2 hour boat ride was just the right amount to time for us with 2 small children. Our guide, Shawn, was was in tune with what interested us and made it fun for the whole family.

We booked an impromptu dolphin cruise online and were thoroughly satisfied. Richard was laid back and a great captain/guide! Would definitely do again. Maybe evening cruise next time. Our 4 year old loved it and so did we!!

We booked the sunset tour. Our group had us, another group of three adult friends and a final group of four adult family members. Right off the bat the family members had trouble, two of them falling in right at the boat ramp. The rest of us had to float around waiting for them to get fished out and for... More

Omg!!! Everything that could go wrong on this tour, did. The guide got lost, kayaks flipped, several times, a couple of people gave up and had to wait along the marsh. This tour was a total disaster...(pause)...(pause again)...or was it? It was an amazing evening, the light was spectacular, it was really peaceful out on the water, no cell phones... More

Had an amazing time on the Dolphin Tour. I've never seen so many dolphins, let alone seeing them that close. The captain was very knowledgeable feeding is information along the way. This was for sure one of my favorite memories from our trip!

Our tour got a late start because some folks were running late. Could have been annoying but the guides let us decide how long we wait for the lost ones, and gave us a portion of our money back for the shortened trip. Was really nice of them to be flexible enough for those who were lost, and reimbursing us... More

My husband and I met Weatherly who was very informative and fun to talk to, she suggested we ask our guide about the Island of Lost Sunglasses, a popular spot to see dolphins. We went out on the boat at 6pm with Sean who was also very nice, knew a lot about the local wildlife. Initially we didn't see any... More

Me, my friend and a 5-year old went on a Flipper Finders tour with our guide Richard, and we LOVED it! It was for about two hours and we got to see tons of dolphins close to our boat. Our 5-year old said this was the best day of her life so we highly recommend it!

My family and I took the boat tour in May. Our guide was very nice, helpful and extremely knowledgeable about the area and wildlife. We saw more dolphins than we could even keep track of and completely enjoyed the experience. The only reason I didn't give an "excellent" score was because of the boat. We gave my youngest son the...

We went on a sunset cruise to Morris Island with Captain Richard. We had such a wonderful time! Richard is very knowledgeable about local history and wildlife. We were able to walk out to the lighthouse, getting spectacular pictures along the way.
