We went on a boat tour to Palmetto Bluffs with Captain Blair. The boat was pristine and Captain Blair was professional and extremely knowledgeable. We had an incredible time and saw dolphins. I highly recommend this company and Captain Blair. We will be going back when the weather is warmer and we can try some fishing.

Took a 2 hour boat tour with John as captain on a small motor boat. It was a beautiful winter day, sunny and 70. There were only 2 couples. John provided a memorable tour that was informative about the wildlife and ecosystem. We saw migratory birds and dolphins. John brought a nice blend of humor and knowledge, including his personal...

Captain Scott took my family and I on a 2 hour wildlife adventure throughout the surrounding waterways of Hilton Head Island. We saw dozens of dolphins and various waterfowl. As we discovered new areas, the captain provided fun facts and history of the area. I have visited Hilton Head Island many times over the past 10 years, but it was... More

Captain Scott was great and very informative. We were very fortunate to be the only two people on the tour. We saw dolphins right after leaving the dock and throughout the whole tour. Highly recommend!!

Had an EXCELLENT trip with John!Saw many dolphins. Including two times dolphins strand feeding. That was so cool. Also saw a lot of wildlife and heard about how tides, sea life, plants and birds work together. Highly recommend Live Oac. Hope to come back soon.

John was our captain and guide and was excellent. He had a wonderful personality and seemingly endless knowledge about the areas and wildlife that we were seeing. He told us much about the history and culture of the area. He also discussed hurricane damage in the area and described how they got through it. We did see many dolphin on... More

I highly recommend doing a dolphin trip with this company. Captain Scott piloted our boat and was the perfect mix of being knowledgable, friendly, helpful, fun while the whole time made us feel safe and confident in his boating skills. We were lucky as we saw TONS of dolphins frolicking and playing. We also saw a couple of bald eagles... More

I can't possibly say enough nice things about Captain John and how great of an experience my family had with him. From the moment he met us on the dock I knew we hit the jackpot. My wife and two young daughters (8 and 6) along with my wife's cousin loved our entire trip. From seeing lots of dolphins, to... More

I took the Sunset Dolphin Tour with my friend. It was really cool. It's a little bit rainy that day but did not impact anything. The view is great especially during sunset. We saw two dolphins!
