“It is of interest to note that while some dolphins are reported to have learned English- up to 50 words used in correct context- no human being has been reported to have learned Dolphinese.” – Carl Sagan
Ranked the World’s Number One Family Friendly Experience by TripAdvisor! Join us on Hilton Head for an outing your family will remember for ages, observing one of the most intelligent creatures on the planet; finding dolphins playing in the wild on your own private boat!
Bring your inquisitive minds and cameras on this private dolphin tour! For ninety minutes we’ll explore the Calibogue Sound along the coast of Hilton Head Island with the opportunity to observe wild Atlantic bottlenose dolphins swimming, feeding, and socializing. While we never know what we’ll find, we guarantee we’ll find dolphins on your trip!
Your Captain is also certified as a Lowcountry Master Naturalist. You’ll learn about the history of the island, the ecology of the Lowcountry and particularly the salt marsh. While viewing dolphins, you’ll learn about their social habits, physiology, diet, and more! You’ll also have the opportunity to view other marine animals. Rays, sea turtles, manatees and sharks make cameos throughout the season!
We’ll depart from 68 Helmsman Way, along Broad Creek, just under the bridge. Cruising through Broad Creek and out into the Calibogue Sound, we’ll pass along the iconic Harbour Town Lighthouse. Our search for dolphins may take us to the coastline of Daufuskie Island or into the waters of Bull Creek.
You’ll be aboard our spacious Carolina Skiff Ultra Elite with just your group, up to 6 passengers, and your Captain. No other people! Having a private dolphin tour ensures you’ll get a great view no matter where you sit. Social distancing at its finest!
