“Wonderful experience, perfect amount of time and information.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2011

Young children, grandparents, and couples were on our tour. We did make a reservation, and they leave on time. Do not judge the experience by the rude person who answered the phone. She was very short when I referred to the information that was posted on the website. This created a low expectation. I was happy the captain and the tour guide were kind and paid attention to their customers request, questions and interest. The perfect mix of house information, water life including several dolphin, and history. I highly recommend, even if you are not fond of "tours". Water available for purchase on the boat.
I would recommend this tour to friends.

“Gorgeous views & knowledgable guides”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2010

Captain Dick's River Tours in the beautiful coastal town of Beaufort, SC is a must. Capt. Dick and first mate Linda give a tour that makes you wish it could last all day. Not only do you cruise the beautful Beaufort River on the "Prince of Tides" but see many of the historical homes by water. Capt. Dick and Linda are very knowlegable of the history of Beaufort and also the eco system of the river and surrounding marsh. Along the way you are very likely to see dolphins, egrets and other wildlife on the river.
This river tour is a wonderful way to spend the afternoon while visiting Beaufort.

“A Nice Afternoon on the Water”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2010

We recently took this water tour of the Beaufort area. It was a nice, informative1-1/2 hr tour. Capt. Dick stopped several times for us to enjoy watching the bottlenose dolphin. I've seen Beaufort many times from the shore, but it was nice to see it from a different view. I highly recommend this tour.

“A pleasant and easy way to see Beaufort by boat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2010

Beaufort itself is surrounded by water, so therefore it is only natural to view it by boat. Captain Dick and his wife (the first mate) make an excellent team aboard the Prince of Tides, which truthfully could be a little more updated and comfortable than the pontoon that it is. However, the actual tour itself is great. The opportunities to see some of the mansions from the boat in addition to dolphin spotting and learning about marshes are a great way to spend an hour or so with your friends and family. It's a nice way to spend an afternoon in town, and the you embark and disembark right at the downtown marina adjacent to the waterfront park and all the action.
