We wanted to just "get pot on a boat" so we booked a trip with Captain Derek. We had a great time and saw quite a view dolphins. These folks are very knowledgeable and safety minded. Highly recommended for people of all ages.

Enjoyed our first Dolphin Adventure through Captain Derek's Dolphin Adventures. We spotted your location as we drove into Tybee. We were a last minute booking. I am thankful that they could still accommodate us. Enjoyed being out on the water. It was a nice end to our day. Tybee was packed that day with spring breakers and I had turned... More

Mom and I went on the sunset dolphin tour and it was amazing!!! We saw several pods of dolphins, their entertainment was a good combination of informative and cheesy and their music choices were great too! The sunset was jaw dropping and Capt Mike maneuvered the boat so that we could get beautiful pictures of it, the fort, the lighthouse... More

Chris was the instruction manual and comedian. Captain Gator is a treat as well. Wonderful beach ocean music and the boat was comfortable. I sat up front on the starboard side on the bow. You will get wet. But its the best view and comfortable. Before we even got out to sea we started seeing dolphins. Its great people and... More

My group of friends went to Savannah for spring break this week. Garrett was our "guide" and he was great. Very talkative and informative. This is definitely the highlight of our trip. We saw so many dolphins and my friends actually screamed when some of them jumped out of the water. This tour was amazing! I would do it again

We had a wonderful time on the sunset tour! Captain Gator and Chris were informative and entertaining. The sunset was beyond words and we saw several dolphins. I would come back every day if I lived closer. 💙🐬🌅

My sister and I took a sunset tour with Captain Derek's last weekend. I enjoyed everything about it. The boat was nice, the crew was great and very knowledgeable and they made sure we all got to see everything all around the boat. The sunset tour is beautiful and I would definitely recommend them to anyone visiting Tybee Island.

We traveled to Savannah with our girl scout troop. One of the things we did was go on this dolphin tour. It was a highlight of our trip. We got to see dolphins. Lots and lots of dolphins. Seeing dolphins racing behind the boat was really awesome. We had a blast! And the sunset was an added bonus.

Booked the sunset tour. Loved the whole experience! The staff were nice and knew their stuff. Captain took extra precaution to avoid giant waves from large freighter. We appreciated that! Definitely a must do tour while visiting Tybee and Savannah!
