Back to Inside Outside News


Savannah, Georgia is often associated with old Southern charms, like pitchers of homemade sweet tea, evenings spent catching fireflies, and the spooky lore of nearby cemeteries. If you spend even a minute outside, you’ll notice that the surrounding nature equally compliments the story with moss-draped oaks and foliage native to Georgia. Outside Savannah is one such place that embraces the local culture while sharing this unique adventure to all ages.


While there are several Outside Savannah activities to experience, there are two that have been dubbed the most popular in terms of adventure and fun.

Savannah Outback Excursion

Scenic and peaceful, this adventure is a Savannah favorite that begins and ends with a kayak paddle across the Savannah River and the Lowcountry. Guests are in for five hours of fun and sunshine, complete with explorations of salt marshlands, backwater creeks, and hidden islands. Guides will stop to show you loads of wildlife and historic sites.

Savannah Ultimate Day Excursion

The ultimate day trips revolve around YOU in either 5-hour or 7-hour increments. Generally, the day is boat-based, where guests (up to six people), can customize their experiences with tours to see Savannah ports, dolphins, other wildlife, sandbars, beaches, wildlife refuges, Hilton Head, Bluffton or Daufuskie, and Tybee Islands. You can choose to fish, hike, kayak, paddleboard, crab, and relax—plus, a picnic lunch is provided. Every experience is led by professional Coast Guard licensed guides to ensure your safety and fun.


With that in mind, here are a few positive reviews from past guests to both Outside Savannah and the main office of Outside Hilton Head.

★★★★★ “If you want a quick tour that also happens to be fun and very informative, this one is for you. The Port Tour is great for all kinds of travelers, as you stay on the smooth river—perfect for people with bad backs, like me. Our guide was great with explanations about the imports and exports of Savannah, as well as local legends and a few tall tales. So much that I had no idea about! Very enjoyable.” – Deb G. from Hilton Head, SC

★★★★★ “We had a blast on the early morning kayak tour, with 5 kids ranging from 5 to 13. Our guide was super patient, professional, and engaging. He was absolutely great with the kids! We appreciated it and will definitely return.” – M.B. from Charleston, SC
