We had a fun time aboard Jekyll Island Dolphin Tours. Our captain and guide were very entertaining and knowledgeable. We will do this again next time we’re back in the area.

I have been on this tour several times, but this is the first time I did the sunset tour. It was extremely successful. We saw lots of dolphins. Several pods were playing around the boat. The sunset was brilliant. Will definitely do this again.

While traveling for business, we randomly decided to take a trip to Jekyll Island on a week night. We quickly stumbled across the Dolphin Tour and with one at 7:00pm, it is perfect for a post-work/sunset outing. The tour guides were fantastic! Great mix of...More

We saw about 4 dolphins on the 90 minute trip. I never got a great view of them because there are a lot of people on board and it would be rude to lean over people to see what they were seeing. HOWEVER, this experience...More

Our Public Dolphin Tours are 90 minutes so if we leave at 2 PM we will be back at 3:30 PM. We try very hard to leave and to return on time. Thanks!

Jekyll Island is about a 25 minute drive from Brunswick. Jekyll has a lot of great restaurants. I don't have a favorite restaurant in Brunswick, I live in Darien about 30 minutes north and my favorite is Skippers Fish Camp.
