We went on a sunset dolphin tour last night with Captain Derek's. The trip was well worth the $18 we paid each! The captain and 1st mate were engaging and great guides! We saw lots of dolphins and getting to see them "surf" the wake from the boat was awesome. We also saw the lighthouses and learned more about the... More

We did the sunset tour for $20. It's the best $20 you can spend in Tybee Island! The boat ride was nice. The tour guide and captain was really nice too! This will always be at the top of my list of things to do in Tybee!!

Wow! For $15, you get almost 1.5 boat ride chasing dolphins and seeing local sites. Captain and mate were tops and we're a pleasure to be with. Only draw back was that my wife and I were the only non-girl scouts on this trip, so we were surrounded by about 20 screeching 10 year olds.

We took the 7pm sunset trip. It was phenomenal. That seems to be the best option. Our first mate was funny and engaging. The kids loved it too. We saw tons of dolphins and numerous other interesting landmarks. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

This was such a great experience. We have 3 kids, 9, 10 and 17. It's challenging to find something everyone enjoys. The whole family LOVED this! So many Dolphins! They were awesome about accommodating our daughter in a wheelchair.

Great tour, great experience with dolphins. The captain brought us to the dolphins and got them to follow the boat. https://youtu.be/4xBt6GrFD_o

We had such a great time on this tour! My daughters, ages 8 and 9, had an experience that they'll remember for a lifetime. The adults had a lot of fun too. Our guide and captain were both awesome. This very well may have been the highlight of our week in Tybee...and we had a lot of good times.
