My husband and I went on a dolphin cruise for our anniversary with Captain Derek's Gator and Rebecca in December 2016! The dolphins were very active and getting to see several lighthouses were absolutely amazing!

My family and I live about 30 minutes from Savannah, we were looking for some fun over the MLK weekend and decided on this. Rebecca was a great first mate and had great information. Gator was a delightful captain and both were outstanding host! We also saw several dolphins and highly recommended this to anyone interested!!

A company that still believes in customer service and is doing it right. If you are expecting a luxury liner, then go somewhere else, but if you are looking to have a great time and see Dolphins, while learning a little about Tybee island, then this is your place. We went Dolphin watching with three your children. The first day... More

We went today for this tour today with our two small children. Captain Gator and Chris were excellent! Chris' humor during the tour kept us entertained while Captain Gators experience kept us calm and comfortable during our trip. I would highly recommend this tour for anybody visiting Tybee Island or Savannah!

We came on a cold/windy day in December so off season and it was a bit chilly. When the boat goes fast it does get a little too cold. Be sure to bring a heavy jacket if temps are below 60 degrees. Saw a couple dolphins but only glimpses. Overall, worth the price but not worth seeing again.
