This cruise was much better than I expected. Everyone gets a table with a view. Because this was a Valentine's Day special; every passenger was greeted with a glass of champagne. After the evening, each woman was presented with a long stemmed rose; very nice touch! The food was much much better than I hoped. Dinner started with a salad... More

My husband booked us for the Valentines Dinner Cruise, it was amazing! The food was excellent and we couldn't have asked for a better waiter than Ben, he was very attentive and polite. He didn't mind listening to any of our boring stories, thanks Ben for everything! We will definitely come back again.

You are guaranteed to see dolphins on this one and a half hour cruise from Harbor Town on Sea Pines, Hilton Head Islands. They deliver. We saw at least 12 dolphins on the large boat. In our party were 3 adults and a 4 year old and almost 2 year old. The Boys had plenty of room to look around... More

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

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
