Good Dolphin Tour

The boat ride was smooth. The captain of the boat followed the packs and circled around them in an attempt to get them to follow the boat, and it works! It was awesome!

We went on a dolphin tour and our tour captain Randy was like a stand up comedian. Captain Derek drove and Captian Randy gave us the history of the waterways, marine life, birds, lighthouses in and around Tybee Island. It was a bit foggy, but we were able to see two dolphins jumping near our boat.

This was my first trip to see the ocean and be out on the ocean. My mother is handicapped and when we made the reservation they scheduled us on a accessible boat. Everyone was very attentive to her and made sure she got on easily and safety. We saw lots of dolphins including a momma and her baby calf. It... More

We had a great experience on this tour! Our first mate was Chris and he was informative and humorous! He kept us all entertained! We saw some dolphins, pelicans and even a bald eagle! It was nice to see the lighthouses and beaches and it`s always nice just being out on the water. I would definitely recommend this tour -... More

We took a sunset dolphin cruise the evening of 10/17/2015 and had a great time. We saw dolphins jump behind the boat. Chris was funny and gave great descriptions of what we were seeing. The captain had to call the Coast Guard for a stuck sailboat but the delay didn't damper the trip. I would definitely do this again on... More

We did see some dolphins and I liked the crew and the price, but it could have been a much more enjoyable experience if it was on a better boat. My main issue with the boat was that , the front of the boat was blocked off by the cabin, making it impossible to see in front and very difficult... More

divingderek, Owner at Captain Derek's Dolphin Adventure, responded to this review

The boat you were on is handicap accessible. It is very easy to get on/off and produces the best waves to get the dolphin surfing when they are in the mood. Our other boat has the open front where you can enjoy the breeze better, but is more difficult to board. While the boat isn't what I'd call a "yacht",... More

It was one of the best 90 minute cruises I ever took. The Captain took us right to the Dolphins And positioned us for the best sunset pictures. The First mate Chris Day was a lot of fun and was full of information. We had a great time and will go back when we are in the area.

This place is amazing. The ride was smooth, I actually saw dolphins, and our tour guide, Chris, was awesome. I saw barges, the Cockspur Lighthouse, and a cool fort. It was a great ride.
