Saw lots of dolphins, even when it was super cold!

Lots of room in boat. Blankets and coats were available to guests.

Nice, friendly crew.

“Savannah sites not often seen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Good Times was exactly what we had ! From the up-beat, funny & knowledgeable staff to the sights we saw, the whole experience was Fun ! Was very interesting seeing Savannah from a view we had not yet experienced. If you want to see dolphins this is the cruise for you. We saw numerous dolpins right next to the boat. Our 7 year old was even given a brief chance to steer the boat along the river. Huge container ships were also a neat site being so up close to them. Will deffinately book again next summer.

“good times charters”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

It was an enjoyable eperience. I think a beneficial addition would be some of the history of the area, eg plantations that fronted the river on Hutchinson Island.

“Relaxing and Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

After taking in most of Savannah via walking tours, this was a nice way to sit and see Savannah from the river. Our group was around 30 and it was not crowded at all. The crew was very informative and knowledgable. Due to the size of the group, you got to interact with visitors from all over the USA. Everybody was taking pictures for each other! You will get really close to the large container ships and they are pretty impressive. They said we would see dolphins and we did! The kids went wild (as well as some of the adults) as soon as the dolphins were sighted. The captain maneuvered the boat such that we were as close as 15ft from the dolphins. I recommend this tour for anyone that just wants to take a "breather" and enjoy an afternoon on the river. I especially recommend this tour for families with children.

“Friendly, Fun, Personal Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

My husband, our 24 year-old son and I went on this attraction, which is new to Savannah. The boat was comfortable, with plenty of visibility from any of the seats. They handed out bottled water to any who wished for it and made sure we were comfortable.

The crew members were amiable and enthusiastic, while the principle tour guide kept us all amused or intrigued with tidbits about Savannah's history, pirates, sailing and natural history.

Lewis (I honestly don't know if I remember his name correctly) made a point of spending quality, personal time with each of the groups or couples, engaging them in conversation and answering any questions about their personal area of interest.

And yes! We saw dolphins-many of them-including a mother and her young one. Although it cannot be scripted-and I know that a repeat cannot be quarantined-a dolphin came and swam alongside the boat, turning and twisting for us to take video...or at least that is how it seemed:)

We did give the crew a tip, but it was not blatantly solicited as it is on many tourist attractions in every part of the world we have visited.

This is a relaxing, rewarding, two thumbs up activity
