Welcome aboard Tybee Island's fastest, most enjoyable boat cruise. We have over 700h.p. to get the action going. Dolphin love to play alongside our boat. Enjoy such sights as Ft. Pulaski, Cockspur and Tybee lighthouses, barrier islands and the Brown Pelican. Dolphin Guaranteed. Large restroom aboard. Coast Guard approved for up to 90 passengers on both boats.

the Savannah River Dolphins were everywhere. Very hard to get a shot so bring a cell with a video setting or you might not get a good picture

No trip to Tybee is complete without a sunset tour. Perfect activity to escape the beach, while still being outside. The sunset looks even better in person!

Easy booking and very affordable. We saw several dolphins as well as received an Informative tour . We had a beautiful sunset. The crew was great, I only wished more of the tourists on our trip would have tipped the crew. Highly recommend
