We are locals and yet this is the first time we've been on a dolphin tour. It was excellent! Our only regret was that it's taken us so long to book a trip but we are so glad we finally did! Our guides were knowledgeable and personable; the boat was very comfortable and provided easy viewing all around. We got... More

This is our second time in the tour and it was another excellent experience. It is easy to make reservations, the tour guides are knowledgeable about all aspects of the area and want to make sure you see dolphins.

We had multiple dolphin sightings with a lot of jumps & surface breeches; mating pod right at the dock.....so the caption broke out the Barry White music. Osprey dove & took a fish 150-ft from boat and returned to feed nesting young. We saw several species of water birds, some fishing. Captain John was entertaining, funny & knowledgable! Best bang...

We had a most enjoyable boat tour that lucked upon amazing dolphin pods and activity. The Captains of the vessel were knowledgeable of dolphin behavior, had entertaining music, facts and jokes to enhance the observations and pleasant banter when touring the Inter-coastal Waterways. Safe, clean and entertaining fun on the water.

Captain Adam was fantastic and very knowledgeable about dolphins, other wild life and the local area. We spotted several dolphins before even leaving the dock and then saw even more when we found a shrimp boat. I took a 20mo. old who really had a great time.

This is my second time going on their dolphins tour. We got to see 3 dolphins including a 2 week old baby. Saw them multiple times and one even came right by the boat for a second. This of course was the reason for the tour and the highlight but the rest was very lacking. The tour guides barely talked... More

My parents, niece and I went over to Jekyll Island and the Dolphin Tour was on the top of our list. My father wasn't able to go on the tour because of health issues. However, my mother, niece and I LOVED it! We saw dolphins all over! We enjoyed the Captain and 1st mate's humor. Would love to go again... More

It was one of the best dolphin tours we've been on. The captain was extremely funny (John?) and his wife (Co-captain) very informative. We saw many dolphin and enjoyed the beautiful boat ride as well.
