“Magical Nature Trip With The Best Guides!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014 via mobile

I give Sundial Charters my 100 percent recommendation for anyone who is interested in what truly makes the coast special. I have been on at least six trips with them, and the guides are super knowledgeable, friendly, and safety conscious. With them, I've been able to see a great variety of bird life, dolphins, fossils, lighthouses, deserted beaches great for shelling, and the stunning beauty of the marshes and barrier islands, as well as experience some excellent sport fishing. Whether you are an adult with a lot experience with the coast and nature, or a child just starting to learn about ecology, the guides' knowledge of the area's wildlife, history, and its natural processes will fascinate you. You will have a trip you won't forget.

“Best way to experience the Low Country”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2014

We had the true pleasure to experience this beautiful world around Tybee Island because of Sundial Charters, Rene and Dave's knowledge and passion for this area really made it special. With this personal, private touch, we were able to see things and go places that are unknown to everyone else. Beautiful, Peaceful, Friendly. You truly come back having made new friends. We can't wait to return and share another day or two with them.

“A Vacation Highlight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2014

My husband, 10yo daughter and I enjoyed a lovely 3 hour Little Tybee Unplugged tour with Captain Rene and Fiddler. Captain Rene was a warm, friendly, knowledgeable and thoughtful guide. She steered us through the beautiful salt marshes where we saw dolphins and many birds (including a young bald eagle). The beach-combing was especially fun for us and we collected numerous shells, a few sand dollars and even the shell of a small sea urchin. We learned a lot about the local marine life and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Definitely a high-light of our vacation and we highly recommend booking through Sundial. It is clear we were with a guide who wanted to share knowledge and teach others about the Island and wildlife. You won't be disappointed.

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I spent the afternoon with Capt. David on the Little Tybee Unplugged trip and thoroughly enjoyed it. Based on their advice we scheduled our trip for high tide which allows access to parts of Little Tybee that you cannot get to at low tide. We saw a lot of birds, dolphins, horseshoe crabs and even a stingray. Great trip and very reasonable prices for a private excursion.

“Amazing experience with Rene”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2014

We decided to book a last minute boat trip out of Tybee. Rene was incredibly responsive and also helpful in determining which of her tours to book. Ultimately, we decided to go at low tide into the salt marshes. We saw dolphins, sharks, egrets, pelicans, skimmers. Fiddler, her dog, came along and this dog has a KEEN sense of when the dolphins are near. Fiddler spent most of her time napping, but when dolphins approached, she would jump on the bow of the boat....moving to the right or left depending on which group of dolphins was going to approach the surface on which side of the boat. Rene was also very informative. We enjoyed this trip a great deal....this is highly recommended!
