This was so much fun and worth every penny!!! My husband was hoping that we wouldn't see any dolphins because he was wanting to come back the next day and get to go again for free! We sit in the back and got completely soaked but was mostly dry by the time we got back! Just have some towels in... More

We have gone to Myrtle Beach for the last few years and have gone on either the Sea Thunder or the Sea Screamer. There are between 8 and 14 of us when we went on them. We like the Sea Screamer better because you get wetter that boat, but both are great. Sit on the back when it's on the... More

Very affordable, and family friendly.. nice ride out the intercostal waterway and then out to the ocean... the captain is very knowledgeable and informative, and the first mate super attentive and friendly with any needs or questions... we saw lots of dolphins!! However if you don't see any, you get a free pass for another ride..

We wanted to take this tour to see some dolphins and quite honestly we saw more dolphins off our balcony at the condo in the morning. We were very disappointed they weren't closer to the boat than they were. The driver of the boat turned the boat in such a way that we got very wet (wish I would've taken... More

We had a blast on the Sea Thunder! The Captain and his mate Jason were fantastic! The sights were spectacular through the intercoastal waterway and then you go out to the ocean.. The boat speeds up and you get splashed.. Especially in the front, so take a towel...then you will find the Dolphins! We saw two! Great attraction and out... More

We decided to take the Sea thunder and it was a great choice. We thoroughly enjoyed speaking with Captain Patrick and First Mate Jason who are both excellent people. ( do not blame anything I write on them) One thing I noticed was a lack of music aboard the cruise. During the 6 mile ride to the Atlantic Ocean bits... More

It's set up with a shrimping boat that they travel to, the shrimp boat attracted many dolphins with fish they discard back in ocean. We did see numerous dolphins. Ride out and back was nice, but we wouldn't do it again.

The Sea Thunder, sister boat of Sea Screamer, is a great family attraction that takes you from the dock in Little River, down the Intercoastal Waterway, and into the Atlantic Ocean to observe dolphins off the shores of North Myrtle Beach. Great fun for all. USE SUN SCREEN for this event.
