Welcome aboard Tybee Island's fastest, most enjoyable boat cruise. We have over 700h.p. to get the action going. Dolphin love to play alongside our boat. Enjoy such sights as Ft. Pulaski, Cockspur and Tybee lighthouses, barrier islands and the Brown Pelican. Dolphin Guaranteed. Large restroom aboard. Coast Guard approved for up to 90 passengers on both boats.

We had a beautiful July 4th dolphin sunset cruise. My fiancé was kind enough to arrange it and we enjoyed ourselves. Saw lots of dolphins and a beautiful sunset. The kids had a great time.

Captain Derek's tour was so much fun! We got to see the dolphins playing. My three kids loved it. The first mate-Connor provided great entertainment on board as well. He dressed as a pirate for a few minutes.

I'm sorry, there is no whale watching. Trip Advisor places both activities into one category. However we do offer Tybee Islands number one dolphin tour.

We never saw or heard anything about whales. If you think that is a possibility I would call the business - they are great about answering all your questions.
