Yacht Rental Tip #3: Best Time to Cruise

Unlike other vacation destinations, Hilton Head is a great place to be for many months throughout the year.

Certainly, a spring cruise in Hilton Head should be at the top of your vacation list! The weather is great and the island begins to buzz with visitors.

Starting in April, warmer weather accompanied by low humidity provides beautiful, sun-soaked days and comfortably cool nights.

Before spring shifts into summer, Hilton Head Island becomes the host for many more people. With that in mind, May and June are wonderful months to explore and book yacht rentals.

In Hilton Head, water adventures and yacht rentals hit peak season in the summer.

Water temperatures average 70-80 degrees, making July and August perfect for enjoying watersports and activities aboard M/Y Top Shelf.

Guests can ride jet skis, paddleboards, go water tubing and kayaking and of course swim, wakeboard and more!

Hilton Head stays warm through September and early October. Fall in Lowcountry is famously gorgeous, and creates an ideal backdrop for cool evenings on sunset dinner cruises.
