Captain Grant took time to answer every little question my kids had. It was the perfect excursion even on a cloudy day.

Rented a kayak at Shelter Cove for a 1-2 hour solo exploration of Broad Creek on a calm afternoon. Mickey was very helpful with route suggestions, equipment adjustments and launch. Not much boat traffic--just birds and tiny fish, one of which jumped across my boat. No dolphins today, but a
vigorous and relaxing workout. Highly recommended.

Captain "Not Bob" was outstanding! His care to insure we had an informative safe trip was fabulous. He was extremely knowledgeable and kept us totally engaged the entire trip. A bit of rain dampened our afternoon, but not our time in the water. Excellent job

We're thrilled you had such a wonderful time! We often say that trips in the rain can be some of the most fun, as the wildlife is typically extraordinarily active during these periods. Thanks so much for your nice review - we hope you're able to join us again on the water soon!

Gratefully,

We recently chartered a boat for my wife and I to travel from Shelter Cove, Hilton Head to Savanah and it was amazing! Aside from all the beautiful sights along the way, our captain, John was totally awesome and knew all about all of the spots we passed along the way. He was courteous, friendly and knew exactly where we could see dolphins, bald eagels and the like. Just a fantastic time.

Had a wonderful guide who was patient with our questions and very knowledgeable about marine life, flora and fauna as well as local history. We had a great time. Saw at least 10 pods of dolphins in both open water and in the salt marshes. Would greatly recommend taking tour.

We took a Dolphin Cruise and got Captain Joe Brasfield. He was absolutely amazing, fabulous, marvelous, etc. It was one of the BEST cruises we have ever been on. He was informative and entertaining. He made us excited to learn! What we learned was absolutely fascinating! We learned about every single detail you think of - from marshland to the homes on the island to animals of the area. It seemed like he could answer every question we had, and seemed to genuinely love his job. We definitely recommend this trip AND this captain.

The 90 minute dolphin eco cruise was well executed. We were impressed with Captain Wells Fulton's knowledge of dolphins, other aquatic life, birds and history of the area.
