I will say I was slightly hesitant about going on this tour because I have been on dolphin tours before and have been very disappointed. This tour was completely opposite! It was easy to get to the boat where you load and the people are super nice who run the tour! We saw so many dolphins and babies too! It... More

If you are going to be in the Tybee Island, Savannah area this a MUST DO!!! When we booked this activity for our vacation I thought we would take a nice boat ride out in the ocean maybe see a few dolphins and get a good view of the water and island. I could have never been so wrong in... More

We did the sunset cruise, and it is well worth the money! He had the dolphins jumping for us! Also caught some beautiful shots of the sky and lighthouse. Really awesome and informed staff!

We took the sunset dolphin cruise and it didn't disappoint! We saw lots of dolphins, a gorgeous sunset and enjoyed tasty adult beverages (that we brought)! The captain and first mate Leigh were very informative and fun! Not only did you see amazing views, but we learned a little about Tybee which was nice. You will see dolphins, some close... More

This company has two boats so that the boats aren't so crowded and you can see better. We went on the Reelem In boat. The PA system was down so we couldn't hear the tour guide. Got to see lots of Dolphins, a freight boat up close, and the old lighthouse. We went on the sunset tour and got a... More

It's a dolphin tour...how can it be bad? I mean, you SEE dolphins where they belong...not in a tank or confinement, but out in the wild, living their lives. We saw several pods swimming around together, mostly in search of food. There were a lot of birds and small fish in the area, so the captain knew exactly where to... More

Loved the tour. Ashley and Captain Neil were awesome. Would love to go back next year and be on the evening cruise. Well worth it.

I chose Captain Derek over the other guy based on TripAdvisor reviews and I am so glad we did! Captain Jack and his first mate Ashley were fun, knowledgeable, and made it fun for everyone. Plus it's affordable. We saw a ton of dolphins and everyone enjoyed the ride (it was my husband and I, 2 families with little ones,... More
