My wife and I took our kids (7, 9 & 16) on a three hour trip with Capt. Rene on her very comfortable skiff. We heads thru the salt marsh and saw dolphin, fish, shrimp, turtles and interesting birds of all types and sizes. We even took a large hermit crab for a brief boat ride so the kids could play with him and take photos. We threw the cast net and caught finger mullet. The wife wanted to search for sand dollars so off we went thru the shallow waters to a pristine beach occupied by only shells and whole sand dollars. We found half a dozen whole sand dollars which was more exciting for my wife than myself. The kids found all sorts of other intact shells and our older son caught more mullet. The three hour time slot was perfect and will for sure charter her again for one of her other charters. She is a great captain and offers a very informative narration of everything you pass. The best part was when we found a dolphin chasing fish in about a foot of water and it came blasting past us towards the back of the boat so he could catch his fish. Awesome trip!!

Captain Rene was professional, knowledgeable, personable, and went out of her way to make sure we had a great time. We went shelling on Little Tybee and were entertained by first mate "Fiddler" who is an amazing "crabber". She helped my daughter locate shells and sand dollars. Rene took us to multiple spots that had the most amazing species of birds; she knew everything about them and made it a fun learning experience. And last but not least the dolphins! So many dolphins up close and personal; we will never take one of those commercial dolphin tours again. Ive toured the Gulf of Mexico and Pacific Ocean; this is one of the best tours I've ever been on. Thank you Rene(and Fiddler)!!

My aunt booked this for my family (18 people total) while we were vacationing in Tybee last week. It was hands down the MOST fun thing we did on the entire vacation. Dave and Rene were both knowledgeable and personable and went the extra mile to make sure we had a great experience. We saw dolphins, walked around Little Tybee, found many sand dollars and horseshoe crabs and enjoyed taking in the breathtaking scenery. Captain Dave even stopped to let us try some "sea pickles!" Our tour was from 5-8pm and it was perfect, enthusiastically recommend this tour if you are planning a visit to Tybee!!

We had such a pleasant afternoon on the boat with Rene touring the Tybee waterways, seeing lots of birds, dolphins and a shark! AND hunting for cool fossils!
