We rode on the Capt Dicks River Tour for an hour and a half cruise of the waterway in Beaufort SC. The boat Captain of The Prince of Tide was very knowledgeable and shared lots of information along the way. We saw a couple bottle nosed dolphin along the way.

We had the opportunity to take a river tour of Beaufort on the Prince of Tides boat with Captain Dick. While he was knowledgeable of the history of the river and the city I would rate the tour as average. I don't fault them for the few dolphins we saw he did seem to favor the left side of the... More

Saw a few dolphins - including a baby with her mother! I think some people expected to see dolphins like you would in an aquarium, but these are in the wild. The Capt was respectful of their space, which I liked. Learned a lot about the area and a little about the history of the area. All in all, a... More

What a treat to find such an economical and at times historical tidbits thrown in as an added treat during the Prince of Tides the Harbour Cruise. The still pristine waterways that Captain Laurence traveled must be due in part to nature's tides that keep the boat traffic at bay from getting too close to the Historic Homes. (Lucky Home... More

We booked the tour in hopes of seeing some dolphins, and though the sightings were sparse, mostly tails and a few fins, we understood as they aren't pets that can be controlled. The Captain was very informative and the information provided about some of the houses along the tour that have appeared in films was very interesting. Overall it was... More

We did the sunset cruise for a birthday present for my husband. I reserved our space with a quick email. I had to chage the dates 3 times due to husbands military obligations and they were very accommodating. Very informative tour; the mate he brought on board told some stories about his great grandparents starting back around the Civil War... More

Captain Lawrence was the Captain when we went on the tour. Ask a simple question and you get "I will tell you when we get back". My question was ..."will we be in the Cypress Wetlands area? The correct answer should have been ...No, that is in a different area and not on this tour. His answer.."I will tell you... More

Beautiful scenery, loads of dolphins and the bonus of the swing bridge in action, made for a wonderful tour. The tour was very peaceful and relaxing, as well as educational and would appeal to all age groups.

We took the Sunset Cruise in early April and enjoyed every minute of the ride. The scenery was beautiful, the homes and boats along the river were fun to see, and the Bottle Nose Dolphins put on a great show for us. The Captain gave a nice description of the natural history of the river and the various wildlife that... More

You really fall in love with Beaufort when you are out on that water! This tour was so packed full of information about the wildlife and sea life that make this beautiful costal town what it is. The whole family enjoyed this tour from start to finish!
