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.

Great sunset cruise with Maddy & Captain Gator! Saw 30+ dolphins on our visit with the beautiful sunset as the back drop. Highly recommend! Easy to book and were open to rescheduling when a last minute obstacle changed our plans!

Great dolphin tour! Maddy was super sweet and funny! Captain dangerous was an awesome captain and showed us lots of dolphins and even let the kids drive his boat! Awesome experience! Highly recommend the sunset tour, its only $3 more and highly worth it!

We did this kind of last minute, but Connor and the captain were amazing and made it so fun! We did get to see several dolphins, and Connor told us about some other fun things to do around the area. Amazing trip!

So glad we took this tour! The dolphins swam right next to the boat on several occasions and we loved watching them roll through the water and jump the waves! Saw babies to adult males. Connor was an entertaining host as was our captain. A...More

Pretty sure you can still see them but there is no swimming with them. It's a boat ride and they take you around we're they are. And they do guarantee your trip if you do not see any they will take you out on another trip
