Thanks to Captain Todd for making our trip an awesome one. He was great with our six-year-old too, even offering her an extra sweatshirt when she got cold. He was very knowledgable about the wildlife, the tides, and in general a wonderful person to be around for our cruise. We got to see dolphins, eagles, and other birds too. We had a blast! When we come back, we are definitely calling Commander Zodiac for another cruise!

This 2-hour tour was good. Going out in a small craft allowed our guide to maneuver close to dolphins swimming close by. Our guide (Scott) gave a good narrative of the waterway and surroundings. We all had fun.

We all had a wonderful time on the dolphin cruise with Scott from Commander Zodiac. We saw several dolphins and I took many fantastic photos during the adventure. Scott was very knowledgeable of the area, it's history and especially where to find the beautiful dolphins!

Captain Scott gave us a day to remember. We saw so many starfish on the vanishing sandbar. And the dolphins really put on a show for us. We most enjoyed learning so much more about the area, Daufuskie, and the dolphins. We topped it off with his recommendation of lunch at the pub where we had great drinks and food. Fantastic Day!

Captain Graham was very knowledgeable and took us up close to areas that dolphins were feeding and playing. This unique way to see Hilton Head and the surrounding islands was enjoyed by everyone.
