Great guide, great tour, great weather! We learned a lot and enjoyed our humorous captain. We saw plenty of dolphins and other wildlife on our cruise. And we were allowed to BYOB for an even more relaxing evening cruise and sunset. Loved it!

This was a great experience! We saw dolphins within minutes of being on the boat. W also got to see a few other creatures along our tour (stingray, shrimp, crab) that were brought onto the boat for us to view. The captain and his wife provided a lot of information on the Georgia coast and were very friendly and entertaining.

My husband and I took this tour the second time they were running it. +There was live music (not sure if that will always be a thing). +The captains were very friendly. +We caught a glimpse of many dolphins! -Many others thought to bring an appetizer/snacks - we didn't think of it, but great idea!

Having lived in SE Georgia for nearly 4 years, our family finally decided to give the dolphin tour a try and we are certainly glad that we did. It was bot amazing and fun... we could have stayed for hours. The crew were both fun AND great and we were able to see many dolphins really quickly. Not only did... More

We took a group of 25 for an evening cruise. Some were local others from out of town including Arizona so not familiar with dolphins. It was a spectacular tour. Dolphins playing sunset stunning. Regardless of age....do this for a relaxing adventure.

Very nice captain and narrator. Interesting area. Saw mother and baby dolphins and birds. Not as thrilling as whale watching but did not expect that. Maybe a little more island history would have been nice. Overall good trip.

We would have been thrilled to see one dolphin. However, we saw a dozen, including infants. Just awesome.

The Good, the Bad, and the Verdict. The Good: Relaxing boat ride with a friendly crew through through the island's tide marsh. Crew shares interesting facts about the local island history and wildlife. Dolphin appearances are naturally hard to predict, but I would estimate we had 20-30 minutes total during the 90 minutes or so we were afloat. Restrooms available... More

Wasn't the most scenic wildlife watching cruise. Started out on the bigger river then headed up a 100 foot wide river in search of dolphins. Found 3 on the way back to dock which was great. Water was so choppy and brown you couldn't see anything until they breached. Lots of bird life at low tide. Crew was good but... More

I'm sorry that the tour was not what you expected. Where we go and what we see on our tours changes from tour to tour. The water was brown and choppy because all of the hard wind that we have had for so many days. We never know how many dolphin that we will see, it changes hour by hour.... More
