Hilton Head day trips have long revolved around the gorgeous natural scenery  – whether visiting for some freshly caught oysters, a round of award-winning golf, or to soak up the sun on America’s #1 Island, a day trip in Hilton Head can include any number of memorable activities.

Five-star yachting might not be the first thing that comes to mind when planning a Hilton Head day trip but did you know Top Shelf Motor Yacht has been offering this highly unique, completely custom amenity to Lowcountry dwellers and visitors alike since 2021?

If you’re looking for luxurious things to do in Hilton Head, look no further than Top Shelf Lifestyles. 

For example, your Hilton Head day trip can still include freshly caught oysters (our full-time Executive Chef will prepare any menu you desire), and you can still knock some balls off the tee (from the top of our yacht, into the calm waters of the Calibogue Sound). 

Plus, you’ll definitely soak up some sun while aboard our 80’ motor yacht! Experience what makes Hilton Head Island America’s #1 Island from the comfort of our sky lounge as you take in her sights, sounds and wildlife in comfort.

Complete the day with exhilarating water sports if you so choose. Then, freshen up for dinner in our spacious cabins with full bathrooms, and settle in for a gourmet dinner and sunset cruise you will never, ever forget.


Explore the magic of a day spent on Hilton Head Island’s pristine waters:

Morning Bliss: Board Top Shelf Motor Yacht as early as you like (our concierge will coordinate every detail to your liking). We typically board in Shelter Cove Marina, but we can pick up and drop off guests anywhere from Charleston to Savannah.

We’ll welcome you with champagne and a tour as Captain Edin launches the magnificent vessel onto course.

Adventure Beckons: After welcome drinks and canapes, the day’s adventures await. Hilton Head Island offers a plethora of water activities, from snorkeling or paddleboarding, to tow sports and beyond. Try your hand at the exhilarating motorized SeaBob and swim with the dolphins!

Hidden Gems, Secluded Beaches and Disappearing Islands: Our experienced crew knows all the best spots. Want to see the disappearing island or cruise past HHI’s iconic Lighthouse? No matter your idea of fun, we will chart a course that exceeds your expectations. 

Lunch with a View: After a morning of exploration, it’s time for a gourmet lunch in the air conditioning or in the warmth of the shaded aft deck dining table. Our expert chef can please even the most discerning of palates. As you dine, notice the backdrop is nothing short of breathtaking – endless sea and sky stretching to the horizon.

Relaxation and Serenity: The afternoon is a time for relaxation or more adventure! Whether you choose to sunbathe on the deck, indulge in a spa treatment, or curl up with a book in the shade, the yacht is your sanctuary. Your only task is to savor the tranquility of the moment unless the adventure of water sports beckons once again. Allow our full-time crew to cater to you.

Spectacular Sunsets:  Would you like to freshen up before dinner? Utilize one of the yacht’s four staterooms to get ready for an elegant dinner overlooking the sunset. 

As evening approaches, the highlight of the day awaits – the sunset. The sky transforms into a canvas of vibrant colors as the sun dips below the horizon. It’s a moment of pure magic, and Top Shelf Motor Yacht provides the perfect vantage point to witness nature’s masterpiece.

Evening Elegance: As the stars make their appearance, the yacht’s ambiance shifts to one of elegance and sophistication. Dress up for a five-star meal under what can only be described as a blanket of stars. HHI’s low light density means the stars are on full display and trust us when we say this is a breathtaking sight. Indulge in pure decadence with us, and toast to the day’s adventures and the beauty of the sea surrounding you.
