The meal was outstanding. The cruise was beautiful. We saw lots of dolphins and had the run of the boat and could go all over it if needed.

The day trip to Savannah on the Spirit of Harbortown boat is a great adventure in Hilton Head. This is a 1.5 hour trip through the beautiful waterwaters. This is so much better than driving to Savannah and walking around. We loved the tour.

So much fun! The crew was amazing. Lauren, Jaden and Peter were so much fun. We ended up taking over the back of the boat and Captain let everyone steer.

First: Be aware of the up-sell! As you board your photo is taken and it is offered for sale later for $12. Why not just up the price a bit and include this as an amenity? It seemed a bit silly to surprise people with...More
