Short story: Great for all ages, beautiful sunset, lots of playful dolphins, great guides. This is one that I'll be going back again on our next vacation. Longer version: Our group of 3 adults and 2 kids went on Friday's Sunset tour - they ran 3 boats (where the other company only had 1, which looked absolutely packed) - we... More

Why did I go with this particular tour? All of the reviews seemed like I couldn't go wrong, and they were right. Right from the start I received great communication from the staff - a text to remind me of my tour with a phone # in case I got lost. My Google maps wanted me to get off the... More

My family and I visited yesterday for a sunset cruise. We had a great time taking in the stunning view of the island at sunset and made a new friend in the process! Our captain was great and our narrator was very good as well with a fun sense of humor and a lot of knowledge about the island. This... More

This was the highlight of our trip to Tybee Island. Captain Dave and Rebecca were awesome! The dolphins were so close to us jumping in the waves it was breath taking to see them so close. I highly recommend this for anyone visiting Tybee especially if you have children.

Had a great time on this sunset dolphin cruise. The boat wasn't overcrowded so there was plenty of room. The captain and his 1st mate were knowledgeable and entertaining. I would definitely do this tour again.

The sunset tour was amazing. Captain Gator and First Mate Curtis made the trip very interesting. We rode the Spear It vessel. My husband and I learned a lot of cool information about Tybee Island. We also learned a lot about dolphins as well. We got amazing pictures and videos. I highly recommend Captain Dereks Dolphin Tours! Well worth the... More

I thought my kids would enjoy seeing dolphins since we are landlubbers and get all starry eyed when we see a beaver in a local creek. This was great! We started off to the theme of Gilligan's Island and, as the captain said, "If that song don't get you in the sailin' mood, I don't know what will!" We got... More
