You want to be seated upstairs for the best views. Make sure you bring a jacket as it can get cool sitting outside in the evening. However if you have trouble doing steps and carrying a plate of food reserve a table on the bottom. The food was good but nothing special. The crew and servers were excellent! The views... More

We booked online for this cruise and printed off e-tickets. The website clearly stated that we had to exchange these tickets for boarding passes when we got to the dock. When we did we had to wait in line for 40 minutes only to be told when we eventually got to the front of the queue that we could have... More

We were on the Spirit of Harbour Town on September 4th for the dinner cruise and it was fantastic! The food was delicious, the weather was beautiful, saw a rainbow, some dolphins and a gorgeous sunset all in one trip. The crew at Vagabond is awesome, our server Brittany was the best! So friendly and efficient. Those college interns work... More

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 girlfriend and I went on the boat ride to Savannah for the day. Christian in the ticket box was great and very helpful. We were then greeted by Cpt Dave on the boat. The trip down the Intracoastal was beautiful. First Mate Charlie was outstanding behind the bar. The weather was perfect in Savannah and we had plenty of... More

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.
