I know these are wild animals and they are not contained but when we went out this tour it was rainy and choppy and we did not see 1 dolphin. I had a VERY disappointed child. As a mom it's hard to pay that kind of money to disappoint your child. They did offer that we could go again for... More

Went went on the 10:00 tour. We were lucky to catch up to the dolphins right away and watched them frolic for about 45 min. No problem for people unsteady on their feet like my friends but it was a super calm day. Only a few seats get sun block from canvas overhead. The captain was great. Very informative. I... More

We did not see any dolphins and went at 10 am. But a storm is coming so possibly the reason. The Captain was friendly and fun. Found the younger gal helper to be a bit impatient for older people. Expect to walk a ways to the boat and be careful getting on the ramp. Boat is clean and we had... More

The captain and crew members were passionate about respect for the wild life and environment. The boat was perfect size, about 40 passenger, with great views from every seat. It was a calm relaxing and fun ride. We were lucky to see a mother and baby dolphin. I highly recommend this adventure.

Wonderful trip. So much information give. Thanks to the crew for encouraging us to be economic friendly. Things we need to understand to prevent and stop destroying our planet. Beautiful ride, spectacular views and we saw dolphins. Easy check in and lots of parking. Will take kids and grandkids to enjoy next time.

We stayed in Murrell's Inlet for a week and I think this was the highlight of our trip. We had a group of 8 ppl ages 3 to 63. Everyone enjoyed this adventure! We took the 8 a.m. 90 minute trip. We saw jellyfish, a turtle, and so many dolphins! There is no guarantee that you will see anything but... More

Absolutely one of the best things to do in Myrtle Beach! Captain Mark was funny and informative! The boat ride was so fun and seeing the beautiful dolphins made the trip amazing! I'm also thankful we heard the speech we heard coming back! I will definitely do my part to help our oceans! Would definitely go on this tour again!!

Not for the sea sick or weak stomached. We saw lots of dolphins and had a blast on the boat ride. The sea was a little rough and we rode those waves like a roller coaster!! Everybody say weeee! Honestly I don't think anyone would have cared if we didn't get see the dolphins because the boat ride was fun.... More

Took the two hour dolphin watch / tour. Didn't see any but still worth the trip - would do it again. Suggest going early before it's blazing hot!
