We went on the sunset cruise and it was a great experience! Not only was the scenery beautiful with the lighthouses and the sunset but we saw many dolphins! They were all around us and putting on quite a show for us behind the boat when the captain made waves. We even got to see a baby dolphin jumping right... More

This was an awesome adventure. We saw lots of dolphins. Would recommend for adults and children. The captain and crew were the best.

We went on the 2pm cruise with my sister and her grandson. It was amazing how they got the dolphins to play in the wake. The one guy asked if I wanted him to take a video of it for me. I'll always have a great memory of this because of the video he did for me. Grandson liked to... More

We went on the 2pm cruise with these guys and had an incredible experience! My wife chose them because they advertised the unique ability to get the dolphins to follow in their wake. They did not disappoint. We must have had 5 or 6 dolphins following us for several minutes, surfing behind the boat, coming almost close enough to touch.... More

We had a wonderful experience with this tour. The first mate was very personable and we greatly enjoyed our conversations with him. The tour itself was spectacular. We saw soooo many dolphins and when the captain made waves with the boat the dolphins would catch up with us and jump the waves. The whole experience was quite enjoyable. Thanks guys!

The dolphins where only the cherry on top of the cupcake. They liked to play in the wake of the boat. The sunset was gorgeous. This put you at a different perspective of tybee. They took you up close to the cockspur lighthouse. The tybee lighthouse had its light on. If you are a photographer this is a good way.... More

We we a little skeptical about trying another promised Dolphin adventure after what happened in PCB. This was a great experience and great cruise. Be sure to book your cruise for the 7:00pm trip. There was nothing like experiencing the beautiful sunset behind the light house while watching dolphins!!!! You will for sure see Dolphins. We enjoyed this trip so... More

Not disappointed, despite a slow start with a few "national geographic" moments and lots of sighting relatively close and time to talk. The real show came as we sped homeward, with 4-6 dolphins riding the stern wave for what seemed an age. A great way to spend an hour, it’s a shame we missed the lemon shark when we returned!... More

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 lot of fun but the narrator either needs to talk louder or get better sound system. All in all... More
