Lovely late morning dolphin cruise.

We had a lovely cruise around the Pinckney Island NWR and the sound. We saw well-over a dozen dolphins, ospreys, turtles, herons and enumerable other shore birds. Highly recommend!
A Wonderful Experience and Terrific Way to Start the Day!

My wife and I really enjoyed this experience! The captain was pleasant and knowledgeable. The scenery was beautiful, and we spent a good amount of time floating in the midst of a pod of very playful dolphins. As an added bonus, it was mating season for the manta rays, and we saw three rays jump up out of the water right in front of our boat. It was incredible! Thanks for a great morning!

Dave was a gracious and informative guide. Not only did we see dolphins and other wildlife, we got some of the history of the area. We’ll be back to take the Savannah trip!

We had a wonderful time. Our captain was knowledgeable and engaging. Saw lots of dolphins but it was also just a fantastic way to spend an afternoon. Very relaxing with beautiful views. Could not have been better.
Lots of Dolphins and Eagles on a very windy day. Intimate private tour with the Captain giving us a lot of history of the area.

We had a great time with captain Dave on our off-season dolphin watching trip!Our 5 year old got super excited seeing dolphins up close in the water and we learned a lot from our knowledgeable guide. We got to observe dolphins stranding schools of fish and feeding on them twice, saw a spooky live oak tree, perfect for Halloween (as it was) and then were treated to admiring two majestic bald eagles sitting together on a pine tree.Thank you for a great time on your fast and comfortable boat captain Dave!We would definitely recommend this experience.

We had an absolutely amazing time. 10/10 Would recommend and will use again. Captain Dave was awesome. We saw dolphins, learned history and saw a bald eagle. It was the highlight of our trip and we can not wait to come back and do it again. The smaller personal tour was so much more relaxing! Thanks for an amazing time and making the girls day on the boat!

What a fabulous cruise to celebrate my 70th birthday! We saw lots of dolphins (and even a bald eagle!) and learned so much about the history of the various islands that we cruised around. Captain Dave is so personable and knowledgeable, I came away feeling we’d been out with a good friend. I highly recommend this excursion!

I was traveling to HHI for a week with my 3 year old daughter and my parents for my Mom's 70th birthday and knew I wanted to book a private boat tour for our family of 4. After much "homework" on TripAdvisor, Google, Yelp...all the places one gets travel info, I booked the 2 hour (10am) tour with Captain Dave through Hilton Head Boat Charters and I am SO glad I did. We could not have possibly had a better experience and it was the highlight of our trip and a memory I know we will all talk about for years to come.From the minute I booked I got lots of helpful information via text and email including photos of the boat and dock and specific directions. Tip: follow the directions you are sent...Waze will take you on a joyride down dirt roads in the nature preserve...but Captn Dave will not lead you astray! The boat was immaculately clean and Captain Dave was the literal perfect tour guide. He was kind and personable, patient with our million questions, happy to stop to let us see a bird/fish/whatever we wanted to get a more close up view of, and super knowledgeable about the area from wildlife to history to current must-sees and situations.And the dolphins.....my goodness I had NO idea we'd see so many! I'd set my expectations low because they are wild animals and you can't control the environment. But we saw so many! 4 different pods - the first of which we spotted after only being on the water about 20 minutes. It was incredible to watch them come up for air and swim around so close to the boat.Captain Dave and his business are top notch on literally every single front: Professional, informative, kind, easy to work with, great value and really really fun. We will definitely be back and have already recommended this tour to people we've met on the island!
