We had such a fabulous time on this dolphin tour. Our captain was wonderful-he told us all about the area, the shrimp boats, the water and was so knowledgeable. He allowed the kids to steer the boat for a bit and took pictures for us. We saw so many Dolphins while we were on the water. It was simply amazing. The boat was on the smaller side so we were able to feel the water spray rather than being up so high on a larger boat and just seeing it. I highly recommend this!

I was in Hliton Head Island, SC for two weeks and loved every minute of it!!! The best part about the trip was a fantastic Commander Zodiac trip with Captain Jamie on Sunday, July 26, 2015. Not only was the amazing experience of the actual ride something fantastic, but the amazing experience in dealing with the office manager, Judy, a treat!!! She, as well as Captain Jamie, are two amazing, very personable individuals and I highly recommend Commander Zodiac to all who have the chance to visit South Beach Marina!!! It is the BEST business at the marina!!!

My new husband and I have been honeymooning in Hilton Head, SC since Monday. First time here for both of us, and are thoroughly enjoying this island!!! Woke up this morning and wanted to go on a boat. Everything we called was booked, except Commander Zodiac had a cancelation for a two hour motorized raft ride. We Immediately got dressed and left for south beach in sea pines with no expectations. The dock for commander zodiac is next to The Salty Dog restaurant. Surprised that we boarded a raft that resembled a boat, but was open for a new adventure. The raft is the kind that the coast guard uses and is very very fun! It was a gorgeous day, but a little windy. Matt was our captain and he was very informative and you could tell he loved his job!! He navigated us to a sand dune and let us out for about 30 minutes to look for sand dollars and shells. We saw a lot of cool birds and beautiful views of surrounding islands and the lighthouses. He knew just were to go to guarantee dolphin sightings! We saw at least 50-60 dolphins that were practically swimming right next to us! Being from up north, I was very excited about this! He also took us to see old ruins on the ajacent island, and down a river (I forget the name) to Dolphin Cove! He stopped when we saw something cool, and sped up and went fast so we almost felt like we were on a high adventure tour! Warning: you get just a little wet, and bc of the bumpy ride, if you have a bad back or arthritis in your hands, I wouldn't recommend it. But if you want a different experience that mixes history, nature, adventure, discovery, and being on the water, this experience was incredible!!!!! We had 4 adults (including us), one little boy who was probably 2 or 3 years old, plus one captain on our raft /boat. Worth the $59/per person + the $20 tip that captain Matt deserved. Very cool and memorable day here in Hilton Head with captain Matt at Commander Zodiac.

This adventure turned a bad day around. After being charged a exorbitant amount to enter the resort, $25. We were glad we had reservations for the 1 1/2 hr. dolphin Zodiak trip. Diane, who took our reservation tried very hard to help us with our entrance fee problem. She was great, as well as, Todd our guide. He provided a very pleasant and informative experience.

We were a family of 6 taking this excursion for the first time. Our guide was Matt - he was extremely informative with the tour! We had a blast finding live star fish and sand dollars on Dufuskie Island and saw quite a few dolphin. Book this tour with Matt, you won't be disappointed.
