Regular sightings of marine wild life include: Osprey, Sea Turtles, Herons, Egrets, Pelicans, Cormorants, Oyster Catchers, Bald Eagles, and of course the Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphin. If you are a bird or nature lover, this is the tour for you!
Once onboard our dolphin tour, we will get under way in Broad Creek and watch for the Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins. They live in Broad Creek year round so we see them at the dock every day, sometimes before we leave for the cruise. We encourage the passengers to keep a sharp watch for them as dolphins can hold their breath for as long as 5 minutes.
Once we find them, we cruise with them for as long as the passengers require to capture photos, ask questions, and to encounter the dolphins. Next, we will continue down Broad Creek toward Calibogue Sound. You will see beautiful homes in Long Cove, Wexford (Lock System) and Spanish Wells Plantations. This is one of the highlights of the trip. These are famous gated communities that make Hilton Head what it is today.
Normally we will arrive in Calibogue Sound about half way through the trip. There we will see the Harbour Town Lighthouse, Daufuskie Island, the Atlantic Ocean, and on a clear day, Tybee Island and the Savannah River bridge (8 miles). Our experienced captains narrate these trips.
