This was our only boat ride of the trip here. Its amazing to see HHI from the water. From the road it seems like a desolate forest but once you get on the water you get awesome views of the marshlands and the millions dollar homes. The boat itself is nice and well cared for. Dinner was pretty good especially... More

Very nice boat ride to Savannah Georgia. Definitly worth the $60 a person with $5 coupon for staying in Seapines. Captain Phil told us about history and pointed out things along the cruise. Him and his 2 crew members were very knowledgeable and extremely nice. We saw dolphins, jellyfish, and pelicans. We took two different routes to change the scenery.... More

You have to pay a 6.00 entry to. It is a nice dining and shopping area. Really nice to walk around and see the... More

The food was pretty good and the service was excellent. I can't say much about the cruise as we never got out of sight of the Harbourtown lighthouse. Seems the cruise should have taken us somewhere other than just across / around the sound.

When we have out of town guests we always book a dolphin tour. The one we took two weeks ago was amazing. We even saw a baby dolphin that was less than a week old. The crew is always helpful and the information provided during the tour is great. We always have an amazing time and our visitors say its... More
