We had a terrific time. The narration was funny and informative. Our family - four adults and two pre-schoolers - enjoyed this a lot. Dolphins, sunset, and lighthouse -- what more can you want?

If someone is very susceptible to motion sickness would this boat tour be ok? Are you in the ocean, intercoatstal? Will you still see dolphins in mid/late September? Thank you!

Our trip was pretty calm, more intercoastal than ocean. No idea what you would see at a different time of year.
We booked the sunset tour for our trip to Savannah in May. Wondering if this tour is conducive to bringing food/dinner aboard, or if you'd suggest we dine either before or after, and if so, nearby restaurant recommendations?
