With over 170 residential Atlantic bottlenose dolphins and around 400 nomadic bottlenose dolphins passing through Hilton Head waters, it’s no wonder dolphin sightings are so much fun. Our tours however, take dolphin watching to a new level. Our tour guide knows most of our local dolphins by name and will introduce you to them as we come across them. We will teach you how to tell them apart, too! Not only will you get to know the dolphins as individuals, but you will also learn about bottlenose dolphins as a species and how they adapt to our local low country ecosystem. Our tours are 90 minutes long and our boat is covered to keep you out of the hot sun. Our boat is spacious and holds up to 32 people and sits low to the water for optimal viewing. The boat floor is painted with a mural that includes a life-size Leatherback and Loggerhead Sea Turtle and full size dolphin. We have props on board to help you better understand our wildlife, they include a dolphin skull, shark teeth, and you will get to learn what a dolphin feels like. We are an eco-friendly tour and encourage you to bring your own reusable water. As we cruise around Hilton Head waters and the Pinckney Island National Wildlife refuge we will get up close and person with Low Country wild life. We may see: Dolphins, birds such as Bald Eagle, Pelican, Great Blue Heron, Egret, Wood Stork, Spoonbill and more, Sea Turtles, Alligators, Manatees, Sharks, Sting Rays, Blue Crabs, and more.

We watch the weather closely as it changes constantly in Hilton Head. If the tour needs to be cancelled due to the weather we will let you know as soon as the Captain makes the call.
