Till his waters have flooded the uttermost creeks and the low-lying lanes,
And the marsh is meshed with a million veins,
That like as with rosy and silvery essences flow
In the rose-and-silver evening glow.
– Sydney Lanier, The Marshes of Glynn
Looking for the ideal Hilton Head Island tour? Enjoy the remaining hours of daylight on Hilton Head cruising the water with a private sunset dolphin tour. As the sun sets behind Daufuskie Island, it casts the Harbourtown Lighthouse in its soft glow, making the local icon its most photogenic time of the day.
The bright vibrant green of the summer spartina grass turn almost amber in the sun’s waning light. Dolphins surface and play with one another in the calm waters as dusk approaches.
30 minutes longer than our standard Private Dolphin Tour, we’ll have more time to take in the sights of the sound, cruising along the coastlines of Hilton Head and Daufuskie Island. Dolphin sightings often appear almost at every stop. We’ll venture into Dolphin Cove along the back creeks, hoping to spy maternity pods playing in the waning light of the day.
Like all our excursions, this is a private boat tour! You’ll be aboard our spacious Carolina Skiff Ultra Elite with just your group on this Hilton Head Island tour. Able to accommodate up to 6 passengers, you’ll be guided along the water by your Captain, a Lowcountry Master Naturalist. Having a private tour ensures you’ll get a great view no matter where you sit.
What to bring: sunscreen, hat, jacket (watch the weather!), refillable water bottle (filtered water provided), camera, questions.
