returning the surf school the next time we’re at HHI.”

Hilton Head Fishing Charters

“Chartered a fishing trip here. We caught big reds and Captain Trent was excellent. Lagoon fishing on still waters was perfect for kids without sea legs.”

“Captain Stacy is the bomb!! Our guys went on this charter last year, and booked again this year last minute. They got the guys in this year on a charter that went from 1-4 pm and they caught HUGE (a 30 lb and a 50 lb) Red fish! Stacy is so patient with the younger ones and knows his stuff from the area, where to go and how to get the bait fish and where to go to get the big ones! We will continue to make this an annual trip (the guys want to do a 6 hour next year) as long as it is with Stacy!!”

Hilton Head BikingWe know that riding a bike is great exercise, a chance to breathe fresh air and even stress reducing and a new study demonstrates yet another health benefit – weight loss for those who bike to work.

The study, from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and University College London and published on TheBMJ.com, seems to indicate that leaving your car at home – and either walking, biking or taking public transit – leads to healthier body weight. The authors also note evidence suggests higher obesity rates in areas that have larger declines in active travel.

Do you walk or ride your bike to work? If not, your vacation to Hilton Head Island is a great place to get started using a bike to commute. Because we have so many bike paths (50 miles to be exact!), you can safely bike nearly everywhere on the island. Plus, during the busy summer season, it’s nice not to have to get in car traffic and quickly be on your way via bike.

On your Hilton Head vacation, try biking to the beach, to lunch, to the grocery, to your golf round or to your tennis lesson. You can add accessories to your Hilton Head bike rentals like baskets to help carry your items along with you. You can also strap on a quality backpack and carry your items there.

We think you’ll see how fun and easy it is to ride a bike. You’ll be helping the environment, getting some great exercise and enjoying the beautiful outdoors.

Let us know if you keep on biking when you get home! It’ll do your body – and your mind – good.
