The visit was to historic Savannagh. It offered the usual 3 hour span, not enough for visiting the sites, museum, and shopping. The boat trip was average, band taking pictures as one boarded the boat was typical Disney. Staff was very pleasant, however

This was well organized, the serving crew (College Students) were excellent. The fixed menu (buffet style) was excellent (a surprise) and they had a full bar. Boy was this worth every penny/cent (reasonable price). 6.30-8.30. The boat has seen better days and some of the windows were a little cloudy, but we chose the air conditioned lounge. There is a...

My husband and I had a wonderful time on this cruise. We were greeted by a delightful girl named Kathleen, who was extremely pleasant and friendly. We saw many dolphin sightings and the weather was beautiful. Kathleen was very attentive to needs of drinks and snacks. The captain was informative about the cruise. We would recommend this adventure to anyone... More

This was a very pleasant way to spend a couple of hours. The crew was very nice and the captain talked enough to give you some local information during the cruise but didn't talk non-stop and allowed you to enjoy your evening. Food was good, NOT fantastic but good and worth the money. I almost gave this 4 stars because... More

The entire trip was wonderful. Before getting on the ship, a lovely girl named Kathleen took our photo to commemorate the experience. She was also extremely attentive, bringing us all our drinks and snacks very promptly with such a pleasant attitude. The captain was knowledgable and we saw lots of dolphins! Overall, a great trip!

Recently vacationed in Hilton Head SC for the first time and when asking locals for things to do they suggested the Vagabond Cruise. We signed up for the dinner cruise and was glad we did. What a relaxing way to spend a couple hours watching the dolphins. Food was good, and our server VICTORIA, was exceptional.

We took the dinner cruise and sat indoors for this trip. The ship is in good shape and the service was excellent. Dinner was surprisingly good! After a salad with slightly sad lettuce, we were a bit concerned about the buffet to come. But the shrimp and grits was excellent and the brisket was tender and flavorful. Nice vegetables and...

We have been going down to HHI for over 20 years and finally decided to take the Sunset Dinner Cruise. We found the staff very friendly and the boat clean. Our server was Natalie and she was very informative and catered to our needs. She went above and beyond a waitress at a four star restaurant. We would highly recommend... More
