Glad my family decided to go with the sunset dinner cruise instead of the dolphin cruise! The food was just amazing and the cruise was fairly priced for all that you receive. From the moment we stepped on the boat we felt like we were the most important guests there. Everyone was constantly smiling and seemed like they enjoyed their... More

We scheduled an afternoon cruise and ended up with an evening cruise on the Stars and Stripes. The weather prevented us from going in the afternoon so they switched us to the evening cruise at the same price. We had a great time with lots of dolphins swimming aloing the side of our boat. It was a pleasent evening as... More

We had a wonderful day with Captain Phil yesterday. He was so informative and the trip to Savanna was so much fun. Lots to see including dolphins and historical sights. We had just enough time in Savanna to have a wonderful lunch at Vic's and do a little shopping. He took us back on the ocean side so more to... More

What a great way to see the intercoastal waterway, and travel to Savannah for the day. Captain Phil provided insightful narrative that explained many of the sights we saw on our journey. I highly recommend this outing.

The Vagabond Cruise Dolphin Tour is a beautiful way to see the island from the water and spend 90 minutes in a perfect coastline. My family enjoyed this trip so much! I highly recommend it.

My 5 year olds one request all week? We have to see dolphins. We almost didn't book with Vagabond, almost booked somewhere cheaper since we had a lot of people with us. We decided after doing lighthouse tour, to go ahead and book. So glad we did. We went out at 7pm Sat evening after a terrible storm. The storm... More

We loved the cruise to Savannah. The crew was fantastic. Captain Phil was great with my 10 year old daughter, answering all of her curiosity questions. We saw lots of dolphins as an added bonus. It was a very pleasant way to spend our day.

$20 per person but 1.5 hours is too long for kids to be on a boat when it is 90 degrees. Cute show, fun boat but cut the length of the ride/ show Boat condition- age was fine. Gregg Russell is good too - he is aging as we all are but he makes light of it :)

The cruise and the crew were exceptional! We took the historic Savannah cruise and it was the best 90 min cruise. We learned so much about the area and seeing all the dolphins on top of that was a major bonus! We'll definitely be doing this again!

Excellent evening on the dinner cruise from the greeting at boarding through the docking. Staff is attentive, friendly and personable. Food is outstanding, as well as the music. The narrative throughout the dinner cruise is an added bonus, we enjoyed seeing so many dolphins and learning about the area. We had a wonderful time and so glad that our visit... More
