Take Captain Derek's Dolphin cruise. This was our first dolphin cruise and it didn't disappoint. We saw lots of dolphins and the crew was great, very informative about the dolphins and funny to boot.

This was our 1st dolphin cruise and we we're not disappointed! Lots of dolphins to be seen. My grandson and I both enjoyed it. The 1st mate was very informative and pointed out local landmarks and also knew a lot of interesting things about dolphins. Entertaining and educational!

Captain Derek's Dolphin Tour was recommended to us by a native of Tybee Island. The tour lasted well over an hour and the guide pointed out various historic sights, plants, and animals native to the area. We saw tons of dolphins and they gave us ample time to take photos. At the end of the cruise we were allowed to... More

We took Captain Derek's sunset cruise and were not disappointed. We saw many dolphins and got great sunset photos with the lighthouse as a backdrop. The cruise was comfortable and the guide was knowledgeable

Great tour, great guide. Saw more than 50 dolphins, maybe more if different pods. Staff was friendly, and right on time. Bring sunscreen and some water has it gets hot fast when the boat slows.

The dolphin tour was the highlight of our trip!! Best money we spent on Tybee. The whole family enjoyed it so much. We have visited Tybee many times and taken several dolphin tours - Derek's is the best! Thank you for making it unforgettable.

We had the pleasure of taking Captain Derek's sunset Dolphin Cruise this past week. We have been on many over the years but this one surpassed all of them. With two boats full of spectators, the captains came along side each other, ramped up the speed with great teamwork effort, and got the dolphins surfing and jumping in the waves... More

I am sorry for the miscommunication regarding your boat assignment. We do have a handicapped accessible boat that is capable of taking passengers in wheelchairs. When you made your reservation, we were unaware that you had mobility limitations and would be needing that specific boat. If we had known, we would most certainly have told you when it was available... More

We literally saw hundreds of dolphins as we followed several pods that were behind the shrimp Boats. If you went without the boats, you may still see some but tye and time it right if you can! Good guide with lots of info and very friendly. Much better than taking a 2 hour tour from Savannah just to come to... More

We took both an afternoon and sunset cruise (on different days). The tour guide was interesting and we saw plenty of dolphins. They made sure both sides of the boat had ample opportunity to view the dolphins so you didn't have to run from side-to-side to see.
