Most dolphin I've ever seen at once. Very reasonable price. Feel free to bring your own snacks. Tricky to find in GPS. Road is right across from the Welcome to Tybee sign. Highly recommend for all ages.

We went on a four hour fishing trip. Five kids and three adults. All had an awesome time. First Mate - Matt was fantastic. So helpful with the kids and made for a fun time for all. Perfect spot - as soon as we dropped the line, pulled up a fish - Sea bass and Redfish. Super fun time.

We went on the 2:00 tour on Saturday and there were 14 other people on the tour. Adam was the first mate and very knowledgeable of dolphins, the area, and local history. The tour left promptly at 2:00 and after about a 15 minute trip out, we spent about 20 minutes in the middle of dolphins on both sides of... More

Capt dereks tour was great! We saw plenty of dolphins and our tour guide did a fantastic job of explaining all the differnt sites and some of the history around the waters of savannah. Very interesting - we had a varied group from infant and 2yo to teens, late twenties, and mid 50s - everyone enjoyed!

Any chance to get close to wild dolphins is exciting for me, and we saw plenty!! October 2013, sunset cruise... dolphin-o-rama!! And yes they were jumping in our boat wake, thrilling to see! Really fantastic experience, highlight of my vacation to Georgia, thank you to the the captain and the first mate for a good experience.

We had a great boat ride and saw tons of dolphins. We really liked our captain and first mate. This co was cheaper and dolphin guaranteed which is why we chose them. We also found out that their boats can go further out to sea allowing us to find more dolphins. My 2yo and 4yo had a great time as... More

We took the 2pm trip and loved every minute. The captain Josh and first mate Adam were both funny and very polite, they gave great information and made everyone's experience great. We saw many dolphins and took lots of pics and video.

One of the cheaper Dolphin tours. We did the sunset tour...and the view alone was worth the money. Didn't see as many dolphins as we had hoped, but the scenery and sunset was beautiful. Our mate, Adam, did a great job entertaining and pointing out the different sights on the way.

Loved it! My husband and I took the sunset cruise and it was absolutely amazing. The sunset was beautiful, the full harvest moon was huge, and we seen dolphins. A great trip! I had never been on the ocean in a boat and I loved feeling it rock back and forth in the water. We will go on another tour... More

We took the 2 PM trip like a lot of other reviewers, and like them saw a ton of dolphins. What they say is true, the dolphins come to their boat. I saw a couple tour operators on the water with us and it seemed their plan was "follow Captain Derek's boat". Not part of the tour, but we recovered... More
