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.

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.
