About this one of kind Nature Tour

This eco tour is family friendly and great for all ages! With over 170 residential Atlantic bottlenose dolphins and around 400 nomadic bottlenose dolphins passing through Hilton Head waters, it is no wonder dolphin sightings are so much fun. 

Our tours however, take dolphin watching to a new level. Our tour guide knows most of our local dolphins by name and will introduce you to them as we come across them. We will teach you how to tell them apart, too! Not only will you get to know the dolphins as individuals, but you will also learn about bottlenose dolphins as a species and how they adapt to our local low country ecosystem. 


Our tours are 90 minutes long and our pontoon boat is covered to keep you out of the hot sun. Our boat is spacious and holds up to 24 people and sits low to the water for optimal viewing of pods of dolphins swimming around Hilton Head. 


As we cruise around Hilton Head waters, Broad Creek and the Calibogue Sound we will get up close and personal with Lowcountry wildlife. On this wildlife tour we may see the following wildlife and marine life: Dolphins, birds such as Bald Eagle, Pelican, Great Blue Heron, Egret, Wood Stork, Spoonbill and more, Sea Turtles, Alligators, Manatees, Sharks, Sting Rays, Blue Crabs, and more.   


There is nothing better than to see lots of dolphins in their natural habitat. If you want to see a beautiful sunset over the salt marsh we also offer a Sunset Cruise as well. Our dolphin cruises are fun for any age!
