What an amazing experience! Captain John was so cool and knowledgeable and he was great with our 4 year old. We got to see lots of dolphin and a bald eagle in her nest. Truly the best way to experience the Lowcountry coast.

Wife and I recently took this 2 hour cruise, specifically to view dolphins. And were we ever pleased with our choice. Waters were very calm and a clear day made for excellent water viewing. We saw many, many dolphins and multiple locations, so viewing the dolphins was not limited to just one area or location within the 2 hour cruise.... More

Great day on the water with Capt. John. Flats boat fishing trip for redfish and trout. John was a great guide as he was very informative and found and kept us on fish most of the trip.

We loved the tour with Travis. We saw dolphins and had a wonderful 2 hour tour. Travis showed us the oyster beds and explain how they are harvested and told of the different fish in the area. He gave a wonderful history of the island and who helped make Hilton Head what it is today.

Spent four fantastic hours with captain/guide John as we wound our way through the beautiful low country waterways for a custom trip with another couple. John is a delight!!! Friendly, extremely knowledgeable and eager to share his obvious love for his adopted home. He made us feel as though we were out on a friend's boat instead of on a... More

My friend and I ended up having a private tour with Tucker and had an amazing time! Tucker was very nice, knowledgeable and entertaining! He knew exactly where to go to look for the dolphins and we saw so many of them. At certain points, they surrounded our boat and Tucker took pictures of us with the dolphins swimming behind... More
