Great Trip!

I had a blast fishing with Jeremy at Palmetto Bluff. He really knows the water and is quickly able to dial in the fishing to match the conditions. I would highly recommend booking a trip with him and plan to do the same when I return.

The Most Fun Bass Fishing

I did a kayak fishing trip with Jacob last week at Montage Palmetto Bluff. It was the best time of all. I'm a beginner. Jacob was patient and knowledgable. He scouted the area beforehand so we knew where the fish were biting. I couldn't believe it but I caught 3 good size bass and he took my picture with the catch. It was a blast! It inspired me to take some fishing lessons this spring.

Amazing tubing adventure at Palmetto Bluff!

Our family had the best time tubing with Duke on the May River! Duke was a terrific driver and guide - he accommodated our kids different needs with speed and excitement, took us to see Shell Island and made sure that we saw lots of dolphins!!! We highly recommend Outside Hilton Head!
