Six of us went crabbin and had a great time. Chris was charming. The river is beautiful and it was fun to catch the crab. We looked up a recipe, cooked them and enjoyed our dinner. This is definitely something to do while in the area. Kim from San Diego

What a great experience. And Captain Chris is wonderful. There were six adults in our group and we all had a great time. The folks in the trip before us had small children and they were beaming as they came off the boat. Highly recommend.

I was in tybee island at the time and saw this on groupon. at the time there were no reviews anywhere. But we decided to go on the hour long drive to Bluffton to see the dolphins. We hadn't seen dolphins for the first 10 minutes and were a little anxious. That is until a baby dolphin cam up to the side of our boat. we saw about 15 dolphins. Not only that but they kept coming up to our boat and so the captain let us get out and swim with them. Let me tell you that that was the best experience EVER. He actually didn't have anyone going after our excursion for another 3 hours. We stayed another 2 hours and if you don't go there and do this, you are freaking crazy.

I have been visiting Bluffton/ Hilton Head for 20 years. I brought my 2 kids, ages 8 and 10, this visit and we were all dying to see dolphins. On the trip we saw 10-12 dolphins all around the boat. Capt. Chris was great with the kids and even let them drive the boat. Afterwards he suggested walking up Calhoun St. First we stopped at a playground and the kids played and then we got ice cream after that. It was an all around great day and I highly recommend taking the trip.

Captain Chris was terrific! My 9 and 11 year old boys had an awesome time. They got to pet a dolphin and catch plenty of fish. The 11 year old reeled in a bonnet head shark almost as big as he is and the nine year reeled in more fish than anyone else. Great trip for young, old and in between. All around awesome and looking forward to doing it again.
