Hilton Head Watersports are a Live Oac specialty, with pristine backcountry waters just perfect for Tubing, Waterskiing, Wakeboarding and Kneeboarding.

You can mix and match water sports activities all on the same trip, so there is something fun for everyone.

Watersports can be the whole focus of your excursion or just part of a customized adventure with Live Oac. One of our most popular trips is our signature DolphinTubing™ Combo which includes plenty of tubing time and an opportunity to see dolphins.

First time skiing or boarding? No worries, there's no experience necessary! Our watersports boat charter captains are talented instructors who will guide you through the learning process. We've taught literally thousands of people how to have fun on skis, boards, and tubes.

Experienced water ski and wakeboard enthusiasts will be just as comfortable. Live Oac captains are boarders and skiers who are just as picky as you might be when it comes to choosing the right water and giving you the best ride possible.

Get More Time On The Water!

A highlight of Watersports with Live Oac is our prime location. We are 10-15 minutes from superb ski & wakeboard locations in the quiet creeks of Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge.

Our proximity to this area means you'll spend more time Skiing, Boarding, and Tubing and less time just "getting there and back."

The tree-lined creeks mean you'll have the best opportunity for calm water comfortable skiing. The trees provide excellent protection from Lowcountry winds and waves, so the water is perfect for all levels of watersports.

Due to the out of the way nature of this special spot, you will experience significantly less boat traffic than the busier locations on Hilton Head, like Broad Creek or Harbour Town and Calibogue Sound.

Compare to departure locations on Broad Creek (Shelter Cove Marina or Palmetto Bay Marina), South Beach Marina or Harbour Town, and you'll see why Live Oac is the number one choice for towable watersports in the Lowcountry! Why spend half your trip just "getting there and back" when you could be having fun water skiing, wakeboarding, or tubing?
