About Us

For over 40 years, the Lowcountry’s source for feel-good, grass-roots energy has been an outdoor outfitter known simply as Outside. From humble roots as a windsurfing school operating off of a card table in the back of the South Beach General Store, the business has grown to include five divisions, nine tour outposts, and four retail stores. 

The mission of Outside is to enrich lives by connecting people to exceptional places, products, and experiences. Our deep local knowledge allows us to design programs, adventures, tours, and clinics that give our customers the true feeling of the Lowcountry and Coastal Empire. Some of our diverse offerings include boating, towing sports, nature tours, beachcombing, kayak tours, stand-up paddle boarding, electric biking, fishing, and fully customized combinations designed around particular groups. Our tour outposts are located on Hilton Head Island, Daufuskie Island, Palmetto Bluff, Savannah Harbour, Beaufort, and our private Page Island on the Cooper River. 

The signature experiences Outside provides are made possible by the professional, knowledgeable, and personable guides, captains, naturalists, and historians who lead them. We are ready to show you our beautiful backyard. Come on aboard!
