Meet your tour at Palmetto Bay Marina at your chosen time. Depart for an exciting experience as you explore and search the waterways of Hilton Head Island for the extremely friendly Atlantic Bottlenose dolphin. Your small group will see these splendid Atlantic bottlenose dolphins feeding, playing, and simply cruising around the waters in their natural habitat as you learn about their social behavior, feeding habits, and much more. This tour has a very high chance to see dolphins as the waters around Hilton Head are home to one of the world’s largest populations.
As the cruise travels around Hilton Head Island not only will you see Dolphins but you may catch a glimpse of other sea-life such as manatees, egrets, herons,sea turtles, roseate spoonbills, and osprey plus beautiful mansions along the coast, working shrimp boats, and incredible luxury yachts. You will then return to the dock to enjoy the rest of your day!

Ben, Scott, and Mark, were incredible, informative, comical, and generally a great well rounded team!! My husband and I will do this again!!
Capt. Ben told us all about the animals, environmental information about the Hilton Head area, as well as the very expensive homes - very interesting. He was accommodating when we actually SAW dolphins (apparently many have moved to warmer waters) but we saw a Mom and calf playing, and some perhaps 3 more of their friends joined us over the next 1.5 hours - including pelicans. Apparently we were "between tides." And, as in the picture, 1 of the dolphins decided to "check us out" (1 eye at a time) which was awesome! He did this several times, we have pictures! Anyway, highly recommend this activity and Capt. Ben!
A very nice boat ride in Calibogue Sound. The boat we were supposed to be on had a recent engine replacement and they were waiting on the Coast Guard to inspect it. We took the pirate ship instead. It was comfy and had excellent visibility of the dolphins playing and feeding in the water. The captain was an excellent boat pilot and had lots of interesting things to tell us. It was relaxing, sunny, not too hot and with a nice breeze. I recommend this.
