Great job by Capt. Jamie and Amy! Very informative and fun cruise despite some rock and rolling water. Really appreciate the time they take to tell you about what you are seeing, with plenty of humor to keep the young ones engaged. Nice that they strive to run a business that is so environmentally responsible also, following the guidelines to keep the dolphins safe, getting offsets so they are carbon neutral, and informing you about the harm they see firsthand from plastic pollution in the ocean. Couldn’t be happier with our trip!

My friends and I went on the dolphin watch cruise with Blue Wave Adventures out of the Wicked Tuna Marina in Murrells Inlet. I highly recommend this tour. Captain Mark was very knowledgeable and extremely entertaining!! And we saw so many dolphins!! It’s a great day on the water for friends, couples and families. Then when you return from your trip, you can eat at one of the restaurants on the Marshwalk. If you are fair skinned - wear a hat and sunscreen because there is no cover to the boat. Enjoy!!

Nice boat ride on a choppy day. Always fun to be out on the ocean. We saw jellyfish and enough pelicans that they should call it the Pelican Cruise...but no dolphins on this day. The overall experience was great - I dropped a star because of the environmental sermon we got while on the cruise. I love the ocean and want it to be healthy but the environmental propaganda was a little over the top. But if you are looking for a good boat ride and the chance to see some wildlife then this is definitely worth the $31.
