Whether you're a family looking for an adventure on the water or a couple wanting a romantic sunset dinner, sailing is one of Hilton Head Island's favorite pastimes on the water. The Calibogue Sound and Broad Creek offer relatively sheltered, calm waters. If you know how to sail you can rent a sailboat or you can take sailing lessons. The breathtaking painted sunsets at dusk combined with mild evening weather, make evening sails popular.
