Rent a pontoon boat on your trip to Hilton Head Island and explore this luscious landscape at your own pace (note: somebody in the group must have prior boating experience).

Great experience! Beckett helped us out and was very knowledgable as we chose the self drive option. My only negative was not being aware that we had to pay for fuel separately so that was an unexpected $40 charge that I would have wanted to know about when I first signed up.
