Overview
The coast of Hilton Head Island provides a prime location for dolphin-watching cruises. On this family-friendly tour, you’ll boost your odds of spotting dolphins and other marine life with the help of an onboard guide, while also learning about the local aquatic life. Plus, by planning ahead, you'll  secure a desired time slot, especially during the busy summer season.
What to Expect
At your chosen time slot, you’ll meet your guide at meeting point near Broad Creek, and depart on the cruise in search of Atlantic Bottlenose dolphin. You, along with a small group on board, will get the chance to spot dolphins in their natural habitat, while learning about their behaviors, feeding habits, and more from your guide.

In addition to dolphins, you may also view other marine life, such as manatees, egrets, herons, sea turtles, roseate spoonbills, and osprey, as you cruise around Hilton Head Island. Plus, the area’s waterways offer the chance to check out beachfront properties, operating fishing boats, and luxury yachts along the coastline. At the end of the tour, you will return to the dock at the marina.

Excellent Dolphin tour

This tour exceeded our expectations. Took my visiting adult daughter. I’ve never seen so many dolphins on one tour. Can’t believe how many moms and babies were swimming alongside the boat. Great crew and loved the smaller boat

Dolphin tour exceeded expectations. Wasn’t expecting as much as we saw in the water. Great crew. Highly recommended for a group or just a couple

Great dolphin watching

We did the 1.5 hour dolphin tour and it was fantastic. We took our 2 and 4 year olds and they enjoyed it as much as we did. We saw probably around 30 dolphins, maybe more. It was really amazing! We did the 5pm ride...More

Great experience with nature!

This was such a pleasant, low-key boat tour all about finding dolphins and giving us time to observe them and capture great pictures and videos of them. The nature guide was informative and friendly. We loved this tour and highly recommend any of their services.

Family favorite

This is our second year doing the tour and we love it so much! Price is good, staff is great. We did both the pirate and regular boat (pirate was our favorite). We saw quite a few dolphins and got a nice tour. Absolutely worth...More

We went mid day and there were only a few out but it was raining too. It was still a nice tour on a covered pontoon. It was about an hour long.

Large pontoon that seats about 20, there is a “roof” and a wall about 3’ high then open sides. It was a fairly new boat in very clean condition.

You should call, I think it may work, but the ramp from the upper dock to the lower dock is a little steep.
