Each year, millions flock to Hilton Head Island for a luxurious, family and fun-filled getaway. Aside from visiting the island’s 12 miles of pristine, white sand beaches, going on a dolphin tour, completing an escape room or biking throughout the island, there are many other ways to make lifelong memories on Hilton Head, reports Yahoo.

Take a helicopter ride

Want to see a bird’s eye view of Hilton Head Island? Travel high in the sky with Hilton Head Helicopters and view the island from the clouds. The company offers nine different tours that will certainly make for a thrilling memory for years to come. Budget-friendly options are also featured, such as the “Ocean View” tour that begins at just $39 per person.

Many tours will take you over different parts of the island, but other options are available as well. These options include tours that will take you over Old Town Bluffton, remote islands and downtown Savannah or a remote island populated by over 3,000 monkeys.

Rent a yacht

Rent a yacht from Hilton Head Yacht Charter and spend a day on the open ocean from Hilton Head Island. The company offers private day charters, sunset yacht charters, on the water dining and a full day yacht tour, which is a combined experience of the prior two services. Guests may choose their guests, activities, menus, and everything else available. Cocktails, water sports, lounging, butler service and other amenities all await those that choose to spend the day on one of the company’s yachts.

The charter headquarters can be found within the Shelter Cove Harbour Shops at 1 Shelter Cove Lane on Hilton Head Island.

Go horseback riding under live oaks

Take your family, friends or other half horseback riding through the island’s south end with Lawton Stables. The beloved stable has been named as a ‘must do’ on Hilton Head by many and is a place the entire family can enjoy. Lawton Stables’ trail rides allow guests to fully immerse themselves in the Lowcountry environment as they make their way through trails in over 600 acres of the Sea Pines Forest Preserve.

Pony rides are available for children aged 7 and under and there is a free animal farm with several small animals to feed and for everyone to enjoy.

Become a pirate

Ahoy, scallywags! Become a pirate by spending the day with Pirates of Hilton Head. Join them on the island’s first and only custom pirate ship as your kids will become part of a pirate crew throughout the entirety of your journey. Everyone on board will get their own pirate name, learn how to talk like a pirate and search for treasure on the Hilton Head Pirate Cruise. The 1.5 hour cruise has a $39 admission and $10 admission for infants.

Meet a mermaid or become one yourself

Hang out with the Mermaid of Hilton Head or even become a mermaid yourself! Grab your family and embark on the mermaid encounter tour. Although the tour doesn’t begin until mid-May, it’s best to plan ahead. This 75-minute tour provides children with tattoos and magic name tags that grow wildflowers if planted, bubble wands, an opportunity to meet a mermaid, a restroom aboard a cover boat and other opportunities throughout the tour.

For more mermaid fun, travel to the Mermaid of Hilton Head retail store, located at Tanger 2 Outlets, or become a mermaid with a special mermaid experience and professional photo shoot. Both children and adults can become a mermaid and may choose between options such as the beach at sunset, an indoor beach experience or a bachelorette experience.
