We choose a Captain Derrick's over Captain Mike's based on reading trip advisor reviews, and we're not disappointed...we had an amazing time watching dolphins come up casually around the boat as the young tour guide told random yet amusing sea stories. As the boat picked up speed, the dolphins swam behind it and jumped and twisted in the waves as... More

Place is hard to find and a little run down but we did see dolphins. Of course we were following a shrimp boat. That was ok because the dolphins were beautiful and there was a lot of them.

It was a fun experience, however, the boat is not all its cracked up to be. The tour was great and the tour guide, Jess, was amazing! Very informative! Definitely saw tons of dolphins very close to the boat. Highly recommend, but make sure you don't have to use the restroom on the boat!!

We started our trip with a visit to Captain Derek and it was the best decision we could have made. We were excited to see tons of dolphins and thought it could not get better, but it did!

So impressed with this tour!! Great for all ages. From the first phone call to meeting the captain and first mate, staff was extremely friendly & helpful. We learned so much about the creatures, waters, and history of Savannah and Tybee Island. Not to mention saw SO MANY DOLPHINS!! Will definitely be visiting Captain Derek's again!

My family loved the tour. We took the last tour of the day at 7:30. They used two boats running side by side to entice the dolphins to play and play they did. They followed the boat wake jumping and showing off for us. I would highly recommend this tour to you and your family.

Had a fun time. Captain Josh and his first mate was very informative on our tour. Would recommend this dolphin tour. Had reservations for captain Mike's but as our family of 16 was walking down dock the boat was pulling away not a good thing to see.

Great experience. Excellent customer service. Went there after horrible experience with Captain Mike Dolphin tours. If you have an option go to Captain Dereks. Do not go to Captain Mikes.
