My family was very disappointed in the Savannah cruise on the Spirit of Harbour Town. The boat was very dated, dirty, and in poor repair. It seems that it has been at least 10 years since any repairs or upkeep was performed. The floors and walls were dirty. The staff was informed that the bathrooms needed to be restocked and... More

All I can say is awesome! We attended the sunset dinner cruise on June 25th celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary. From the minute we boarded the ship we were treated to fantastic service, a fabulous meal and some of the friendliest people you will meet on the island. Had a great time on this cruise. Thanks for recognizing our anniversary... More

We went to Savannah & loved all the history, but it was HOT!!! My favorite was Paula Dean's lunch buffet! Now that is good eats!!! The boat ride was hot & a little long.

We were welcomed aboard the Dinner Cruise in Hilton Head, SC (Harbour Town) on 6/25/2015 and had a lovely young waitress by the name of Sarah Krakoff attending our table. She was delightful and courteous and explained that she was an intern in a college program from Bowling Green, Ohio. We were very impressed with her manners and service to... More

We had a great time on this day trip. This is the second time we had been on the boat tour and time has made it better. The boat captain was very knowledgeable and had lots to say and explain along the way.. We saw alligators and hundreds of dolphins, he even slowed the boat down so the dolphins could... More

Had an absolutely wonderful time during my time on the boat. Everything was excellent from food all the way to the scenery around us. Our waiter, Trevor, who was extremely knowledgeably about the area was an absolute delight to have, mad the experience that much better. My Mother In Law wouldn't stop eyeballing him (very uncomfortable) but he handled it... More

Staying at Hilton Head Island, we also wanted to visit Savannah, but didn't want to get in the car. Our cruise on the Spirit was the perfect alternative. With a beautiful day, our captain was good enough to take us one way in and another back to increase our viewing pleasure. We went out into the Atlantic near Tybee Island... More

Nice boat ride, crew was great, but price was a little high. I think the meal trip would have been better but early in the year there are fewer trips. We took it over to the island stayed 3 hours and came back. Ok but the island has its own $$$ issues and the cost of both together is way... More

Great fun night out. The food was very good, buffet style, could go back for seconds. The captain did a great job narrating the tour. We saw a lot of dolphins. Our server, RACHEL did a great job. Very friendly. The fireworks show was fantastic. I recommend sitting on the top deck under the canopy. Even though it was 90... More
