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.

Pickles & Chips!

Took the Sestra’s out for a nice dolphin tour around Hilton Head. We got to see a bunch of dolphins and even got to see a mother and baby dolphin affectionately nicknamed by the crew “Pickles & Chips!” Great tour lots of fun.

Amazing!

We were a little worried before we left that we wouldn't see any dolphins - within the first ten minutes we saw one and then we pulled out and saw so many we lost count - including baby dolphins. I'm terrible with names but both...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.
