This tour was awesome! These two know what they are doing. Got to see and learn so much. If you have any questions, they have answers. The dolphins just follow the shrimp boats to the docks. I was amazed how close they were. My first time in a kayak. Def need more practice doing that.

On Friday, August 26, the international students of the English Language Institute at Savannah State University spent the afternoon kayaking on north Tybee Island. It was a very good experience for all of them because most of them had never kayaked before. Being so close to the water was a new experience for many of the students. They saw dolphins,... More

My daughter, grandson, and I took the guided kayak tour. Daughter and grandson took one double, and I opted to ride with the guide because I wasn't sure I could paddle the whole time. Shawn was gracious about having company in his kayak, and turns out, I did just fine. But I got the best tour.....as the others either raced... More

We had 4 adults 6 kids.... Rented 2 paddle boards and 1 kayak. They suggested to go to Beyer Beach - great area for kids and great beach! We saw Dolphins and kids had a BLAST!!! The owners were so awesome and informative. They were very friendly to help us newcomers find a great place to take the kids!

What a great place to rent kayaks and paddle boards. Shawn was very helpful, we had never been on paddle board's before and he was very helpful. If you have a chance do not miss this awesome adventure, dolphins were swimming near us, so beautiful.

We went on a guided kayak tour out to see Cockspur lighthouse. We learned a lot and even got to go up on the little island for pictures of the lighthouse. During our time in the water Dolphins were swimming and playing around us (at times less than 10 feet away)! We also saw a sea turtle. I highly recommend... More
