Luckily we were on a cruise with only about 35 people. The captain was great at spotting the dolphins and we were able to see them pretty close up. His mate was a very nice young lady who was helpful and always had a smile on her face.

2:00pm departure. There were numerous dolphins within 100 yards of departure. Our route was from the HarbourTown yacht basin to the mouth of the Calibogue Sound, then closer to Daufuskie Island. Saw a lot more dauphins than expected. captain did a thorough job of narration.

Our most memorable moment was: Seeing and getting a picture of a dolphin right by the boat; and seeing a dolphin leap right out of the water near us

The crew and captain were very nice and informative as we took this 90 minute tour of the Hilton head area. The captain provided all sorts of information on the dolphins in the area, the Eco system and other wildlife you might see. We did see dolphins pretty much from the start of the trip until the end. The thing you have to remember it's kind of like the Jurassic park movie where just because you are on a dolphin's sightseeing tour, doesn't mean the dolphins will always cooperate... ( Are there any dinosaurs on this dinosaur tour?) There were times we saw 2-3 dolphins but they keep diving underwater (cause that's what they do) so there are plenty of times where you are just looking at the water. We got lucky at the end where a pod of 10 - 12 dolphins were swimming close to our boat and it was spectacular. Worth the trip!
