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.

Had a wonderful time on our tour with Captain Gator and his First-mate Conner. They were very knowledgeable in the area. We saw a lot of dolphins and the sunset was beautiful. I would highly recommend the tour at Captain Derek’s.
