Excellent trip.

Went at 11am 27/08/15. Lots and lots of dolphins. Witty commentary by boat crew and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Well worth it.

We went on the 2 p.m. tour and before we even left the marina, there were dolphins surrounding our boat! We had dolphins around our boat every minute of our trip. We got a tons of great photos! Leigh Ann was a terrific guide and was very knowledgeable about the dolphins and the area! This was at the top of... More

Wow this is a great find for us on our vacation. Well marked on the road so easy to locate. Made reservations the morning of our trip. Saw Dolphins even before we got on the boat. There was lots of space to move around on the boat as there were only like 10 of us the time of our cruise... More

Captain Don and his first mate Buddy were very friendly and provided a very entertaining adventure on the water. We watched Dolphins play and jump the waves made by the boat. Buddy gave us a brief history lesson of the land marks in and around the water. I highly recommend the tour.

So amazing! Took the sunset tour and saw tons of dolphins and this is the only boat that can get them surfing behind the boat. We actually were able to see dolphins jumping behind the boat. I will take this tour every time I come to Tybee. The view was breahtaking.

I still can't believe I got out on that boat. Went with four of my friends wanting to see some dolphins. The experience as pretty good. We tried to go on the boat the day prior but when I called the young lady said the day was canceled due to a lot of wind. It was nice to know they... More

Went with my family of 7 adults and 1 4 year old. No problems booking, explained that I have two special needs individuals and was assured they would be fine. The bathroom was an added bonus for one of my guys. We boarded quickly, there was plenty of room, Captain Derek was super nice and Amanda was very informative for... More

First of all just wanted to say Buddy and Captain Ron was the center piece to everyone having a great time. From safety tips to fun facts and good jokes it was one of the best tours of our vacation. We were visiting from Milwaukee, Wisconsin and we will be back next year. By the way we hope that prime... More

Very popular adventure. The captain knew where the dolphins were located and how to have them jump in the water for our viewing pleasure. It was a sunset cruise and the views were awesome.
