There isn’t a better destination for Father’s Day than Hilton Head. A variety of outings, ranging from the active and exciting to the soothing and relaxing, offer the ideal backdrop to celebrate dad on Father’s Day. So, what do you do when there are so many great options on Hilton Head? We bring you the top eight to help you streamline your celebration and make the most of your day out with Pops!

 1. The Early Bird Gets the Fish

Whether you are amateur anglers or seasoned fishermen (or women!), you can jump aboard for inshore, offshore & deep-sea fishing on Hilton Head Island! Outside Hilton Head and Hilton Head Fishing Charters offer charter fishing, kayak fishing, or private family fishing trips daily. Their experienced guides will help you look for the best types of fish depending on the location, time of the day, and season. However, if dad is not the fishing type, we will help get you off the hook with the next suggested outing.

2. Kick the Day into High Gear

For an early morning workout, power down the beach on a fat-tire bike with dad. With the sound of the crashing waves in the background and the morning breeze in your face, this is the perfect way to kick Father’s Day into high gear on Hilton Head. Need bike rentals?

 3. Tee it Up “Fore” Father’s Day

A golf outing is not only the quintessential Father’s Day gift but also the perfect opportunity to celebrate Father’s Day on Hilton Head. Spend extended quality time on the links with dad and take a shot at one of Hilton Head Island’s world-renowned golf courses. This will certainly be an under-par Father’s Day celebration!

 4. From The Masters to the Pitmasters 

After securing the leader in the clubhouse title, head to one of the stellar BBQ joints on the island for some finger-licking lunch! Recharge your proverbial batteries for an exciting afternoon and evening ahead by visiting Bullies BBQ, One Hot Mama’s, and Bluffton BBQ. These spots are loved by locals and visitors alike, and they will help you step up to the Father’s Day plate with excellent BBQ meals and a no-frills ambiance.

5. Take Dad up the Creek WITH a Paddle

For an activity that will float everyone’s boat, take dad canoeing or kayaking and scope out Hilton Head’s saltmarshes. Kayak Hilton Head or Saltmarsh Paddle Tours both offer excellent guided trips, packages, and equipment rental, but don’t go overboard. If dad prefers a more laid-back approach to Father’s Day celebrations, the following activities may be perfect for him while visiting the island.

6. Go on a Scenic, Smooth Sailing

Hop aboard a yacht or catamaran with Pops and take in the pristine water views as you cruise across the Atlantic Ocean. With many companies like  Salt Marsh Sailing, you can book sunset and private cruises for you and the entire family to set sail and enjoy a soothing Lowcountry journey on the scenic Hilton Head waters.

7. From Sunset Sails to a Seafood Spread

Dads will need to be treated to one of the many Hilton Head restaurants offering world-class fare and superb scrumptious seafood dishes. Choose from The Black Marlin, Captain Woody's, or Steamer Seafood to treat dad and everyone in the family to a delicious dining experience!
