Awesome dolphin and nature cruise. Learned a lot about the area and marine life. Kids really enjoyed it. Looking forward to this again next year. We'll try the Sunset Cruise.
Thank you.

This is a great way to spend a couple of hours and get an up close view of dolphins and interesting information on the fish and birds of Hilton Head as well as just a pleasant ride on Broad Creek.

I would highly recommend this tour. Let them know ahead of time if there is a wheelchair user in your party and they will make sure that you have the appropriate boat. They had a small ramp on board to get onto the ship comfortably. The boat was full, but not over-crowded.

My husband, daughter, her friend and our 2 granddaughters aged 3 & 9 took this cruise on a beautiful sunny Sunday. We took the 3:00-4:30 afternoon cruise with Captain Ted and First Mate Brenda. Their 2 boats went out full, we'd chosen the larger of the two, the Island Queen, as it was easier to get on and off. While we waited at the ramp to take off we saw 1 dolphin. But it was about an hour into the cruise before we saw any more. During the cruise, which was relaxing for my husband and myself but not very entertaining for the little ones, the captain would point out some exclusive properties, and some of the birds like osprey and brown pelicans. But I would have loved to hear some of the history of the area. There wasn't a lot of talking at all. Brenda did get the kids attention towards the end of the cruise when she let the kids take turns wearing the captain's hat and steering the boat. The prices for the tour ($18/$9) were reasonable so this tour is a good value.

Smaller boat with 2 man crew. Gave us lots of info and saw lots of dolphins. More reasonable than other tours, but had a good time.
