The dolphin cruise was great! The staff was great and friendly from the person at ticket sales to everyone on the boat! The only problem we had was other people crowding us when trying to see the dolphins :/ but the captain would stay in one spot long enough for everyone to get a good look, which I thought was...

Captain was grumpy from the start. We did see dolphins, but the viewing was interrupted by the Captain yelling at people to sit down over the loudspeaker. Had potential, but should have been much better. The other people working on the boat were very friendly. Sit on the bottom front of the boat! Inside bottom should be avoided at all... More

My husband and I recently visited Hilton Head for the first time! We booked the sunset dinner cruise and it exceeded our expectations! The dinner was delicious...the shrimp and grits were amazing!! The staff was super friendly and hospitable, the sunset was gorgeous and all around we had a great time! Would recommend to friends and family without hesitation!

We made reservations a few days in advance of the holiday. When the day finally came, it was so windy we thought the cruise might be cancelled. The Captain altered the route so that we were always in protected waters and we never felt a ripple. The crew was so nice and helpful. White linen and china....and a beautiful sunset!... More

If you want to see dolphins take one of Vagabond's cruises. They have regular dolphin cruises or a dinner boat cruise to take. The dolphin cruise is on the vessel Vagabond. This boat will take you around Dafuskie Island and give you some history behind it along with stopping and announcing when dolphins are noticed. You can also take a... More

Spent a delightful evening on this cruise. Had excellent seats on the outside deck to enjoy the delights of the harbor and the wonderful sunset. Food and drink excellent and service very efficient.

This was our second experience using Vagabond cruise line to get to Savannah. Our group of 4 all enjoyed the views along the in coastal waterway. Dolphins are plentiful, and traveling besides loaded freights are incredible (they are so huge)! Staff are very friendly, captain points out surroundings. Captain even gave us a close up view of the 2 tall... More

We took the cruise from Hilton Head (Harbourtown) to Savannah. Nice boat, friendly crew and smooth sailing. We had a great time in Savannah, and the trip back to Hilton Head was very relaxing. Worth it!
