Took the 11:00 am cruise and were not disappointed! Saw loads of dolphin jumping and swimming near a shrimper. Captain Gator was an expert navigating the wake of a huge container ship on its way into port. A good ride, beautiful scenery, fun commentary and at a bargain price. The hour long excursion was just enough. Go take a cruise... More

Great guide on the boat & lots of dolphins. Excellent for grade school trip. The weather was perfect so we enjoyed a wonderful sight seeing tour of homes, as well.

This was absolutely the best dolphin tour we have been on. First Mate Chris was so entertaining from the time we got there, until we disembarked. Ashely, the ticket attendant made us feel so welcome, and her smile is so contagious. Keep up the great tours, we will definitely be back. Thank you for offering a 5+ star tour for... More

Gorgeous sunset and the dolphins came out to play too! Had an excellent time! Our Captains were great and kept us entertained with appropriate tunes during the trip (I won't spoil with naming the tracks). Highly recommend and so far has been the highlight of our visit to Tybee!!

We came to visit the beach but I really wanted to be on the water, after seeing the dolphins swimming I know we would enjoy a water adventure. I chose Captain Derek because of the seal of excellence it received from Trip advisor. It is the greatest value on the island. The boat was clean, not overly crowded, very comfortable,... More

We really enjoyed the dolphin tour. We went on a Monday 11am and the boat was not crowded ~ it was about half the amount of people that they can fit and it seemed perfect. This was the reason I chose the 11am time, as I assumed it would be more crowded in the afternoon. I was a little concerned... More

My husband and I, along with our 3 boys (ages 8, 10,& 11) went on the sunset dolphin cruise. We ordered our tickets online earlier that day. It was really easy. The cruise left on time and boarding was easy. We had Captain Gator and 1st Mate Ashley. They were both very knowledgeable and funny! We seen tons of dolphins... More
